Essentially a student film offering nothing but absurdly contrived coincidence.
haha this guy again, such a douche

Isn't this the entire point? It's funny because it's so absurd.
You're clearly not supposed to be taking a COMEDY seriously.

You've got to love the guy who doesn't understand the concept of a movie... complaining about the concept of the movie. The contrivances ARE the joke buddy. Damn.. I'd hate to see a movie with a clueless dick like this douche.

"But this is essentially a student film offering nothing but absurdly contrived coincidence."
Shouldn't your rating be wether the movie is good for what it is a story told.
The funny lies inthe absurd did you not get that. The coincidence is how most movies move the story along.
I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. I loved the dialogue the wirting was hilarious. I love Alan Tudyk and Tyler Labine they areboth amazing actors.

Wow, how do you not understand that this movie is satirizing the redneck horror genre?
I know a lot of people on RT love to rage against anyone who doesn't like what they do, but this is WAY missing the point if you're seriously a Top Critic film reviewer. The movie is clearly a parody, which is why the circumstances and the deaths are so contrived and accidental.

You bunch of pathetic losers would not be pleased with anything

Wanted to see why this guy thought the movie was so bad. I notice his reviews seem to reflect the politics of Rupert Murdoch, his master at the Post. (Yes, if you work for Murdoch, he's more than your boss because you have to surrender your soul to work there.) If you look at his other reviews, you'll see he generally dislikes movies that don't favorably showcase Sarah Palin, Guantanamo, Christianity, etc. I guess he hates the portrayal of the GOP base as likable if misunderstood for some reason here ... :-)
Hopefully, this guy will get less credence as time goes on and will eventually find his way to being a speech writer for Newt Gingrich.

i don't mind kevin smith's reviews (or really any negative/positive reviews to a film that is generally the opposite) but this is really stretching it; now he's just being stuck-up...

I guess you must hate most of Shakespeare's plays too if you dislike "contrived coincidences"!

Everyone needs to quit commenting. greensucksbluerules is just trolling and you're feeding said troll. We all know it was an awesome movie as well as the fact that everyone is entitled to their own opinion. If the critic didn't like it, oh well, it's his loss. You don't need to defend the movie to death because of it. let him say what he wants as long as you know what you do.

It seems as though some people *cough** Mr. Smith **cough** can't just laugh at a funny joke. It's stupid, but thats what makes it so funny. Some people just don;t understand how to laugh and what it takes to laugh. I thought this movie was great and this guy obviously doesn't. It's a genius premise and takes a dulled out genera and makes it interesting and funny. Dude just doesn't get it.

lil queef dont like stereotypes being broken!

Kyle needs to lighten up and take it as it is, a comedy, and a smart one, in that it takes stereotypes from other stupid and far less intelligent or funny films and takes a funny riff on them Thats more than you can ask for from modern day horrors. And have you forgotten, coincidences are a basis for humor at times. Like i said, Lighten up Kyle! And green sucks!!!

I'm glad I didn't listen to greensucksbluerules, this movie is hilarious!

Seriously, pretty much as good as Shaun of the Dead. Like an American version of that type of humor.

LOL, if this was a student film the creators deserve to be on the payroll of a major studio.
May 4 - 06:07 PM
agreed... well written and acted film. Effects were above SUPER 8 , super weird cgi quality so, yeah.. GREAT! I started reading this morons' critique and couldn't get passed the first 2 sentences without saying WHAT THE F** is he saying? and Hooked on Phonics was not his strongest attribute.

Ohhhhhhhh movie hipsters...

Essentially an inexperienced, uneducated film critic who could not comprehend the comical genius and clever bits.
