Proof that when moral crusaders come to hang Hollywood, Hollywood will supply the rope!

A script filled with blunt dialogue on sex, drugs and violence that's neither funny nor particularly original.

Idle Hands is all thumbs. Ten of 'em, black and blue and bloodied, all pointed down in deference of the Siskel and Ebert rating system. Yuck.

upposed to be a horror-comedy film, but it's neither scary nor funny, and it's not much of a film.
