Frankie Go Boom does have a lot of moments of shocking raunch. But every moment like that is coupled with a genuinely human interaction...
November 27, 2019
With absurd wackiness abounding, and as Ron Perlman opines, "The funniest script I've read in at least 25 years", 3, 2, 1. . .Frankie Go Boom is madcap zaniness at its best.

Frankie go meh.
December 18, 2016
An unusual -- and unusually joyous -- embattled siblings flick, flush with quirks and neat asides and insanely funny bits you barely saw coming.
November 1, 2012
Provided one submits to its base level of intentional ridiculousness, there's some wacky charm to be found in this low-budget comedy of fraternal bickering.
October 18, 2012
Though deliciously rude and crude, '3, 2, 1 ... Frankie Go Boom' possesses a surprisingly sweet heart.
October 16, 2012
Toxic brother drives so-so comedy about mortifying video.
October 15, 2012
... provides a few solid sitcom-style laughs before the bickering and mayhem become repetitive and the film simply runs out of gas.
October 12, 2012
It's unbearable to sit through at times, watching decent actors flounder with intentionally ridiculous material, working themselves into a lather to serve writer/director Jordan Roberts's clumsy sense of humor.
October 12, 2012
A sub-Apatovian farce that tries way too hard ...
October 11, 2012
A noisy stab at wacky wrongness that starts with reasonably plump possibility as a dispatch from the frontlines of viral video embarrassment hell.
October 11, 2012
A vibrantly vulgar comedy that never hangs around to admire its own cleverness.
October 11, 2012
Tragically unfunny, Frankie is occasionally elevated by some of its gifted and game cast, but the film's nasty, comedically incoherent script limits its potential.
October 11, 2012
Both actors somehow stay grounded despite all the shenanigans. Hunnam, in particular, is quite adept at playing against his movie-star looks.
October 11, 2012
Just like that cumbersome "3, 2, 1 ..." of the title, Roberts adds too many elements to nearly every scene of this insanely frenetic comedy.
October 11, 2012
The image of [Perlman] in makeup and a wig, painting his toenails, is a terribly easy joke, but it's the best one this otherwise abrasive comedy can manage.
October 9, 2012
No matter how many jokes about impotence, vomiting pigs, deviant movie stars and underground adult-entertainment you shove into a gross-out flick, there are few things worse than strained outrageousness.
October 9, 2012
Less inept than its worst-of-the-year title suggests, 3, 2, 1 . . . Frankie Go Boom nonetheless proves too ramshackle and aimless to ever achieve true absurdity.
October 9, 2012
The film never really goes soft, as Jordan Roberts never loses sight of the fact that these toxic nincompoops are authentically bad for one another.
April 24, 2012
Though riddled with credibility-straining coincidences and over-the-top humiliation, Jordan Roberts' Frankie Go Boom plays out with more charm than desperation.
