Slap stick comedy about bumbling idiot friends. It's not filthy, but can be a bit indelicate and crass. Some may disagree, but I think the lack of political correctness is a refreshing thing in this film and a redeeming quality. Very entertaining. Prepare to have some I.Q points vanish as you watch this moronity.

Is It Any Good?

Kids say (4 ):

David and Trejo are compelling supporting players, but even their presence can't make DELTA FARCE watchable. The war just isn't amusing, and neither is portraying red-state soldiers and Mexicans as stereotypical buffoons. And that's something moviegoers on every point of the political spectrum would probably agree upon.

No matter how viewers feel about the current war in Iraq, it's probably safe to say that most families don't consider it a funny topic. Apparently Larry the Cable Guy -- otherwise known as the "Git 'er done" member of the Blue Collar Comedy group -- and his pal, director C.B. Harding, thought otherwise when they developed this war movie parody.
