A train wreck you can't help but watch.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
While the film at times feels like a clumsily acted play, a surprising turn by Delta Burke carries the cast out of the doldrums of an often-strained plot line.
| Original Score: 2/4
A movie that, while robustly performed ... has the strange effect of not so much opening up a play for the screen as closing it in.
If the film's flaws are large, so are its laughs.
There's a genuine sweetness and familial affection that shines through Sordid Lives, and enough oddball humor to keep it mooo-ving along.
The laughs come in all the wrong places when they come at all.
Shrill and punishingly unfunny.
Del Shores' local stage hit seems at times too big for the screen.
| Original Score: 2/5
Life is too short to sit through a mess of ham bones and succotash like Sordid Lives.
