Simply put, this movie about sweeper salesmen is a comedic vacuum.

Writer-Director Jeff Daniels comes up with about forty-five minutes of inspired silliness, but, eventually, Super Sucker winds up being a one-joke film, though, admittedly, that joke is often funnier than it should be.

If you think you've seen every possibility for a sex comedy, then you haven't seen Super Sucker -- and thank your lucky stars for that.

There's only one joke in Super Sucker, but it's a good one.

Has a mad energy and proud idiocy that's impossible to deny.

The quirky and bizarre nature of the material would have been better suited to a director more nimble with absurd, broad and physical humor.

Daniels obviously loves the medium and knows how to assemble a movie, but he needs to flesh out a story that could easily have been told between beers and burps at the Escanaba hunting camp.

Daniels shows his affection for Middle America in every Super Sucker scene and he proves he knows this turf down to the barn-wood paneling of Jackson City's steakhouse.

a lively tale about competition, commerce, community values and, oh yeah, gross misuse of vacuum cleaner attachments.

Daniels turns to hackneyed stereotypes and easy plot lines, choosing to see the Midwest as a place where door-to-door salesmen rule the streets and bored housewives all lead unfulfilling cookie-cutter lives.

It'd be nice to report that "Super Sucker" is an out-and-out triumph, instead of just being an okay to pretty good comedy.
