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.
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.
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.
Hands up who loves a good ol' entertaining movie? Sometimes all you want and need from a movie is to be entertained - this is that movie! Fun, humorous, well made, no thinly veiled aspirations to be anything it's not, 'Tucker & Dale' is a solid piece of filmmaking in that most tricky of genres... the comedy-horror. It's on Netflix Mubists so do yourself a favour and watch it! :-)
Stumbled across this comedic gem on netflix on Halloween night; and what a remarkable comedy this was. Tightly structured and hilarious jokes with fantastic acting. Really manages to hit all the right notes - check it out.
I haven't laughed this hard in awhile. With great chemistry between Labine & Tudyk, hilarious misunderstandings, a story with some heart, and constant reversing of cliches this is one the best horror comedies of recent years. It does get serious near the end but I didn't mind as the middle section had me laughing so much.
