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

Movies don't get much more disgustingly juvenile than this...

wholly undignified.

How do you siphon the laffs from a surefire gut-busting premise like city slickers stuck in the sticks? ... you assemble a cut-rate Three Stooges, inject tired '80s nostalgia and some moralistic goo about carpe-ing the diem.

Belabored would be too kind a word for it.

Without a Paddle plays like a movie the studio greenlit 25 years ago and only now got around to making.

I'm not saying Without a Paddle shouldn't be a comedy, but it didn't have to be a stupid comedy.

...made me long for the inspired idiocy of `Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle.'

Helmer Steven Brill and company owe me two hours

These guys get in way over their heads stuck in the wilderness. The characters are developed so the audience cares for the guys.

Director Brill makes no stylistic advances from his recent work with Adam Sandler, and shows no signs of seeking growth or improvement.

...[a] warped and water-logged laugher...Without a Paddle is a lazy assault on one's tolerance for exaggerated cruel goofiness.

Director Steven Brill fails to sustain a steady comedic pace; the movie lurches rather than flows from scene to scene.

It could have been titled "Without a Clue."

August 21, 2004
A faux-sentimental comedy that not only isn't funny, but half the time appears to have forgotten to insert the joke.

It looks like the filmmakers just don't realize that they've embarked on the movie making exercise with their comedic tank just barely half full.

Think Road Trip meets City Slickers. Then dial the humor down a few notches, and you're left Without a Paddle.

For a while this buddy comedy sails along smoothly on elements borrowed from The Goonies, Deliverance and Road Trip, but the relentlessly unimaginative script eventually leaves it becalmed.
