Everyone seems to be having a jolly good time, though I'm still not sure what they're satirizing.

"Evil" fails to triumph. Utterly.

Few things are more annoying than a movie that doesn't stick to its over-the-top convictions.

If you're seeing this as the midnight movie it's destined to best be experienced as, you could safely drift off after the 45-minute mark...

Essentially a student film offering nothing but absurdly contrived coincidence.

Despite its crowd-pleasing nature, Tucker & Dale remains overly broad and one-note throughout

Silly one-joke spoof horror/comedy about rednecks and college students together in the woods.

By the time the action-packed, thoroughly tedious climax rolls around, Tucker and Dale Vs. Evil has established itself as a missed opportunity of disappointingly epic proportions...

Beats a dead horse all the way to the glue factory.

This goofy, over-the-top tale of college students on a camping trip warring with two local West Virginia hillbillies lacks a core identity.

The final acts of Tucker and Dale vs Evil find the movie falling into the trap of using the same conventions ... it so jovially and brutally skewers prior.

It's neither particularly funny in its desperate rural dumbness, nor is it much of a genre piss-take.

An allegory of our times, with a belabored message of tolerance punctuated by impalings and other grisly deaths.

Tucker & Dale Vs. Evil is too slick and too cute; Tudyk and Labine are terrific comic actors, but the movie might've been better served by less-recognizable faces.

Pass the pickled eggs. It's 'Hee-Haw' meets 'Friday the 13th.'

Tucker and Dale vs Evil is deliciously fun satire -- and, once all the blood has been spilt, offers an interesting riff on the line between hero and horror villain.

Who couldn't love a man who awkwardly approaches a girl, hoping to strike up a conversation, with a scythe in his hand? How can a guy who washes his wounds with beer not be endearing?

Beginning psychologists take note - hillbillies and college kids may kill each other, but the greatest assets in maintaining the peace, on both sides, are hot coeds.

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.
