Those that haven't tired from Farrelly brothers' brand of comedy may still find some laughs here. Otherwise, the slow pacing and unimaginative shock gags will start to wear on the viewer.

Field, for her part, can finally relax. We no longer like her. We really no longer like her.
Like the failed humor, the sight gags aren't so much bad taste as merely bad.
A cringe-inducing flop.
Poor timing and muffed set pieces are compounded by implausibility and inconsequence.
This review is written in a state of posttraumatic shock.
This film is a hogwhimpering disgrace for all concerned.
A mediocre comedy about incest.
What we have here is a wannabe-outrageous comedy that flirts with the last taboo but then retreats.
Flat, borderline banal comedy that in theory includes all the ingredients of the Farrelly brothers (who here serve as producers) about the seemingly incestuous relationship between siblings Chris Klein and Heather Graham
The Farrelly brothers, Bobby and Peter, are beginning to make the same mistake that the Zucker brothers (Jerry and David, along with Jim Abrahams) made, which was to split up and take increasingly less responsibility for their films.
There are few laughs to be had during the running time of Say It Isn't So...
This movie sinks or swims on its humor, and frankly, the Farrellys don't appear to have been very good swimming instructors.
I really don't understand all the flack that this film has gotten. I found it pretty funny for what it was. Sure it's not as great as other comedic gems, but this film really does provide you with a few good chuckles. I really enjoyed the film, and I thought it was a perfect mindless comedy to watch with friends and enjoy. If you're in the right state of mind, you are sure to enjoy this film. Don't expect anything great with this film, as it is definitely a crazy film. The standout of the film is Orlando Jones as Dig McCaffey; I thought he stole the show and it worthwhile. I think that this film is really underrated and is actually pretty funny. This is one of those comedies that you have to shut off your brain to enjoy. Not perfect in any way, Say it Isn't So is tasteless humor at its finest. Sometimes all you need is a good little comedy like this to make you laugh. I very much liked the film, and thought it was pretty funny for what it was. Sure, there are things that really don't work here, but for the most part, it succeeds at making you chuckle and it's fairly entertaining as well. If you want a good, mindless underrated comedy, then give this one a shot, not perfect, but far from bad as well. Go into this one with an open mind, and you may like it. If mindless laughter is what you're looking for, then this is the film for you. This is a film that really doesn't deserve the flack it has received, and you should at least check it out before you make up your mind. It's better than what most people have said about it.
First of all, I was disappointed that the Farrellys didn't take the director's seat on this one. I hate when previews mislead you like that. Nine times out of ten, when you hear the announcer in a trailer say, "from horror master Wes Craven" or something of that sort, it means the well-known director is a producer or executive producer in the project, like in this case. But it still has that Farrelly vibe, since J.B. Rogers worked as the A.D. in their previous works.
The movie gets off to a slow start. The gags start off pretty lame. And most of the funny parts shown were given away in the previews. We're handed a lot of quirks, but the comedy doesn't quite gel. We have Richard Jenkins as a wheelchair-bound father, who uses excessive profanity through a voice-box. So far, we're pushing the envelope, but the laughs haven't entirely arrived. I have to admit, though, the nipple-piercing scene was very funny. Luckily, that scene wasn't completely given away in the trailers, because quite frankly--it couldn't be shown on network television.
The film speeds up the comedy with the arrival of Orlando Jones as a pilot with artificial legs and a Jimmi Hendrix hairdo. For some reason, the Farrellys have an obsession with handicapped characters. Jones is very funny, and brings in the film's biggest laughs.
I also think we wander into one-joke territory one time too many. OK, the guy banged his sister. It was funny at first. How many times do we have to hear it repeated in the next gag...and the gag after that...and the gag after that? But the gags improve as we go along, and I got more and more laughs. By the last thirty minutes, I was laughing myself silly! So I wouldn't say this comedy is anywhere near as bad as most people said it was.
"Say It Isn't So" isn't the best comedy of the year, but it often delivers. And it's one of the few comedies that gets funnier as it goes along, rather than starting off with a bang and dragging on as it progresses.
This movie was really lame. A waste of film is what I like to call these kinds of movies. I only watched it cause it was the only thing on t.v. on a Sunday. Waste of time. Would have been better off staring at a wall.
Very funny jaja! Just comedy to laugh to in case you don't have nothing else to do. Say It Isn't So is touted as being from the Farelly brothers, who wrote and directed the movies Dumb and Dumber, Kingpin, and There's Something About Mary. And though they didn't write or direct this movie, it certainly has the same elements: charming lead actors (in this case, Heather Graham from Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me and Chris Klein from Election and American Pie) put through all sorts of comic grotesqueries, ranging from having an ear cut off to getting a hand stuck up a cow's rectum. Orphaned dogcatcher Gilly (Klein) and incompetent hairdresser Jo (Graham) fall in love, only to discover that Gilly's long-lost mother is Jo's own white trash momma (played with gusto by Sally Field). Unfortunately, they'd already slept together, so Jo flees in shame to go back to her ex-boyfriend in Beaver, Oregon. But when Jo's real brother shows up, Gilly sets out to win Jo back--only her mom wants her to marry the ex and tells the Beaver police that Gilly is a sexual predator. Say It Isn't So doesn't have the crude wit of There's Something About Mary, but there are several laugh-out-loud moments, and both Graham and Klein are sweet and engaging. Orlando Jones has a zestful turn as a legless seaplane pilot.
