Designed to elicit as many gasps as laughs, Anders Thomas Jensen's pitch-black comedy offers an audaciously skewed take on good vs. evil.

March 16, 2007
Peculiar but oddly winsome fable about the spiritual journeys of two diametrically opposed characters.

Jensen's film is absolutely fearless. Much like Borat, this one brazenly pushes buttons and shatters taboos most other dark comedies avoid like the plague.

For all its roughhouse antics, Adam's Apples is almost improbably sweet: a rude comedy that the devout and heathen alike can hold to their breasts.

A noxious, flippant mix of snark and biblical allegory.
March 6, 2007
With the most bizarre characters we have seen in film for quite some time, this strange comedy leaves the viewer constantly off- balance.

Features some nice humor, dry as an Empire apple left to wither and brown at room temperature, its juice sucked out but still pleasant to the taste.

Go-to screenwriter for the Dogma 95 collective, Danish writer-director Anders Thomas Jensen hits a decidedly sour note with Adam's Apples.

I just wasn't, it turns out, the ideal audience for man's allegorical way of dealing with the demonic weightiness of the world.

August 6, 2006
An odd, blacker-than-black comedy that's almost impossible to describe.

Adam ends up learning a lot of important life lessons, but this isn't sappy storytelling.
June 12, 2006
Jensen doesn't pretend it's cute and/or harmless -- there's a fascinating ambiguity to the happy fantasy laid over the misery and failure.
January 22, 2006
We have a comedy black enough to make even the most jaded viewer cringe a little.
