The movie doesn't understand that embarrassment comes in a sudden painful flush of realization; drag it out, and it's not embarrassment anymore, but public humiliation, which is a different condition, and not funny.

Say It Isn't So is the kind of movie that makes Dumb & Dumber and Kingpin, a couple of early Farrelly Brothers movies I was not fond of, seem like comedic triumphs.

Say It Isn't So limps along on the limited charms of its leads ... and the expectation that something truly mind-boggling and funny will occur.

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

A one-joke short padded with lame misunderstandings, malevolent subterfuge and absurd coincidences that annoy rather than amuse.

This consistently unfunny movie made me feel like I'd lost the will to laugh.

Tastelessness is one thing; we've learned to deal with it and even enjoy it at times. Unfunny tastelessness is what's unforgiveable.

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

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.

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

Most of the jokes here are such duds that you can see the actors stretching for the laugh.

If this film was coated in crap, dragged through the Hudson river and then wrapped in the resume of Freddie Prinze Jr., it couldn't possibly stink any worse.

A one-joke, one-note turkey that works over Sam Shepard's Fool for Love as a mistaken identity farce hammered into the Mary blueprint, but without any of its invention, energy or heart.

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