Pitch-perfect [parody] of how self-serious such documentaries can sometimes be.

7 Days in Hell, then, is the pre-ceremony bachelor party, a vulgar and ridiculous good time that's as crass and unpredictable as it is really bloody funny.
August 6, 2019
This is a truly wonderful romp.
August 6, 2019
7 Days in Hell is everything you expect it to be going in, but much, much better.
August 6, 2019
7 Days in Hell is so funny it makes me hope they saved 40 minutes of material so I can get a feature-length version on DVD.

Some might not be ready for more tennis humour after Wimbledon 2Day's madcap take on furry-ball thwacking, yet it's worth enduring one more rally for this loopy sports comedy.
August 6, 2019
7 Days in Hell is pitch perfect in aping every facet of controversy-minded docu-series, particularly that of ESPN's highly acclaimed 30 for 30.
August 6, 2019
As it stands, the film is undeniably hilarious.
August 6, 2019
This sort of sports documentary format, with its ridiculous elevation of athletic competition to a place of heightened significance, is ripe for this takedown.
August 6, 2019
It packs more laughs into its tight fifty minute running time than most big-screen comedy hits and is a pretty brilliant little one-off most of us probably didn't see coming.
August 6, 2019
Throughout the absurdities and the provocations, 7 Days in Hell never loses its intelligence, and importantly, it adheres closely to documentary techniques with an exquisite attention to detail that proves HBO spent real money on the project.
August 6, 2019
It's a creative take on sports documentaries and the bombastic nature in which commentators speak about historic games. And you don't even need to love tennis to appreciate it.
August 6, 2019
Jake Syzmanski and writer Murray Miller were able to produce a mockumentary that giddily pulses with a sense of absolute freedom.
August 6, 2019
The fact that the film is an unmitigated romp is not something that should be apologized for or excused away. Indeed, such gleeful and lively slices of conviviality that embrace frivolity should be celebrated.
August 6, 2019
Funny in its broader-than-the-net way and packed with attention-getting "interviewees," it should play quite well when it premieres.
August 6, 2019
Had this been boiled down to 20 minutes or even a five-minute Saturday Night Live sketch it might have been funny.

'7 Days in Hell' is a funny diversion, with some great moments. But like so many of the SNL sketches it resembles, it's too chummy with its targets to punch as hard as it should.

7 Days In Hell is something that will entertain you for 41 minutes. If you have time to kill this summer and are flipping channels, check it out.

Golf has its Caddyshack. Baseball has its Major League. And now tennis, another sport that some people find boring and that sometimes comes off as a wee bit pretentious, has 7 Days in Hell. Center Court may never be the same.

It's a bright and breezy 42 minutes. Samberg is obviously having the time of his life; Harington, having shed the weight of the Wall, looks years younger, and even HBO has a new spring in its step.
