Big, trashy fun.

If the film's flaws are large, so are its laughs.
September 28, 2001
There's a genuine sweetness and familial affection that shines through Sordid Lives, and enough oddball humor to keep it mooo-ving along.

Dang it if you won't laugh out loud through the whole thing!

It's hard to frown on a comedy that gleefully throws this much caution to the hot dusty wind.

It's a constant hoot and a half especially if you enjoy gals who've lost 42 pounds at Jenny Craig and been to bed with a guy with one testicle.

Runs the risk of alienating its audience by going a little too far over the top and, in its efforts to be different, delivers instead, more of the same.

Its stereotypes are insulting, its jokes are unfunny, and its emotions are labored. Sordid Lives is a sordid movie.

If only the lives in Sordid Lives were sordid. Instead, the movie might better be titled Loud Lives.

While the film at times feels like a clumsily acted play, a surprising turn by Delta Burke carries the cast out of the doldrums of an often-strained plot line.

The corn of Sordid Lives comes heavily salted -- nudity, bold talk, gay coming-out, transvestism -- but it's the crunch of the corn that will either win you or send you desperately to the lobby for the real thing.

Long-winded comedy.

A movie that, while robustly performed ... has the strange effect of not so much opening up a play for the screen as closing it in.
June 25, 2001
Sordid Lives is a galloping riot of dysfunctional family humor. Too bad it's just not that funny.
