August 6, 2017
A redneck romantic comedy about marital infidelity, that is crude and unfunny.
Full Review | Original Score: C+
May 15, 2009
Like Pabst Blue Ribbon, which the characters drink by the case, this bubba comedy about cheating spouses is good for a cheap buzz.
April 29, 2009
What's worse is this is not just a bad film but a bad comedy...
October 18, 2008
Four boring characters, a painfully unfunny road trip and drama that's not quite as convincing as a daytime soap opera add up to a wretched time in this redneck romantic comedy.
February 10, 2005
A lot of weirdness from otherwise good actors.
| Original Score: 2/5
January 21, 2005
A bushel of yokel gags and labored boudoir misunderstandings ... culminating with a tipping-the-bellhop gag that first appeared in cave paintings.
July 27, 2003
...it's hard to imagine what these four stars saw in the script...
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
May 3, 2003
I can't begin to tell you how tedious, how resolutely unamusing, how thoroughly unrewarding all of this is, and what a reckless squandering of four fine acting talents...

Everyone's to blame here.

November 12, 2002
It won't harm anyone, but neither can I think of a very good reason to rush right out and see it. After all, it'll probably be in video stores by Christmas, and it might just be better suited to a night in the living room than a night at the movies.

The whole damn thing is ripe for the Jerry Springer crowd. It's all pretty cynical and condescending, too.

October 31, 2002
Brady achieves the remarkable feat of squandering a topnotch foursome of actors ... by shoving them into every clichéd white-trash situation imaginable.
October 29, 2002
It would be disingenuous to call Reno a great film, but you can say that about most of the flicks moving in and out of the multiplex. This is a movie that is what it is: a pleasant distraction, a Friday night diversion, an excuse to eat popcorn.
| Original Score: 3/4
October 29, 2002
I like all four of the lead actors a lot and they manage to squeeze a few laughs out of the material, but they're treading water at best in this forgettable effort.
October 25, 2002
A hillbilly romantic comedy in which the hillbillies show up but the romance and comedy never do.
October 25, 2002
An extremely unpleasant film.
October 25, 2002
There's nothing remotely topical or sexy here.

Put it somewhere between Sling Blade and South of Heaven, West of Hell in the pantheon of Billy Bob's body of work.

A strong contender for this year's Razzie sweep.
Full Review | Original Score: F
October 25, 2002
Nothing in Waking Up in Reno ever inspired me to think of its inhabitants as anything more than markers in a screenplay.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
