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.

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.
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?
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.
A mindless comedy where the blatant racial stereotypes are outnumbered only by the flatulence jokes.
Among the many minorities mocked are Muslims, but perhaps the people most insulted are white Southerners, who presumably are expected to embrace one whopping brain-dead metaphor.
There are henpecked-husband jokes, gay jokes, turd humor, mispronounced Iraq war terms, guys asking "Who farted?" and lots more Crackel Barrel comedy.
If you've read this far and still want to see Delta Farce, just be warned. Things tend to get ugly, even when nothing blows up.
Dropping quietly into theaters like a sneak attack on brain cells and good taste, C.B. Harding's rickety vehicle for Blue Collar Comedy is among the first films to mine the endless War on Terror for laughs.
What it really boils down to is whether you're a fan of Larry the Cable Guy. If so, you'll (I would hope) realize you're watching a pretty stupid comedy but will laugh in the appropriate parts.
Whatever your pet sensitivity -- the military, rednecks, gays, Mexicans -- this movie is an equal-opportunity denigrator.
War in Iraq isn't funny -- neither is this movie.
Larry the Cable Guy is not and has never been and never will be funny. The sooner everyone realizes this, the faster his movie career with go away.
Hey, it's meant to be a stupid comedy, so slam it as much as you wish! It had me laughing. It's as good as the Three Amigos and Machete, which I consider to be great comedies. There's a fair amount of Mexican, gay, military and toilet jokes in this Farce. I'm a fan of Larry the Cable Guy, though he shares the lead with the two other guys Bill Engvall and DJ Qualls.. The movie moves along at a nice pace. It's great seeing Danny Trejo as the funny badguy Carlos Santana. Nobody really gets hurt in this. I wish Lisa Lampanelli had more screen time as the nagging wife. The songs and musical score are actually quite good. It was fun overall, and I'd watch it again.
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.
does not deserve a review
So is sooo bad, really poor. I swear its a complete waste of time and money. It looks cheap, its not in the least bit funny, the cast is d-list if that and the story is ripped from 'The Three Amigo's' how the hell they got Keith David and Danny Trejo is beyond belief, they must have been bored.
