Manages to keep up a full head of steam despite repeating the same essential jokes over and over again.

he sort of thing that will probably become a staple on Comedy Central in about five years, resting comfortably alongside such snoozers as "Once Upon A Crime" and "Who's Harry Crumb"...

In going out of their way to make the characters shocking and graceless, the filmmakers forgot that it's necessary for the audience to enjoy spending time with the characters.

Mona is a dreary crash of malapropisms and slapstick maimings wrapped very loosely around a murder mystery.

Disappointingly tame (and often lame) comedy that consistently misses opportunities to do something clever or inventive.

A backwoods slapstick that lacks the anarchy needed for true farce.

My problem was that I didn't care who killed Mona Dearly, or why.

There are a couple of funny lines, and the cast is game, but it just doesn't work.

A pretty ramshackle affair...still, it gets where it's going and delivers some dark humor in the process.

Either they had something on [Nick Gomez] or he needed the money.

The film is monumentally minor -- you'll hardly remember you saw it a week later.
