Formula drawing room comedy that has everybody reacting to a thing, whatever the thing happens to be in whatever story (Guess what the thing is in this movie? Go on, try it, you might get lucky), only this comedy adds Pesci as his trademark mob hitman. It gets old faster than it should've as Pesci's role is underwritten, but then so is the entire effort.

The most appropriately titled comedy ever... you get exactly what it says. Here we have a fun, yet average, comedy full of dark humor and slapstick chaos. Very little of this film will remain with you for long, but it is a pretty enjoyable viewing experience... just not, ultimately, that memorable.

It was good for one view. I loved Joe Pesci in this movie. The rest of the characters are pretty dumb. You'll know whether you want to watch this within the first few minutes.

A really funny film. Joe Pesci is really funn in this film. It really isnt his best work but it still is a good laugh.

A truly wicked black comedy, this film is about as black as it gets yet remains absolutely hilarious.

bought this simply because it had Joe Pesci in it. very disappointed in this film. it was annoying with the over the top bad acting and childlike way the actors react to things, like screaming each time a head is seen.
Joe was the only good point about the film. he made the others look like thet were drama school pupils.

A mobster gets his duffel bag full of decapitated heads mixed up with another bag at a airport. He then goes after the guy that has his bag chasing down they guy that grabbed it accidentally at the airport and get the heads back beacuse if he don't his head will be the next one in the bag. Very funny comedy with an excellent cast who had me laughing the whole way through the movie. Joe Pesci was super funny and David Spade was great too and had me laughing quite a bit too. And it is not just them two the whole cast was funny and they made what was a somewhat dumb story into a hillarious comedy.

I saw this one when it came out. I thought it was a decent flick, nothing to great, but not that bad. I've seen far worst comedies than this. I thought that the film had some decent comedic bits here and there, but nothing to really make it stand out. This is really a decent little comedy, one that is mildly funny. Joe Pesci is pretty good, and without him in the film, this would have been a total dud. However, this is enjoyable enough to watch at least once. As a whole, there are far better comedies out there, than this, but for the most part, this one does have a few good laughs here and there. The film had potential to being a memorable comedy, and I think it's quite a shame because the idea the film was very interesting. I think it's too bad that they didn't focus more on the quality of the jokes. The jokes are at times lacking, and don't stand out. I don't see the film as a total waste of time, more like a mindless comedic viewing experience that's quite forgettable. 8 Heads in a Duffel Bag is a decent film to watch. I found the film quite enjoyable but this is not a film I would watch again. The gags like I said could have been improved on, but some do make you chuckle. In the end it's a shame they couldn't have thought of better material to add to its interesting premise. A decent comedy that has a few decent laughs and far from bad as what many critics have said.

that just sounds gross, but intriguing

It may lack a certain farcical flair but it has enough dark humor to keep things going.

Joe Pesci is always my favorite, and Dianne Canon is still funny.

I guess I just like light-hearted screwball comedies more than the next guy. Who doesn't love Joe Pesci?

It great that you CAN make a movie about decapitated human heads that actually avoids being violent or scary.

I cannot for the life of me figure out why this is rated so terribly. It's entertaining, humorous, raunchy, but still has an old-timey slapstick feel to it. Not a masterpiece, but very watchable.

This is movie is light hearted full of laughs and humorous situations. I really enjoyed it. Most of the cast is small names but they all do well especially Joe Peci, who is perfect in his role and David Spade who adds a lot of laughs for a small amount of camera time he has. I recommend this to anyone who likes Weekend at Bernie's type humor.

I don't know why some people saw this as a stupid comedy. I really love it. It's like half dark comedy and half screwball comedy. The story is good, although it's not a new one. The actors are good too, they're all very funny. I highly recommend this movie, even if no one else will.
