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.

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.

Evenly divided, joke-wise, between complete non-starters and uproarious setpieces that overstay their welcome.

When you consider that Garant and Lennon make their living as screenwriters for hire, Hell Baby's shoddy script is an unholy mystery.

The movie is delightfully crude in places (including an instance of relay puking) and just plain silly-clever in others.

A doomed parody that's almost painfully unfunny.

A pileup of poorly improvised scenes and repetitive gags demonstrating zero flair for either satire or straightforward comedy.

For every oddly specific Shakespeare reference or detour to the local po-boy joint, there's an ongoing parade of puke and an awful rubber suit with which to contend.
