[A] woefully miscalculated, distressingly unfunny dark comedy in the Grifters mold.

Ramis might have been onto something had he been able to include less ice and more harvest.

Anyone expecting laughs from this dark holiday comedy will be disappointed by this ho-ho-horrible movie.

The movie builds some suspense around our curiosity about the theft, but we don't know enough about anything to get involved.
| Original Score: 2/4

a smart and angst-ridden piece of crime existentialism that loses only its nerve, never its brain.

Crammed with barflies, strippers and assorted reprobates, The Ice Harvest easily takes the honors as this holiday season's biggest and dirtiest lump of coal.

Okay, let me get this straight. These guys rip off $2 million in cash from a mob boss and they're scared of a little ice on the road?

Given that pedigree, it's all the more disappointing that this movie falls flat.

A great cast, a script by Oscar-winning veteran Robert Benton, with Richard Russo, and direction by Harold Ramis still don't add up to much more than a shrug.

A smug, and awfully dull quasi-noir comedy...

The Ice Harvest may not be as bad as a lump of coal in your stocking, but it isn't as exciting as a new pair of socks either.
