It offers a lame one-joke premise.

This is a movie about how watching movies is stupid.

a hipster movie, affectedly exhausted and cocksure with no justification for it. And like anything hipster, you sort of want to kick it in the teeth.

The amplified sound effects and the remarkable mobility displayed by Bob without resorting to computer-enhanced special effects are the film's greatest strengths. If you have 82 minutes to kill, you may derive a...

Holy Luis Bunuel. Not nearly as clever as it thinks it is, "Rubber," a movie about movies from French musician/writer/director Quentin Dupieux, would have worked much better as a short.

If "Rubber'' was half as smart as it is clever, we might be talking gonzo midnight four-star classic here.

Part slasher-movie spoof, part self-reflexive Theater of the Absurd.

...plays like a drunken mash-up of Beckett, Troma and Hitchcock. Dupieux knows how to riff on the behavior and language of cinema but isn't clever or outlandish enough to sustain his film's 85-minute running time.

Rubber turns out to be rather redundant, and the audience-within-the-film angle is milked to death, with its employment serving as a wink-wink meta-theory on the nature of filmmaking as well as a commentary on the voyeuristic nature of audiences.

Few nice ideas. Should've been a short.

Though the film is a bit of a tour de force and certainly original, it is never quite funny enough to sustain even its short length.

More a deadpan art provocation than a real movie, Rubber is spun out like a musical theme through a series of variations.

An exercise in horrific absurdity that is neither as scary nor as amusing as it hopes to be.

But the movie is short on surprise-it's not really wild enough. And well before its 85 minutes have elapsed, it runs out of gas.

the act of watching Rubber is reminiscent of attempting to eat an unpeeled orange in its entirety

While it's admirably perverse for a "killer-tire movie" to be this snooty, it's about half as clever as it thinks it is.

Dupieux's idea, apparently, is that movie audiences are so stupid they'll consume anything, and the more tickets he sells for this arch little piece of junk, the more he'll be proved right. If I were you, I'd refuse to give him that satisfaction.

The potshots made at horror film audiences, and/or film audiences in general, are ... slipshod.

Pic offers auds few reasons to want to see it beyond its one-joke premise.
