This is the first movie in years to challenge Ed Wood's Plan Nine From Outer Space for the title 'worst movie ever.'

There will be better movies playing in the same theater, even if it is a duplex, but on the other hand there is something to be said for goofiness without apology by broken lizards who just wanna have fun.

Does the world really need a comic slasher movie? Or, to be more precise, does it need another failed attempt at one?

This slasher/comedy isn't funny or entertaining.

...no forward momentum, no real cohesion between its myriad caricatures/victims, and (most importantly) a distressingly low batting average where the yuks are concerned.

This is both a sloppy mystery, with meaningless clues everywhere, and a tedious comedy, with jokes that seem to date from before Scream turned satirizing horror movies into a cottage industry.
| Original Score: 1/4

There's a problem with spoofs of crappy horror comedy flicks: in order to get to the spoof comedy, the audience still has to wade through the crappy horror flick.

Broken Lizard's Club Dread spoofs a genre already spoofed out, the slasher film, and does it badly

Even if it doesn't really succeed as a thriller or a comedy, the film isn't simply a hack-job either.

Like the unkillable villain Broken Lizard parodies, the guys don't seem to realize when it's time to lay themselves to rest.

We realize it's a spoof of bad movies. But does a satire of bad movies need to be bad, too?

The Broken Lizard quintet follows its quintessential cult-comedy classic "Super Troopers" with something like "Ten Little Indians" interpreted by five big imbeciles - a slasher parody three "Screams" and three "Scary Movies" too late.

Not so much as a movie as a 'Girls Gone Wild' video with the occasional slasher murder thrown in for fun.

Only the ending of Club Dread, where the villain keeps coming back for more, shows any spark of imagination or wit. The rest of the time, things are pretty dull.
