Easily the funniest Meta-horror comedy since Shaun of the Dead! Clever as fuck, pretty cool origin story, and a heartfelt hillbilly romance that the whole family can enjoy! Also contains the best wood chipper death scene since Fargo. Yet another thing from Canada that I adore.
Gets the balance of humour and gore about as right as I've ever seen. This is one time that making teenagers interchangeable stereotypes pays off. Charming and silly and like its title characters, lovable.
To cop a line from Leonard Maltin, TUCKER & DALE VS EVIL is one long, very funny joke. Making fun of conventions in the horror genre is old hat at this point, but TUCKER & DALE is on of the few films that takes it to new heights. Rednecks have always been fair game for the genre, but TUCKER & DALE gives the hillbillies their day by making the college kids with too much book larnin' the enemy. The result is hilarious.
What seems at first like a one-joke film being stretched out holds up surprisingly well throughout, due in large part to the fact that the filmmakers do such a good job of bringing Tucker and Dale to life and making them both likable and put-upon when dealing with their sudden infestation of college kids
