Not as out-and-out funny as it should be nor as emotionally poignant as it could be...
August 24, 2018
The film's direction isn't always confident - there are baggy sections, and it's rarely deeply moving - but it is consistently funny.
August 20, 2014
...a bitterly dark comedy whose aim is uncomfortably true.

Here, Williams has a chance to do some of the most integral, gentle and praiseworthy acting of his career.

... This voyage through the moral maze is more entertaining and whisper it quietly, more profound, than most.
September 29, 2010
Goldthwait has given it a title that will make some shy away. But don't. It's a comedy about the particularly American capacity to create legends out of the dead, and it's sharper than most.

Beware that poster, with its jolly red writing and Mork from Ork's face thereon. This is not the Robin Williams of Old Dogs and License To Wed.
September 27, 2010
A comedy of quite astonishing blackness.
September 27, 2010
Writer/director Bobcat Goldthwait can't quite manage to bring things to a satisfying conclusion, but he's good enough at weaving the freakishly perverse into the everyday without the results seeming too forced.
September 24, 2010
Goldthwait's pacing is uncertain, and his humour is frequently "off", but the sense of risky provocation is compelling.
September 24, 2010
We can't wait to see what Goldthwait does next.
September 24, 2010
It's good to see Williams trying something darker than usual, but it's a pity the whimsy is laid on so thick.
September 24, 2010
Sadly, the ending seems unsatisfying but the journey there is a funny one.
September 23, 2010
Williams keeps his head above water, and a giddy climax recuperates some of the original energy -- enough, at least, to make this director's next project one worth rooting for anew.
September 23, 2010
This film is bold and provocative, but it's weak at the core. It is the weakness of an old dog trying desperately to learn new tricks.
September 23, 2010
It's the most daring black comedy of the year, and I admire its willingness to be not only vicious, but downright un-American.
September 23, 2010
What threatens to be the World's Greatest Dud proves anything but.
September 23, 2010
The cinematography and some of the performances are not stellar, but Goldthwait's script is extraordinary, examining the choices we make between surviving and really living.
