Strangers With Candy

Critics Consensus

Occasionally funny, but little more than a jumbled, overextended episode of the TV show. Still, Candy devotees won't be disappointed.

    Hilarious in a Tracy Ulman kind of way...only better. I laughed often and heartily at this over-the-top, crazy comedy.

    Strangers With Candy is a decent comedy. The film boasts a decent cast as well. Strangers With Candy has some laughs here and there, but as a good comedy, it never succeeds at being anything other than decent. I felt that the films weakness was that it tried to hard at making you laugh, for me a comedy should be effortless at making you laugh. Strangers With Candy is funny, but at times the jokes fall flat and are boring. The film does make you laugh, but by the films end, you realize that this film could have much better. There was a good cast of comedic talent at work here, and I'm actually quite surprised that this was the best they could do. The results are decent and there is nothing really great about the film. I thought that the film was fairly forgettable, and is the type of film that you need to see only once. This is not a film that demands repeated viewings. Stephen Colbert was the funniest aspect of this film, and he definitely made the film a bit more watchable. But like I said, the film is decent and has a few good laughs, but the film takes its time to build up, and keep the laughs moving along. This film had so much potential, however half the way it's very boring. Worth watching once, and you can forget about it, there's nothing really effective at work. This is simply a decent film that could have been much better than this.

    Funny and a good film to watch, Strangers With Candy, however presents a weak script, despire the great gags and the plot. Amy Sedaris, too, help a lot the sucess and the comedy of the film.
