When the movie is over and nothing has actually happened, nor any genuine laughs produced, you're liable to feel like you've been whipped, too.

After just 30 minutes of "Whipped," you either want to hose down the screen with Lysol or dip yourself in bleach. It's that offensive, that rotten, and it easily stands as the worst film in years.

There has to be something -- anything -- redeemable about the men being ridiculed, and these numskulls are nothing but insufferable.

The dirty talk is so painfully forced and emphatic it lacks any comic spontaneity.

Ugly. And unpleasant. And clueless on a grand scale.

Breaks new ground both as an abominable enterprise in guy-talk and as no-budget hackwork.

By the end of this mercifully brief (82 minutes!) saga, everything, and everyone, has been reduced to the lowest common denominator.

Its soul is ugly and what little brains it has are shrink-wrapped in bile.

January 1, 2000
Despite the contemporary mating game slang that's scattered throughout the production, the film isn't as sharp or funny as it could have been.

Fails miserably at every turn.

[Cohen's] real cynicism could be his view that no audience is intelligent enough to fathom a film of any appreciable subtlety.

Hang out at a frat house or sports bar, and you can hear this kind of talk for free.
