Critic Reviews for Don Verdean

All Critics (38) | Top Critics (20)

I think I chuckled about three times ...

December 12, 2015 | Full Review…

Don Verdean is a pleasingly entertaining, sometimes hilarious, quietly satirical take on what makes us tick as a subculture.

December 11, 2015 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

There is little that is worse than satire that tiptoes around its subject, as if risking offense were a sin.

December 11, 2015 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

The film employs and immediately squanders the talents of legitimate comedy all-stars Amy Ryan, Danny McBride, Jemaine Clement and Will Forte.

December 11, 2015 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

Even with the likes of Amy Ryan and Will Forte providing capable backup, it all grows ancient, fast.

December 10, 2015 | Full Review…

There is a redemptive message in Verdean's eventual downfall but it's mostly lost in a storyline that tries way too hard to be outlandish.

December 10, 2015 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
