Critic Reviews for Folks!
The film's appeal will depend largely on whether you feel like laughing at senile dementia and automobile accidents.May 4, 2014 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
[Director Kotcheff] treats material that might have been effective as dark, nightmare comedy as something bright, bouncy and frivolous, an approach that kills all the laughs and turns shock into mere tastelessness.May 4, 2014 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
Klane has written this one as less of a slow burn, going instead for obnoxiously stunt-filled, madcap farce, all the way to the high-concept-reinforcing title exclamation point.May 4, 2014 | Full Review…

Masquerading as a commentary on the greedy '80s, this is clearly the sort of moronic comedy beloved of the Weekend at Bernie's team of Kotcheff and writer Robert Klane.January 26, 2006 | Full Review…

Audience Reviews for Folks!
Oct 21, 2010A horribly cheesy, cliche "comedy" that asks us to find humor in a mean-spirited, depressing story about an elderly couple begging their son to murder them on a count of the fact that they just can't stand living in pain anymore.Brandon W Super Reviewer
Jul 28, 2010While it had it's shares of laughs, the rest of the film kind of just passed on by like unwanted in-laws during Christmas vacation.Joseph E Super Reviewer
May 10, 2007It's been a long time since I've seen this, but as I recall the situational comedy is downright painful to watch!Valerie G Super Reviewer
Dec 05, 2006Good disaster comedy of Tom Selleck, <i>sans</i> moustache, loses not only his sanity, but also one ear, one eye, a couple of toes and a testicle.Dean M Super Reviewer
