A brazenly foul-mouthed but ultimately soft-hearted comedy of bad manners.

Nature Calls eventually becomes something of an ordeal to sit through...

More "Hangover" than "Moonrise Kingdom," but with elements of both. And more than a few rude and raunchy laughs.

Forgettable, raunchy scouting comedy isn't for young kids.

... squanders its cast amid a collection of lackluster gags.

Nature Calls promises a silly good time, only to display little interest in fulfilling that promise.

It's probably best to let this particular call from nature go unheeded.

A low-watt, low-wit comedy.

It almost seems like harder work somehow to get this many comedians together and then turn out a movie that is only so fitfully funny.

Its jokes won't appeal to anyone older than 8, but a parent who takes a child to this crass mess would be subject to prosecution.

I'd write that it's the worst thing to happen to the Boy Scouts in quite some time, but the organization appears to have bigger fish to fry these days.

After a lot of wandering around, we realize we've really just been walking in circles the whole time.

Nature Calls is something else for sure, but falls short of fitting into the wild and weird cinematic world Rohal has created.

The unmitigated disaster of the camping trip just stays disastrous, the story never really finding its way from adversity to heroic redemption.

There's nothing wrong with slack misanthropy, but as piss-takes go, Nature Calls offers a pretty thin stream.

Writer-director Todd Rohal fills muddled scenes with manic amounts of jokes that all manage to land with a thud.

As capably as the plot comes together, the big laughs hardly come.

Overall, this is one comedy I hope never makes it to theaters. Ok, it's a step or two above Bucky Larson, but it's not worth the price of admission.

As it is, Nature Calls is a frequently funny mess, but a mess all the same.
