Critic Reviews for The Spoils Before Dying Season 1

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (14)

His latest "masterpiece," you also may suspect, is no masterpiece, but an upchuck of every cinematic fad and flourish from the '50s, mostly French New Wave.

Satire like this works best when it's focused, like McKinnon's character is on finding a lover.

Top Critic

Most characters are reduced to a single joke repeated endlessly, under the assumption that the repetition of words or phrases constitutes comedy.

Top Critic

For three nights, over roughly three hours, Ferrell and the Funny or Die team push their unique, smart brand of humor, one that winks at the audience in its sheer ridiculousness.

The Spoils Before Dying won't tickle everyone's fancy, but it shows IFC at its creative best.

The Spoils Before Dying requires some time and in return offers some rewards.

Jul 7, 2015 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

A dead-on parody of vintage, L.A. noir.

Jan 5, 2017 | Full Review…

The editing is deliberately slapdash and schizophrenic, the actors stumble through nonexistent scene direction, and the script collapses under the weight of its own absurdity

Jun 3, 2016 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

What remains the same are a few cheesy, cheap looking sets (that still probably cost a fortune) and sublimely ham-tastic performances from some of the biggest names in comedy.

Jul 13, 2015 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

Some of the gags feel recycled from"Babylon, especially the traveling shots that rely on model cars and buildings, but the jazz backdrop offers enough new elements to skewer to make Dying worthwhile.
