"Addicted to Fresno" is such a mean-spirited, dull and silly movie that it buries its talented cast under the weight of a horrendous script that they can't possibly redeem.
The laughs are mild, but at least some exist.
"Addicted to Fresno" is one of those comedies that seem not to care whether you laugh. Parts of it seem openly hostile to the idea.
Strong lead performances and an energetic supporting cast elevate the uneven material.
Beyond a few nice closing emotional beats, the whole enterprise plays too desperate and slapdash to whip up the goodwill required to sell such thin, far-fetched material.
A mean-spirited farce whose strenuous bad taste seldom translates into actual laughs.
Judy Greer and Natasha Lyonne have great chemistry ... but the plot is thin and meanders about ...
Greer's character ultimately gives the audience too little to root for.
In Addicted to Fresno, it feels like the film's action relies on the audience rooting for Greer's character, but Babbit's characterisation doesn't offer much to root for.
Perhaps in other hands Fresno could have been a hilarious dark comedy , but instead Jamie Babbit and Karey Dornetto have made a chronically unfunny farce, harsh and offensive in its tone, inexcusably laughing at those who are worse off than themselves.
The colour is off and the setting is snark but the high energy levels and great performances win you over.
Naff jokes about rape, the Holocaust, and the wretchedness of Fresno leave laughter in short supply as the shrieky action pinballs self-consciously from barmitzvahs to pet cemeteries.
