  • This movie is certifiably insane, that's a given, but it's also extremely witty, has far more intelligence than you might originally expect and has a grand time exploding clichés and playing with an audience's expectations.

    January 27, 2012 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Here's something you don't see every day: a genial, politically correct splatter comedy.

    January 4, 2012 | Full Review…
  • Clever horror/comedy hybrid of the kind that Sam Raimi used to make and that so many have tried to produce in recent years but have fallen remarkably flat. There's nothing flat about this clever genre flick. For the right audience, it's pretty great.

    October 7, 2011 | Rating: 4.0/5.0 | Full Review…
  • Students of the Little Movie Glossary may find it funny how carefully "Tucker and Dale" works its way through upended cliches.

    October 6, 2011 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • At its heart, it's really just a one-idea premise stretched out to feature length, but the lovable duo of Tudyk and Labine and an endearing layer of sweetness under all the blood make it a fully enjoyable comedy of (t)errors.

    September 30, 2011 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
  • It's time we all toss our nine bucks into the proverbial woodchipper (don't ask me what proverb) and spit out enough money to make Tucker & Dale and other truly deserving, truly funny indie flicks a blazing success.

    OMG. Funny. Really funny. Great Halloween movie.

    It is super nice to see how instead of being a one-joke movie stretched for two hours it manages to find new ways to surprise us and make fun of slashers clichés without seeming stupid or missing what makes it so funny - and it is very funny, with the bonus of also having a heart.

    Loopy twist on the usual "inbred drooling rednecks in the woods" horror go-to wherein the horny college kids jump scare react to that expectation when in fact the absolute opposite is true. Kinda fun.

    I'm usually not into slashers or horror comedies, but this one was pretty decent, with some genuinely funny moments and good kill gags.
