Adam's Apples Reviews

May 11, 2007
This oddball story is more than a one-joke concept. Its characters are sometimes cruel, sometimes sweet, but always recognizably human.

Jensen is an accomplished screenwriter with a knack for developing people amid comic nonsense.

The movie is all surface, loudly clamoring for attention and then losing its voice.

Some will see this as a movie about how we're all God's children. I saw only the misanthropic fulminations of Jensen's runaway ego.

Its screenplay attempts to blend outrageous black humor with biblical allegory in an ultimately unsuccessful fashion.

Smart-aleck comedy and spirituality aren't incompatible, but in Adam's Apples they cancel each other out.

I'm sure there's a decent black comedy in the material, but Adam's Apples, by Danish director Anders Thomas Jensen, isn't it.

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

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.
