Reyaaz Hassan: The blackest of black comedies - it makes Shallow Grave look like Mary Poppins - I thoroughly enjoyed this movie - If you have a warped mind and a flexible morality it is a Must See.

Andrew Kinnear: I didn't bring anything positive out of this movie.

Nick Soper: Wow. I am shocked. I entered the cinema expecting to see another ''There's Something About Mary''. Boy was I surprised! This is black comedy at it's blackest! Very cool stuff.

Stu Davids: This is a terrible movie. The sad part is that it could have been really good. There are some funny parts but with all the ridiculous screaming, winging and whining by the cast (especially Cameron Diaz) you just get irritated. It is also incredibly irritating that none of the characters seems to have a brain and they fart around getting themsleves deeper and deeper into the poo!

Graeme Smith: If you like something about Mary, then you will like this one as well. It was better than I expected. The only weak link was Christian Slater. He did not come across quite convincing. It was great fun, but you must not be squeamish and must bring your warped sense of humour along, when seeing this really 'Black Comedy'.

Robert Haynes: Most enjoyable but deadly dark comedy - performances are all 'way' over the top but what do you expect with a young first time actor turned director like Peter Berg will not appeal to all tastes especially those who enjoyed the lightweight albeit offensive There's Something About Mary - HELLO the two movies have nothing in Common - except miss Diaz - It was just sly marketing people - PLEASE don't fall for it. When I bought my ticket some moron in front of me asked for 'two to There's Something About Mary 2, please'.
