      Critics Consensus

      Like its two obnoxious protagonists, this dreadfully unfunny Pauly Shore vehicle should remain separated from society.

      Owen Gleiberman Entertainment Weekly Rated: F Sep 7, 2011 Full Review John Anderson Los Angeles Times Despite the advances humankind has made since dragging itself out of the primordial ooze, Shore is a successful comedian. Rated: 0.5/5 Aug 4, 2009 Full Review Entertainment Weekly Even with the low expectations any reasonable viewer brings to a Shore flick, this rates only stupid-plus. Rated: C- Aug 4, 2009 Full Review Mal Vincent The Virginian-Pilot At one point, Pauly looks into the camera and says, ``Sometimes stupid can be pretty cool.'' Not this time, Pauly. Rated: 1/4 Mar 22, 2022 Full Review Richard Propes TheIndependentCritic.com Shore captured the Razzie award for Worst Male Lead (tied with Tom Arnold) for his performance here. Rated: .5/4.0 Sep 3, 2020 Full Review Daniel Barnes Dare Daniel A psychotically unfunny and thoroughly loathsome comedy from start to finish. That said, the film earns points for never taking its foot off the pedal, and for never attempting to make the manic idiot protagonists remotely likable or even human. Rated: 2/5 Apr 9, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews

      Kayden W All these other reviews are bs. hilarious movie Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/14/24 Full Review B-Hole S Remember the 90's, when only college students and scientists cared about the environment? When the premise of a movie didn't matter as long as it had Paulie Shore? Take me back to these simpler times! This movie is 95 minutes of montages and unintelligible dialog, and I don't care! I love it! This movie is not meant to be cinema, so just give yourself over to the stupidity, and have a good time. Everyone involved in making this movie clearly knew what it was, and they are in on the joke. They manage to cram 11 months of time passing, into the final 20 minutes of the movie. Expect 4th wall breaks, flashbacks to childhood, and a friendship on par with Dumb & Dumber. Put pretentiousness aside, and give yourself over to this movie for a cheesy good time. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/10/24 Full Review Christopher J this movie was funny as hell these critics man........ Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/05/24 Full Review Steve D The poor supporting cast. At least the script was worth of the two leads. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 09/17/23 Full Review Robert S Pauly SHore at his best. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/18/23 Full Review Edwin P Fun classic movie!! Love Paul shore!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/03/23 Full Review Read all reviews
