Critic Reviews

  • Well, at least someone is trying to emulate the Farrelly brothers -- except "Knucklehead," director Michael W. Watkins' half-assed, halfhearted attempt to copy the Farrellys' out-there style is missing both their jackassical riffs and their heart. More...
  • World Wrestling Entertainment continues its effort to meld violent sport with gooey, throwback family comedy in the claptrap road movie Knucklehead. More...
  • Knucklehead's candy corn heart and shameless predictability are almost touching in their obliviousness to anything that's happened in movies in recent decades. Cute orphans? Really? More...
  • A schmaltzy family comedy that won't pass the smell test for kids, parents, or even stoner second cousins. More...
  • Those multi-media moguls at World Wrestling Entertainment haven't quite got the hang of this "family friendly" turn they've taken with their motion picture division. More...
  • A distinctly shameless and shoddily made family comedy, this WWE production for wrestler Big Show turns an already saccharine plot into a toxic, fart-laden piledriver. More...
  • Wight is appealing, but let's hope he gets better opportunities than this. More...
  • The ho-hum premise picks up steam as the goofy humor escalates during the course of this bumpy road movie. Kicking off with a synagogue showdown with the infamous Kosher Killer, and later fearsome female sidebars including sisters of mercy who nun up. More...
  • The perfect follow-up to "Jackass" if only because it's equally moronic, although in this case, it's not even remotely funny. More...
  • If a WWE-produced film can't get squared-circle action right, what can be expected of it? More...
