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.

Say isn't nearly as funny as Mary. But when it is funny, it's funny in the same tasteless way.

The last time I felt so guilty about laughing so heartily at something so lowbrow and gross was at There's Something About Mary.

If you like your comedy crude and your romance sappy-sweet, this is some good fast-food movie goin'.

Like "The Mexican," "Say It Isn't So" tries its hand at genre gender blending.

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

A cringe-inducing flop.
Emanuel Levy

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

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...

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.
