Taking its title from the state motto of New Hampshire, "Live Free or Die" is a deadpan comedy about a clueless, aspiring criminal named John "Rugged" Rudgate, who spends his days forging rebate coupons and selling speakers out the back of his van. One day, Rugged runs into an old acquaintance, the dim-witted Jeff Lagrand, who recently returned home to help his cynical sister run the storage facility that they inherited from their father. When Rugged tries to force his way into the Lagrand

Live Free is a comedy of vastly diminished criminal expectations. That's the fun of it, and the frustration, too.
Very much like its hapless lead character, a small-town, small-time hustler who yearns to present himself as a dangerous outlaw, Live Free or Die tries too hard, to little effect.
... low-key black comedy stars Aaron Stanford as a two-bit blowhard and small-time scammer swimming in the shallow end of the New Hampshire gene pool.
just isn't very funny, too wrapped up in its wild plot and loser lead character to ever get around to delivering a punch line
The best aspect of Live Free or Die is its unpredictability. From Rugged pulling a gun out of a kitchen drawer to the sight of his rusty blue van rolling away without anyone inside, you never quite know what's going to happen next.
None of the movie's flaws negate its many remarkable little performances and casually insightful script.
A Will Ferrell/Steve Carell-style comedy that lacks the charm associated with those actors' films.
[Live Free or Die] is a mildly entertaining little flick but a slight effort.
a lightweight film, sort of a less gruesome, slacker take on 2005's "The Ice Harvest" crossed with a common man's "Garden State," that is elevated by a cast that maintains interest when the plot lags.
There are some solid chuckles in the lowbrow crime comedy Live Free or Die but they're not enough to sustain its slight story for a whole 90 minutes.
The filmmakers have a nice grasp on the visual despair of the piece, and they use it wisely to augment the idiocy of the participants.
There are many small laughs, two or three big ones, and a lot of wide open space in between where the film ambles along unremarkably.
