Critic Consensus: Men & Chicken's bizarre setup only skims the surface of a challenging, well-acted comedy with a warm heart to match its grotesque visuals and dark themes.

Critic Reviews for Men & Chicken (Mænd & høns)
Anders Thomas Jensen is one of Denmark's most fêted film-makers, the winner of two Oscars and a man with a knack for twisted comedies.
Like the mansion where most of the action unfolds, writer/director Anders Thomas Jensen's fourth feature brims with mutant creatures, bestial desires and warped family feelings.
A darkly comic dysfunctional family drama rather than the carnival of grotesquery it could have been.
The actors capture the boorishness and animalistic side of their characters, but also their vulnerability in the face of a world that makes such little sense to them.
Audience Reviews for Men & Chicken (Mænd & høns)
A bit of a sci-fi family drama as two entirely different adopted brothers look for and find the old familial stomping grounds ... only to be faced with the ugly reality that its not quite up to expectations. Late in the film we all discover the reason why, but not before the brothers are faced not only with their differences but with bonding in spite of them. There's heart in this mess, which may be the point of all families, eh?
Mads Mikkelsen is priceless - and nearly unrecognizable with a cleft lip, fake teeth and an eccentric composition - in this hilarious comedy that feels like a darkly humored mix of The Island of Dr. Moreau and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, but the ending feels a bit off.
