A ribald flood of comic bliss.

Okay starring vehicle for Norm MacDonald, but you'd think he could do better.
| Original Score: 3/5

: "Saturday Night Live" alum Norm Macdonald's feature debut ain't great, but he is.

Attempts to carry on the comedic-vengeance tradition, with arguably mixed results.

Occasionally funny, but all too often driven by the juvenile conviction that anything even remotely connected with homosexuality is riotously funny...
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

The outrageousness isn't consistently sustained, and the pic tends to peter out somewhere around the two thirds mark.

Why does Hollywood think that everyone who ever appeared on "Saturday Night Live" deserves a film career as a reward? What's the excuse for showcasing Norm Macdonald, a third-rate Dennis Miller knockoff whose delivery is slower than Priority Mail?

Tasteless? Oh, yeah.

...proves that a comedy doesn't need an R rating to be crude, rude, or stupid. Even an innocent PG-13 can do the trick.

A tone-deaf, scattershot and dispiritingly cheesy affair with more groans than laughs.
Brian Webster

The jokes just aren't funny, and Macdonald's sardonic, 'non-acting' style of acting quickly becomes tiresome.
