Delta Farce Reviews

  • Here's a sobering thought: If every war gets the comedy it deserves, could Delta Farce, a strenuously unfunny Three Amigos knockoff, be our M*A*S*H?

    Scott Brown — Entertainment Weekly

  • With Delta Farce, his second movie vehicle, the Southern-fried comedian Larry the Cable Guy takes ever greater risks to advance his career.

    Andy Webster — New York Times

  • It's dopey Army comedy in the tradition of Buck Privates and Stripes, just with the sights aimed lower and blissfully unaware of its own monumental tastelessness.

    Ty Burr — Boston Globe

  • This is a movie where the villains are the comic relief for the comedians, and where the outtakes at the end are better than the film.

    Jack Mathews — New York Daily News

  • The liveliest battle in this atrocious service comedy is fighting the urge to leave midway through.

    Colin Covert — Minneapolis Star Tribune

  • Delta is likable, though, and both David and Trejo class up the act with their distinct comedic gifts.

    John Anderson — Variety

  • There are henpecked-husband jokes, gay jokes, turd humor, mispronounced Iraq war terms, guys asking "Who farted?" and lots more Crackel Barrel comedy.

    Kyle Smith — New York Post

  • The story: Georgia 'weekend warriors' are shipped off to Iraq and somehow, between Georgia and Fallujah, the plane taking them dumps them into Mexico. No, the screenwriter didn't know how to read a map.

    Roger Moore — Orlando Sentinel

  • Even a blind pig digs up the occasional acorn, as the saying goes, and Delta Farce hits a squirrel's banquet in the casting of Danny Trejo as town villain Carlos Santana (cue rock guitarist jokes).

    Peter Howell — Toronto Star

  • If you're hungry for comical interpretations of an errant war, may I suggest any episode of M*A*S*H -- or, indeed, any episode of Fox News.

    Michael Harris — Globe and Mail

  • Forgetting the poor taste inherent in creating an inane military comedy like this one while American soldiers are still dying overseas, Delta Farce isn't funny enough to justify its existence.

    Frank Scheck — Hollywood Reporter

  • What it really boils down to is whether you're a fan of Larry the Cable Guy. If so, you'll (I would hope) realize you're watching a pretty stupid comedy but will laugh in the appropriate parts.

  • Whatever your pet sensitivity -- the military, rednecks, gays, Mexicans -- this movie is an equal-opportunity denigrator.

    Jim Lane — Sacramento News & Review

  • War in Iraq isn't funny -- neither is this movie.

  • The only farcical aspect of it is that it was greenlit in the first place.

    Felix Gonzalez Jr. — DVD Review

  • It's OK to write comedies about morons%u2026as long as you don't insult the intelligence of the audience in the script.

    Linda Cook — Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)

  • Is it funny? Not really. All of its subversive potential is wasted on [director] Harding, and even the straight-ahead farce is joyless.

    Marrit Ingman — Austin Chronicle

  • ...a surefire reassurance that war is indeed hell...another prime example of ingenuity involving a box of crayons and someone's desperate idea for quick-witted lunacy.

    Frank Ochieng — Movie Eye

  • A romantic flicker between the dumpy Larry and a pretty local senorita defies all logic -- even in a movie this illogical.
