Hell Baby (2013)

TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Though its brand of immature comedy may appeal to some, Hell Baby misses the mark with much of its humor, rendering it a largely ineffective -- and often crass -- genre sendup.

The film's reliance on female nudity for edge seems approximately as ancient as the withered hag who keeps trying to get it on with Corddry.

[It] rarely dares to be smart, settling instead for familiar gags that would have the Devil himself yawning.

A film that's less than half as funny as its predecessor, and a sliver as clever as the original.

This offensive, crass pastiche makes "Grown Ups 2" look like a paragon of wit and good taste.

There are genre satires, and then there are dumb comedies that wish they could qualify for that status.

Top Critic

Its modest (if occasionally gross-out) stabs at genre parody rarely insult our intelligence and even allow for the kind of retro deadpan silliness Mel Brooks used to underline his louder punch lines.

I'm afraid that this could have been fashioned by any six year old with a viewing record that includes most of the horror genre. Call it a bad version of Scary Movie..if Scary Movie were any good.

Was expecting so much more than just stand-up comedy kinda humour, but it never got beyond silly gore and dry jokes. However Leslie Bibb gave out a really great performance, she pretty much saved the film whilst Rob Corddry tried to destroy it. The film was too chattering as well, it relied too much on the dialogues and not enough action; characters all behaved in an unrealistic way, I didn't crack a single laugh at once. Well, I suppose for a low budget film you really cannot do much but to utilise what you've got. If you are into something like disaster movie or epic movie but without any references then you should watch this.
