Even a paddle can't keep this movie from sinking.

Shepard, Green and Lillard have good chemistry, and this bodes well considering there are three characters to play off each other rather than just two

Maybe the filmmakers should have called the picture Without a Laugh.

Gets into the male bonding mode with a casual, instinctive flair that breathes more life into the Steven Brill comedy than it may actually merit.

Without a Paddle is a sloppy effort, yet even a clichéd comedy could be fun if it actually delivered on laughs.

Average comedy, the acting is fine, but the script is pretty lame and it doesn't have a lot of good jokes.

'Una de esas películas intrascendentes, de las que da lo mismo que existan o no'

The cast is pleasant, which is a reasonable adjective to describe the entire project.

That said, the three leads are appealing enough so that the film remains watchable and the whole thing is almost worth seeing just for Seth Green's C-3PO impressions.

This is simply just another in a long line of lazy comedies.

While striving for a bit of liberalism (ain't we City types the real stoopid ones) almost every scene then throws in the towel and falls back on a clutch of unfunny country-livin' clichés.

Without a Paddle is two movies -- one good and one bad -- merged together into a cinematic hodgepodge of hilarity, originality, banality and absurdity.

Looks like yet another gross-out farce, but it's actually a genuinely engaging comic adventure.

Imagine Deliverance re-delivered as a Gen-X comedy, co-starring a hungry bear, two dope-growing rednecks and a mad mountain man (Burt Reynolds).

More enjoyable than we have any right to reasonably expect.

The inconsistency in tone leaves Without a Paddle up a certain unnamed creek.

... this isn't much of a stretch for the creator of the "Mighty Ducks" but at least it's a step in the right direction.

Without has all the freshness of moldering Playboys stashed under a mattress, but it evokes what few boys-will-be-boys larks can: chumminess.
