      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Year One is a poorly executed, slapdash comedy in which the talent both in front of and behind the camera never seem to be on the same page.

      Deborah Ross The Spectator All in all, this is a sloppy, unoriginal, brain-dead mess that can't even be bothered to get itself out of trouble. Aug 29, 2018 Full Review Nell Minow Movie Mom Rated: C Apr 21, 2012 Full Review Joshua Rothkopf Time Out Rated: 3/5 Nov 17, 2011 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review A dreary, groan-inducing comedy that fails to be funny or entertaining under even the most lenient terms. Rated: 1.5/4 Sep 4, 2023 Full Review Mike Massie Gone With The Twins It may go slightly beyond the blueprints for a formulaic parody movie, but it has all the same symptoms. Rated: 5/10 Nov 29, 2020 Full Review Richard Propes TheIndependentCritic.com Year One relies almost solely upon bawdy, sophomoric humor. Rated: 1.0/4.0 Aug 31, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews

      Honest D This movie has an abysmal rating. I chalk a lot of that up to Christians not being able to take a joke. This movie is hilarious! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 04/09/24 Full Review Best Property Cleaning Service This movie is an absolute delight! It's a great movie that lets you escape and let you go with nonsense of the characters if you abandon your highfalutin ideals of what funny and good writing in cinematography and all that goes with other types of movies I guarantee see this movie in a different light it's a great movie for for the sheer purpose of escapism at least for a little while. I highly recommend. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/04/24 Full Review James T It's not a bad movie, gave me a good laugh, might watch again Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 12/14/23 Full Review Emily C In my opinion, it's kinda funny, I love how oh just shows no emotion but still funny and sarcastic, idc what anyone says, this movie is good. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 11/28/23 Full Review MamaNix funny would watch again Rated 4 out of 5 stars 11/26/23 Full Review Banksy's B Its bad but I really enjoy this movie I've watched it a few times now.
