...a low-key comedy perfectly tuned for our times.

Short on substance, despite a watchable supporting cast and an amiable overall tenor.

While it borrows from obvious sources, Kabluey eventually comes into its own as a wacky commentary on the state of America in the fifth year of the Iraq war.

A dark piece of whimsy that enchants and befuddles in equal measure.

In costume and character, Prendergast is a little funny and more than a little sad. So is the film.

Kabluey, which has no discernible political agenda, is wildly uneven and often seems like a short stretched to feature length. But it's also kind of oddly endearing.

The Austin-shot movie catches the nation's mood of economic anxiety and workplace exploitation more pungently than anything else in theaters.

In the recent epidemic of comedies about 30-something men in the throes of severe arrested development, he is one of the most pitifully incompetent losers.

Prendergast seems clueless that an excess of pure weirdness won't lead to an excess of laughs. It won't.

It's a sweet, ingenious, twisted and surreal comedy, kind of Samuel Beckett by way of Adam Sandler.
