Search Party Reviews

October 30, 2017
It's the kind of comedy where being stoned might be the best way to indulge in its hi-jinks.

It's nasty and icky and vile and vulgar and hysterical, the last half hour is especially sublime stuff.

Uneven, intelligent, weird, sometimes funny (more often not) - and almost consistently engaging.

"Search Party" isn't completely without laughs, but a toxic cloud of sameness hangs over the feature, which wheezes from incident to incident, failing to build momentum through limp shock value.

[I]n its sitcom-like fratty humor, its waste of talented female performers ... in its sheer laziness and lack of originality, it feels like a throwback less to 2013 than to the 1990s.

This is the type of comedy where the flop sweat is nearly always present as each player tries to lift the comedy, only to tragically belly-flop over and over.

Men behave like immature boys in raunchy comedy.

Even if you invite a lot of talented people to the set, the result won't work if you don't give them a way to show why they're considered talented.

This spectacularly dumb and unfunny film will likely bore even the staunchest fans of the "Hangover" movies, of which "Search" is a kind of distant, fatally impoverished cousin.

It's just not very funny.

"Search Party" is a pedal-to-the-metal road trip that aims for spontaneity, but stays within the lines-even when it goes off on wacky tangents, there's never any doubt what direction it's actually headed.

Search Party is a waste of funny people who are given silly, unfunny things to do.

This is safe, hyper-conventional stuff, lazy enough to make you feel bad that Middleditch had to go nude for it. The best thing you can say about the movie is that men have taken their pants off for less.

Ultimately, charm is not enough to gloss over the clichd story, which may entertain for the short running time, but is about seven years too late to take anyone by surprise.

[An] entirely generic gross-out comedy.

The stag humour is crude and boorish and even the slapstick is very clumsily executed.

Scot Armstrong, one of the writers of The Hangover Part II, makes his directorial debut with a film that borrows large chunks of the plot from The Hangover part one.

The bromance lingers on in Hollywood thinking, like a fart in a sex dungeon.

Can we please just place a lifetime ban on 'White people vs Mexico' comedies, already?
