If there was more vision on the front end, with more thought put into shot composition and less adherence to trendy, attention-deficit filmmaking, Weirdsville might have been an innovative indie gem

Neither as funny nor as serious as it ought to be.

Chainmailed flail-wielding midgets chasing Satanists chasing druggies - Allan Moyle has gone for the grown-up panto approach.

It's wacky, it's zany, it's loopy, it's freaky, it's daffy - but alas, not the most important one, which is "funny".

Anarchic and low budget, make sure you take along your bong.

Allan Moyle's stoner heist movie is a meandering dud.

It's pretty amusing stuff - though it could have been a lot funnier if they had resisted the temptation to shoehorn in quite so many plot twists.

A pleasingly gonzo black comedy pitched somewhere between Rosencrantz And Guildenstern Are Dead Stoned and Dude, Where's My Crack?

A quirky, amusing caper that shouldn't work, but somehow does.

Weirdsville is an enjoyable screwball crime thriller with a witty script, inventive direction and superb comic performances.

Director Allan Moyle travels a quirky road too often trod by aspirant indie pics.

The script has the substance and the slacker leads have the chemistry, but the execution fumbles the tourniquet, failing to find any rich vein of wackiness.

The paper-thin characters make it feel less like a rounded feature and more like a TV pilot with the promise of more adventures to come.

Funny, well-acted nonsense. The best kind of quirkiness.

... it's piffle, but reasonably entertaining piffle, which ain't nothin' to sneeze at nowadays.

I was laughing well into the film's third act, when most films stop being funny.

I kept wishing for a rewrite that sent the Satanists packing and pulled the love story hiding within Wennekers' script to the fore.

Half-funny and half-obvious, Weirdsville gets a little tiresomely silly, but Bentley still has a glare that burns through metal, and his rapport with Speedman is agreeable.
