Neither as funny nor as serious as it ought to be.

The script has the substance and the slacker leads have the chemistry, but the execution fumbles the tourniquet, failing to find any rich vein of wackiness.

You don't have to be stoned to watch Allan Moyle's latest small-town escapade, but it might help.

Like a joint that waits to kick in until after Dumbo's pink elephant dream sequence has already unraveled.

It's wacky, it's zany, it's loopy, it's freaky, it's daffy - but alas, not the most important one, which is "funny".

The paper-thin characters make it feel less like a rounded feature and more like a TV pilot with the promise of more adventures to come.

If there was more vision on the front end, with more thought put into shot composition and less adherence to trendy, attention-deficit filmmaking, Weirdsville might have been an innovative indie gem

I kept wishing for a rewrite that sent the Satanists packing and pulled the love story hiding within Wennekers' script to the fore.

A second-rate Trainspotting.

The film jumps around following the misadventures of the characters, and the whole enterprise comes to be frenetic and convoluted rather than pleasingly impudent.

Yes, parts of it are actually funny, and there are plenty of giggles throughout, but everything seems like it was done paint-by-numbers.

One of the most unlikable films of the year.

Allan Moyle's stoner heist movie is a meandering dud.

Anarchic and low budget, make sure you take along your bong.

Moyle shows great control over most of Weirdsville, taking joy in Willem Wennekers's screenplay by submerging the action in accelerated colors and embracing the slapstick nature of it all.

A quirky, amusing caper that shouldn't work, but somehow does.

I was laughing well into the film's third act, when most films stop being funny.

A pleasingly gonzo black comedy pitched somewhere between Rosencrantz And Guildenstern Are Dead Stoned and Dude, Where's My Crack?

Moyle is as deft a craftsman as ever, utilizing the widescreen frame to create a number of elegant, vibrantly colorful images that give the film a bright, bubbly energy in spite of the violence at its core.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
