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.

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.

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.

the celebration of pure imagination without the baggage of a value judgment to cloud the issue

A deeply weird movie that bears no signs of any interference from any Hollywood types. For better or worse, this is what comes out of Hess' brain when he's left to his own devices.

Where do you go after rocket-propelled deer statuary, cyclops warriors in golf carts, and Mike White with a dubbed Irish accent?

The deliberately low-rent cheesiness of the special effects, as well as the childish grossness of the humor, give "Gentlemen Broncos" a distinctive and original flavor.

An uneven comedy that gets high scores for the amount of laughs it does provide. My assessment? Normal is overrated.

October 30, 2009
A juvenile, crass and silly mess that's occasionally irritating to watch, intermittingly funny and over-the-top, but nonetheless amusing and wildly imaginative. It's best enjoyed with a group of friends late at night while checking your brain at the door.
Full Review | Original Score: 6.25/10
October 29, 2009
Its quirkiness preceding and very nearly swallowing it whole, Gentlemen Broncos is less warped than it thinks it is yet still provides enough bizarre, painstakingly designed schlock to tickle the willing.

October 28, 2009
This is personal filmmaking, surveying the private emotions that generally embarrass people or make us feel out of step -- a daring proposition in an era that frantically insists upon marketable conformity.

The best part is Jemaine Clement as Benjamin's grandiose genre hero, Dr. Ronald Chevalier. Even if you love him on Flight of the Conchords, you'll be unprepared for his genius -- and charisma.

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
May 3, 2010
This deliberately amateurish, self-indulgent effort manages to be odd while rarely remembering to be funny.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

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