The only way this movie might work would be as a sad portrait of mental illness.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

It becomes increasingly difficult to care one way or another about characters who act like they have undergone frontal lobotomies.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

I think this film was already made, and it was called Napoleon Dynamite.

Long story short: Although I didn't care for Eagle vs. Shark, I'd be eager to see whatever [director] Cohen makes next.

Eagle vs. Shark is nothing more and nothing less than a romantic, New Zealand variant of Napoleon Dynamite.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
July 15, 2007
Eagle vs Shark is self-consciously odd and only wants to hold up its protagonists as objects of derision.
Full Review | Original Score: C

As likeable as the movie was, I just didn't find it as funny as I thought I would.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

Jarrod and Horsley, odd as they are as screen subjects, undeniably make an indelible impression, but result is still innocuously mild and inconsequential.
September 12, 2007
A romantic comedy where one of the participants treats the other like crap.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
June 22, 2007
Sorely lacks is a genuine sense of humanity.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
July 6, 2007
Eagle vs. Shark might have seemed amusingly original, albeit in a self-consciously quirky, indie-movie kind of way, if Napoleon Dynamite didn't already exist.
Full Review | Original Score: C-
July 19, 2007
Though the result is desperately trendy, it's also seriously short on innovation, coasting mostly on the fumes of previous, and better, indie-fare.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
August 17, 2007
The film wants to be your cuddly, quirky friend, and makes you feel bad for not returning the affection.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Neither human nor beast will find this amusing.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
June 22, 2007
A disturbing film trying to diguise itself as a quirky romantic comedy. There are indeed some laugh-out-loud moments; unfortunately most of the laughs are aimed at -- not with -- the misfits.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

It becomes apparent early on that excessive teenage eccentricity and terminal self-delusion isn't quite as cute in the adult male and absent father.
Full Review | Original Score: C+
June 23, 2007
...a perfect example of manufactured tweeness, a film desperate to be quirky and offbeat but which just doesn't get it...
Full Review | Original Score: D
December 21, 2007
A paean film to lonely misfits that follows along the same tracks as "Napoleon Dynamite," and relies entirely on being a charmer.
Full Review | Original Score: C-
January 8, 2008
...mostly tedious and depressing, its eighty-eight minutes going by in about eight hours.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
June 14, 2007
Cringe-inducing comedy by New Zealander Taika Waititi more or less exemplifies the divide currently dictating taste in movie comedy, a schism reducible to a single question: Do you want to laugh with people, or at them?
