Year One Reviews

Stretched painfully thin to feature length, it's a concept that's gestated for 34 years but hasn't evolved a microbe. It also proves that the Harold Ramis of '09 has nothing on the Harold Ramis of '75.

Dudley Moore once made a pretty forgettable comedy giving various well-worn bible stories a light irony wash by reacting to them with the skepticism and confusion a person of today might. Year One is basically that, but dumber.

From its ill-concieved concept to its timing-free chemistry and embarrassingly-bad characterisations, Year One is a major misfire in every respect.

a lazy excrescence of a film. Crude, sloppy, flat, and singularly uninspired, its only redeeming virtue is proving that Michael Cera is capable of rising above even this abominable material

Only big fans of Cera and Black need catch this film, and even then, it's far from a must-see.

What's even more depressing than the never-ending stream of sub-sixth-grade toilet humor is the sad fact that Year One is helmed and co-produced by two of the best laughmeisters in the business.

Not everything Judd Apatow touches is gold.

Creatively it's a giant step backwards, with Jack Black and Michael Cera playing to the kids as inept hunter-gatherers who stumble across various Old Testament characters.

The problem is not the historicity, or lack thereof, in a comedy, but the uneven pace of the humor.

Producer Judd Apatow has gone from comedy gourmand to McDonald-izing in four years. And when in doubt, director Harold Ramis makes Jack Black eat his own feces and Michael Cera pee in his own mouth. Yes, this is at the level of YouTube monkey comedy.

This one is destined to take its place alongside films like Evan Almighty and Wholly Moses!.

If there's anything sadder than an unfunny comedy, it's an unfunny comedy that tacks on an equally unfunny blooper reel over the closing credits.

[Year One] feels lazy: There's no cheap joke Mr. Ramis and company didn't go for, no gag-worthy gag they didn't include.

If there is any justice in the world, there will never be a Year Two.

... a near-total disappointment... it never manages to sustain any momentum from joke to joke or scene to scene or even shot to shot at times.

Even more embarrassing considering the talent involved. Where art thou Monty Python?

The film is lumpy and self-conscious, the dialogue not very witty.
