“..when the movie falls flat - and it does, especially in an unfunny and nauseating love scene involving a piranha hiding inside a hoo-ha - it's a drag..”
by Staci Layne Wilson [Horror.com]
“..this sequel has "outrageous" stamped across its chest, which not only ruins the joke but also could endanger the implants..”
by Jay Stone [Ottawa Citizen]
1.5 of 4

“..there's little wit or sense on view, just cheesy gross-outs and profanities strung together; plot, characters and all that other stuff are clearly beside the point, and for some potential viewers..”
by Michael Gingold [Fangoria]

“..The tempting trailer for this over-inflated sequel to 2010's B-movie horror suggested that it would deliver pneumatic bliss and bloody piscine horror in equal measure. Synthetic, lifeless and shapeless, it offers nothing of the kind. The flesh-eating pre..”

“..some of the gags just don't "hit" or "pop", leaving the audience sort of quietly giggling to themselves..”

“..sadly, a protracted first act doesn't catch fire as sundry good-looking youngsters get chomped in knockabout nastiness which isn't that effective..”

“..oddly, Gulager's depiction of these cartoonish events seems restrained-if anything the film, it's too understated..”
by Todd Gilchrist [Boxoffice Magazine]

“..ludicrous pack-traveling creatures who seem to lack long-term goals..”
by Mack Rawden [Cinema Blend]
“..funny, inane and with quotable dialogue to rivalAnchorman, Piranha 3DD is too stupid to miss..”
by Stephen [Mildconcern.com]
“..despite the title's big-bosom promise, the treatment of living female flesh is largely perfunctory, as though fulfilling a contractual obligation embedded in the title..”
by Leslie Felperin [Variety]
1.5 of 4

“.."there's something in the water" all right, and apparently it's making movies (and audiences) progressively more stupid..”

“..Home doesn't stand out as fresh or particularly funny. There are stretches that feel flat..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]


“..Hart and Ferrell may not be Pryor and Wilder, but they score several laughs in this slim comedy..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]


“..lazy and contrived retread can ever hope to be..”
by Rodrigo Perez [The Playlist]

“..while the story falls a bit into melodrama, that can't chop away at the solid drama the stars and director build beautifully..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]


“..in While We're Young, writer-director Noah Baumbach gets hold of a good satirical premise and does halfway well by it, maybe even two-thirds..”
by David Edelstein [Vulture]


“..it's all very familiar in that Blair Witch kind of way, with neither the characters nor situations proving remotely interesting..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]


“..the way director Kornel Mundruczo got Body and Luke to run the gamut of emotions from face-licking adorableness to teeth-baring killers baying for blood is genuinely impressive..”
by Cath Clarke [Time Out London]


“..a nearly laughless comedy that doesn't do its writer/director/stars any favors..”
by Roger Moore [Movienation]


“..has some recognizable stars, but they are trapped in a slim story padded with lots and lots of flesh-eating..”
