January 1, 2000
The movie has a radical premise ... but pitches it at the level of a very bad sketch on Saturday Night Live.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
January 1, 2000
As a satire, Cecil B. Demented is uninspired, and, as a motion picture, it's unfunny, charmless, and amateurish.

The film merely stumbles from one scene to the next with little continuity and little invention.

Appears to have been written and directed by a grade-school dropout snorting airplane glue.

Cecil ... is far from demented enough.

Barely coherent mishmash.

If you're under 25 and believe in your cute rebel-'til-I-die heart that indie cinema is inherently True ****ing Art that gives the finger to The Man in Hollywood, then Cecil B. Demented may be your masturbatory fantasy.
January 1, 2000
The film certainly seems to have the right humorous intentions. Yet, just as is the case with many such extremist groups, it completely bungles the execution of its plan.

There is so little difference between DeMented's point of view and Waters' that one has to wonder what the point was in creating a fictional character.

January 1, 2000
Hamstrung by a script that is too often smug, obvious and self-important -- all qualities that Waters used to lampoon mercilessly.
January 1, 2000
Waters' outlaw analyses of pop culture, always a crucial part of his films, have now started to consume them.
