Talented cast wasted in an awful movie.

Manages to keep up a full head of steam despite repeating the same essential jokes over and over again.

he sort of thing that will probably become a staple on Comedy Central in about five years, resting comfortably alongside such snoozers as "Once Upon A Crime" and "Who's Harry Crumb"...

In going out of their way to make the characters shocking and graceless, the filmmakers forgot that it's necessary for the audience to enjoy spending time with the characters.

It never gives us a reason to care about the characters.

The cars are the funniest thing in the movie. And really, they're not all that funny.

Drowning Mona doesn't add up to much, and its charms evaporate as soon as the lights come up.

Too bland to be repulsive.

Ultimately flat farce.

Sometimes cute, the film has trouble ever working up to funny.

Ultimately the film doesn't gather much steam, lulls from point to point, and basically just bounces around from one decent joke to another lame one and then back again.

It just doesn't add up to the kind of laughs you want to pay to see.

There's nothing else here to lampoon than more poor, classless folks.

Once you sit through the rest of this comedic approximation of a soak in pond scum, you may wish you had joined her in the Hudson River.

Drowning Mona is a funny comedy for about 90 seconds.

It's like floating to the middle of a deep lake on an inner tube with a slow leak. Things may seem fine, but that sinking feeling is just a matter of time.

Oozes condescending self-satisfaction.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10

Has promise, and it has occasional flare, but for the most part, it is a string of missed opportunities.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

Supposed to be dark and mean-spirited, but it never goes beyond a somewhat dark shade of grey.
