Sufficiently twisted and amusing.

Sometimes I have really hard time understanding British humor and "Sightseers" has exactly the kind of dark British humor that I find unfunny. It's probably a cultural thing. I wouldn't say it is laugh-out-loud funny, although there are certainly some funny moments in it. It is an interesting blend of comedy and horror, and the fact that they managed to make it balanced as it is is something to admire about. The performances are solid and the editing is great as well. My main problem with the film is that I didn't like the two lead characters at all; I thought they were selfish, unlikable, and utterly despicable that it made me hard to relate to their love story. Having seen Wheatley's "High-Rise" beforehand, I expected that this film would be also unpleasant and disturbing at times, and it really was often uncomfortable to watch. There are good things in it, but I can't imagine myself watching it again. It's just not my cup of tea.

Sort of as if Philomena Cunk and Barry Shitpeas starred in a serial-killer movie scripted by Half Man Half Biscuit. Which, um, sort of works...

A detestable film that forces us to follow for eighty-eight minutes a couple of hateful psychopaths with a sick story that wants to be a very dark comedy and make fun of their gruesome atrocities - but everything is just too much bad taste to be remotely funny.

It might be critically acclaimed but this is a very sick story with sick characters and sick ending. Do not watch it.

A very strange film, like an Indie dramedy "Natural Born Killers." There are some very cool stylistic flourishes in here, but I don't know how realized of a film it is. It wants you to be connected to these psychopaths when I was mainly confused on how they are how they are. It's a good script, just perhaps never too coherent in its intentions.

Don't be fooled by the 'Laugh-Out-Loud Funny' quote for this supposed black comedy. It's neither funny or a comedy. What it is is depressing and miserable.

Sightseers is a low budget indie dark "comedy", but its more just a dark movie and not much laughs. There are some nice themes slowly built in, but ultimately it doesn't go anywhere. It starts off good enough, but quickly runs out of steam, even though the attempt is admirable and the concept is quirky.

Probably not as funny as it should be, but still huge fun nonetheless. With a decent mixture of dark comedy and gore I found it entertaining without been too silly

The movie has one of the most annoying, offensive and just plain unbearable character named Tina ever written by a woman and played with utter disgust by a woman, Tina is way distasteful than Meg Ryan's character in In The Cut and that's saying something. Atleast Jar Jar was funny in his own bizarre way. this one is just hateful.

Occasionally amusing but disjointed satire on Little Englander intolerance.

Psychopathic black comedy horror drama, both funny and disturbing. Took a strange turn halfway through. Pretty weird, very British. 6.5/10

After a promising start, the subtle jokes become less so, and for me, by trying to be darker looses it's purpose. Granted some moments are right on target, however one Episode on Fawlty Towers is more accurate about British culture, and funnier.

"Sightseers is an original film but a bit bizarre. This is a black comedy but I did not laugh anywhere as much as I was maybe intended to. It is definitely not for everyone. The couple are oddly likable, but the script goes to no effort to make us sympathise with or for them. Their actions are never anything but horrible."

I truly enjoyed this black comedy. So strange and original.
