      Henry Sheehan Chicago Reader It’s too bad Clay doesn’t have the inclination or ability to plumb his oppressing-on-the-outside but oppressed-on-the-inside persona. Rated: 1/4 May 12, 2022 Full Review Owen Gleiberman Entertainment Weekly Rated: D+ Sep 7, 2011 Full Review Variety Staff Variety Surprisingly funny and expectedly rude, this first starring vehicle by vilified standup comic Andrew Dice Clay has a decidedly lowbrow humor that is a sort of modern equivalent of that of the Three Stooges. Mar 26, 2009 Full Review Rene Jordan El Nuevo Herald (Miami) A grotesque, offensive, and unforgivable film. [Full review in Spanish] Nov 17, 2022 Full Review Rob Gonsalves Rob's Movie Vault As an actor, Dice is sometimes likable — he keeps himself amused. But he’s stuck in this ghastly hybrid that never gets going and finally makes him look foolish. Rated: C- Aug 31, 2022 Full Review David Nusair Reel Film Reviews ...a misguided star vehicle that's aged horribly in the years since its 1990 release. Rated: 2/4 Apr 25, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews

      Jay H I was never a fan of Dice's stand-up act, but I found this movie to be quite enjoyable. Robert Englund steals the show. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 05/19/24 Full Review Gonzo g Loved this crazy silly movie Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/10/24 Full Review Stephen D This movie is so much fun! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/30/23 Full Review steve d I don't get Andrew Dice Clay and I don't get this. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Ed O'Neil saved this movie from getting 2 stars. Overall, it has its funny moments... Gilbert was mildly entertaining in this. Could have been better I guess. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/21/23 Full Review Audience Member loved it when I first watched it in the late 90's as a teen. Still love it, and it has aged well, as it perfectly captures the tropes of the 90s. A good nostalgia watch, and funny too. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Read all reviews
