I may be one of the few that loved this movie, but it was a blast, and I don't have any fear saying that.

Rockwell is the film's only consistently amusing presence.

Classic underdog vs smug establishment stuff, you might think. But it's all played out in puke-slathered anti-comedy sketches better suited to no-budget YouTube videos than a multimillion-dollar film.

This deliberately amateurish, self-indulgent effort manages to be odd while rarely remembering to be funny.

The presence of Flight of the Conchords star Jemaine Clement is the main point of interest in this so-so comedy...

Runs out of ideas after 20 minutes.

Gentlemen Broncos is a movie that sets out to be so bad it's good, like an Edward D. Wood movie. But it ends up so slow-paced, unfunny and supercilious that it's just mind-numbingly terrible.

Maybe it's time for Hess to go back to Napoleon Dynamite for a sequel. Although, on second thoughts, perhaps he should leave well alone.

Veers from hilarious to unwatchable.

It's all an excuse for Hess to populate his small-town America with a series of off-the-scale oddballs and gross-out humour. The whole premise would be far better if it didn't seem quite so self-indulgent.

Daily Telegraph (UK)

The film-within-a-film starring Sam Rockwell tanks quite badly, but Hess's affection for fantasy kitsch shines through brightly enough to generate real feeling.

This latest from writer-director Jared Hess is another unsavoury stew of kitsch juvenilia that furthers the rot that set in between his first two films...

I feel it is my duty to warn fans of Jared Hess's teen comedy Napoleon Dynamite that they will find nothing to please them here.

Hess once again trains his camera on misfit adolescents, mocking the obsessions of sci-fi geeks with genuine affection and gentle humour that leads to an unsurprisingly heart-warming pay-off.

Slight and occasionally clunking, it wins through by its sheer good nature and some particularly strong playing.

A cult classic in the making, thanks to some wonderful dialogue and a pair of terrific comic performances from Jemaine Clement and Sam Rockwell.

It's difficult to pick up on a majority of the nightmarish qualities that were promised in the initial wave of response.

You can't root for [the characters] while laughing at the work they hold dear -- it just doesn't go both ways.

The question isn't why was Gentlemen Broncos abruptly pulled from theaters. How in the world did the movie even get that far?

At one level, it is pretty bad. Then, on the other level, it is downright horrible. Unless you're an entertainment masochist, neither is very much fun.
