This unfortunately titled film has an offbeat charm that just about makes up for its short running time.

Despite the brief running time, audiences will likely lose interest before the film's speedy conclusion; turns out the most unexpected -- and entertaining -- thing about "Douchebag" is its title.

Writer/director Drake Doremus has created a funny movie where the humor comes from the nature of the characters rather than obvious comic setups.

As anthropological study, as a short-storylike glimpse into a character better observed from afar -- or through the lens of a jumpy digital video camera -- Douchebag is undeniably fascinating.

The most provocative thing about the DIY trifle Douchebag is its title, and even that doesn't amount to much.

It's a minimalist Sideways, not so much mumblecore as talkycore.

The title may be mildly provocative in its vulgarity, but the most striking feature of this movie is its dullness.

An unusually eventful mumblecore road flick, the no-budget slacker odyssey Douchebag belies its abrasive title with a soft touch for two wobbly souls.

Douchebag feels both rushed and way too slack, but the bigger problem is that the kind of characters and humor this movie traffics in can be found in a more compact, amusing package on the average FX show.

In its rushed, implausible moment of reckoning, Douchebag ends up validating the frat-boy credo: Bros before hos.

Dickler's acting debut is memorably repellent, even if the movie he's in -- a fitfully engaging story about two estranged brothers on a road trip -- often feels forced and unconvincing.

A clever DIY comedy that could be this year's Humpday for art house audiences in search of characters they recognize from their own lives.
