It's not the diversion from source material that bothers me; it's the way in which the diversions are bland, listless, annoyingly familiar, and patently unengaging.

Just a voyeuristic excuse to watch people die in different ways.

Will probably deserve a Darwin Award itself after dying quietly at the box office and thus strengthening the art of filmmaking in general.

If writer/director Finn Taylor could have made up his mind about the movie he was making, it would have held together better.

Taylor and his friends seem to be having a great time but could have let the audience in on the joke.

Sports too many formulaic weaknesses of mainstream laffers while straining for an indie cred that hitherto came naturally to writer-director Finn Taylor.

Writer/ director Finn Taylor's problem is that he wrote a painfully weak script, mostly wasting both acting talent and funny stories in the process.
| Original Score: 62/100

The humor dissipates as we watch one weird death after another.

A delightful, winning tribute to those annual kudos given to people who died from sheer stupidity, thereby improving the gene pool.

While the film has some funky flaws, it's a terrific satire and is downright hilarious.
