Like Pabst Blue Ribbon, which the characters drink by the case, this bubba comedy about cheating spouses is good for a cheap buzz.

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

4 friends, 2 couples, 2000 miles, and all the Pabst Blue Ribbon beer they can drink - it's the ultimate redneck road-trip.

While the subject matter is serious, Waking Up In Reno is played (mostly) for laughs, and there are plenty of them.

Offers big, fat, dumb laughs that may make you hate yourself for giving in. Ah, what the hell.

What's worse is this is not just a bad film but a bad comedy...

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.

A lot of weirdness from otherwise good actors.

A bushel of yokel gags and labored boudoir misunderstandings ... culminating with a tipping-the-bellhop gag that first appeared in cave paintings.

...it's hard to imagine what these four stars saw in the script...

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...

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.
