This unfortunately titled film has an offbeat charm that just about makes up for its short running time.

Despite the brief running time, audiences will likely lose interest before the film's speedy conclusion; turns out the most unexpected -- and entertaining -- thing about "Douchebag" is its title.

Writer/director Drake Doremus has created a funny movie where the humor comes from the nature of the characters rather than obvious comic setups.

As anthropological study, as a short-storylike glimpse into a character better observed from afar -- or through the lens of a jumpy digital video camera -- Douchebag is undeniably fascinating.

The slo-mo speed bumps and hiccups indicate too much thought and emotion rather than not enough.

The most provocative thing about the DIY trifle Douchebag is its title, and even that doesn't amount to much.

It's a minimalist Sideways, not so much mumblecore as talkycore.

If watching men dressed and acting like eight-year-old boys appeals to you then "Douchebag" might be your bag. At least the filmmakers titled it properly.

Avi Offer
NYC Movie Guru

A focused and mostly compelling drama with interesting characters and very natural, raw performances, but its lazy, rushed third act sinks it into mediocrity and blandness.

The title may be mildly provocative in its vulgarity, but the most striking feature of this movie is its dullness.

An unusually eventful mumblecore road flick, the no-budget slacker odyssey Douchebag belies its abrasive title with a soft touch for two wobbly souls.

Douchebag feels both rushed and way too slack, but the bigger problem is that the kind of characters and humor this movie traffics in can be found in a more compact, amusing package on the average FX show.

Maitland McDonagh
Film Journal International

A Sundance favorite that falls somewhere between the mature polish of Sideways and the mumblecore scruffiness of Mark and Jay Duplass' slyly insightful The Puffy Chair.

In its rushed, implausible moment of reckoning, Douchebag ends up validating the frat-boy credo: Bros before hos.

Intended to amuse younger viewers and send older ones to Urban Dictionary, Douchebag's title is, unfortunately, its most noteworthy aspect

Spirituality and Practice

A fresh and funny exploration of the close encounter of two brothers who have been estranged from each other for two years.

Top Critic IconTop Critic

Dickler's acting debut is memorably repellent, even if the movie he's in -- a fitfully engaging story about two estranged brothers on a road trip -- often feels forced and unconvincing.

It definitely packs a punch and creeps into those personal places you might not want it to explore.

Leave it to Sundance to program a film like this and have it not live up to its title.
