Like the best horror/comedies, Tucker & Dale vs. Evil mines its central crazy joke for some incredible scares, laughs, and -- believe it or not -- heart.

Here's something you don't see every day: a genial, politically correct splatter comedy.
Students of the Little Movie Glossary may find it funny how carefully "Tucker and Dale" works its way through upended cliches.
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.
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.
There's even a message under all the body parts: People are individuals, not just easy regional stereotypes.
Essentially a student film offering nothing but absurdly contrived coincidence.
Tucker and Dale is a surprisingly sweet movie, even when kids are chucking themselves into wood chippers or getting accidentally impaled on conveniently located sharp sticks.
Tucker and Dale vs. Evil is worth seeing for its performances, for its consistent ability to produce deaths that can be seen in several entirely different ways and for its droll commentary on horror movies that rely on unmotivated aggression.
[Tucker and Dale vs. Evil] is certainly part of the newly invigorated genre of horror-comedy -- and it's almost as good as Shaun of the Dead, though it can't top the recent alien invasion comedy Attack the Block.
If you only see one rednecks vs. preppies film this year...this should be the one. Oh, and watch out for that woodchipper.
A laugh-out-loud comedic gore-fest and a great first feature film from Craig.
I can't recommend this movie highly enough.
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.
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.
With originality to spare and two hillbillies that are actually likeable, the movie is enjoyable in theory but it's one joke plot gets old.
A very refreshing take on the old premise of kids getting into hick country and murdered one after another. As misunderstandings add up two kind-hearted hillbillies are mistaken for psycho murders and have to fight for their lives against bratty, unlikable college kids. That's gory, funny and tongue in cheek, fully aware of its own silliness. Very entertaining and bursting stereotypes with every step.
