A mediocre comedy about incest.

What we have here is a wannabe-outrageous comedy that flirts with the last taboo but then retreats.

A cringe-inducing flop.

Flat, borderline banal comedy that in theory includes all the ingredients of the Farrelly brothers (who here serve as producers) about the seemingly incestuous relationship between siblings Chris Klein and Heather Graham

| Original Score: D

Jeffrey M. Anderson
Combustible Celluloid

The Farrelly brothers, Bobby and Peter, are beginning to make the same mistake that the Zucker brothers (Jerry and David, along with Jim Abrahams) made, which was to split up and take increasingly less responsibility for their films.

Poor timing and muffed set pieces are compounded by implausibility and inconsequence.

There are few laughs to be had during the running time of Say It Isn't So...

Film Quips Online

This movie sinks or swims on its humor, and frankly, the Farrellys don't appear to have been very good swimming instructors.

If it were up to me, I would make sure the Farrellys never made another film, or at least that I never had to see another.

Cincinnati Enquirer

Credit goes largely to the charm of Ms. Graham and Mr. Klein, both of whom exude a natural, sunny innocence that contrasts starkly with the naughty incest jokes swirling around them.

ReelTalk Movie Reviews

First-time director J. B. Rogers and new screenwriters Peter Gualke and Jerry Swallow appear determined to include as many gross-out scenes as possible at the expense of telling a believable story.

The trash heap of "There's Something About Mary" ripoffs grows a little higher.

...desperate, forced, as if the filmmakers are just trying to up the ante in how low they're willing to go.

I must have been gone when the memo about things like this being funny was passed out, because, in all honesty, I never knew strokes were supposed to be funny.

Shadows on the Wall

The pedestrian, predictable plot isn't really important; the film seems to exist merely as an excuse to string together gross-out sequences.

December 10, 2001

You really know a film is dead in the water when it runs for 97 minutes and feels too long.

| Original Score: 1/4

John J. Puccio
Movie Metropolis

If Say It Isn't So isn't enough to kill the gross-out comedy trend, nothing is.

| Original Score: 3/10
