Delta Farce 2007

Delta Farce

Critics Consensus

Too afraid to be a real satire of the Iraq War, Delta Farce instead devolves into a reprehensible, unfunny mix of slapstick, gay panic, and flatulence jokes.

Movie Info

Three buddies (Larry the Cable Guy, Bill Engvall, D.J. Qualls) set out on a relaxing weekend of drinking and target practice, when a sergeant (Keith David) mistakes them for Army Reservists. The three men are deployed to Iraq, but a premature ejection lands them in Mexico. Believing they are in the Middle East, the bogus soldiers save a village and become local heroes, until a karaoke-loving warlord decides to strike back.

Critic Reviews for Delta Farce

All Critics (44) | Top Critics (16) | Fresh (2) | Rotten (42)

  • Is it funny? Not really. All of its subversive potential is wasted on [director] Harding, and even the straight-ahead farce is joyless.

  • If ribbing the U.S. armed forces was considered unpatriotic after 9/11, then Delta Farce proves that discussion of the Iraq War has now officially jumped the shark.

    May 19, 2007 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • Here's a sobering thought: If every war gets the comedy it deserves, could Delta Farce, a strenuously unfunny Three Amigos knockoff, be our M*A*S*H?

    May 16, 2007 | Rating: D- | Full Review…
  • As morale boosters go, Larry the Cable Guy is no Bob Hope, and it's hard to reconcile the contradiction of an overtly tasteless movie that doesn't want to offend the troops.

    May 15, 2007 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • Like Paths Of Glory, Apocalypse Now, and Platoon, Delta Farce is a difficult, harrowing work offering little relief or humor. Unlike those movies, though, Delta Farce is supposed to be funny.

    May 15, 2007 | Rating: D- | Full Review…
  • A mindless comedy where the blatant racial stereotypes are outnumbered only by the flatulence jokes.

Audience Reviews for Delta Farce

    Delta Farce has got to be the most awful, shallow, poorly constructed comedy film ever made. This is a film that makes every Pauly Shore film look like classics by comparison. You know right from the start that the cast for this horrid train wreck will not be good when you have Larry The Cable Guy, a comedian who's become so unfunny, so quickly that people now realize how primitive his style of comedy was. With Delta Farce, the filmmakers basically took, Larry The Cable Guy's one trick comedy routine and made an hour and a half long minute out of it. Truly original. Sounds like something that Pauly Shore did with every one of his films, at least no matter how bad the films were; he did manage to give me a few chuckles. But with Larry The Cable Guy, he's just too painful to watch on screen. I don't like his work, and I think he should retire from the comedy business. The guy was maybe funny for a year or so, but now he's yet another pointless comedian. Delta Farce is a painful comedy that is so poorly written and acted that you wonder how this trash could be green lit and shown in theatres. Oh well, they'll market anything to make a quick buck.

    Danny Trejo playing a Mexican gang leader named "Carlos Santana"?. Hilarious.

    This movie got some bad reviews, personally I did not mind it. I thought the storyline was great. The idea that these guys thought they were in Iraq when they were really in mexico really cracked me up. Unfortunatley when they found out they really were in mexico and actually had a real problem on there hands it just seemed like a war movie with a bunch of bad acting. This movie is fun and had a great idea going for it but it should of kept to the guys simply thinking they were in Iraq the entire time and finishing the entire mission by pure mistake. The movie suffers from writing. The actors themselves was pretty good. For many this movie will be either be pass or fail. For me, it's a C. If I was in the right mood I could enjoy it but it's not something I will buy or watch many times.
