The film wants to be an edgy indie-comedy, but proves to be nothing more than a middle of the road picture with more misses than hits.

Despite a few smiles, "Hamlet 2" is a slow slog to the final curtain.

High school theater spoof lacks some spark.

Moments of demented inspiration as the ridiculously catchy ditty 'Rock Me Sexy Jesus' are few and far between.

Coogan is a master at playing jerks, but Dana is too silly, too stupid, and too unappealing to enlist us on his side.

Oddly, what's supposed to be a great comedy about a bad play is in fact a bad comedy about a play that looks pretty frigging amazing

I laughed enough while I watched it, but as I write this review, I realize how shabby it really is. And Marschz is annoying.

There are several pieces of vulgar language in the film that some viewers might find objectionable. I found them neither objectionable nor particularly funny. In fact, that sums up how I felt about the entire film.

Witless spoof on Hamlet that is more irritating than funny.

Collapses, despite a game and talented cast, and a brilliant concept. Well, concepts don't make movies.

[It] was beaten to the punch by Christopher Guest's Waiting for Guffman, which despite its off-the-cuff nature actually gets these people, feels more dangerous, and has way better songs.

Let's just call Hamlet 2 Waiting for Guffaws, and be done with it. Sadly, said laughter rarely comes, if at all

Hamlet 2 star Steve Coogan told HollywoodChicago.com: "It did make me nervous to play Jesus. I wondered whether the director was just trying to be provocative to annoy Christians or if it was just funny."

Constructed from leftovers.

A shoddy and indulgent mass of bits from other movies with a shapeless, shameless performance by British comedic actor Steve Coogan as its unfixed center.
