Very violent, lots of sex and no comedy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DONT LET KIDS SEE ITT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THREW UP WHILE WATCHING IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Really? A COMEDY WITH LOTS OF BLOOD!!!!!! Throughout most of the kills, Dead bodies have words carved into their chests, not very graphic as you could get used to it.There is a camp fire story where is said that a man killed people and chopped his own genitals off. A man's decapitated head is seen on top of a record player (some blood is seen)A television is thrown into a swimming pool and a man is electrocuted to death. A person dressed in tribal costume attacks and kills three people with a sword. One man is curt through his shoulder, a woman falls off a cliff and slides her hand on the machette, and another woman is slash out of shot. Some blood. A man in a costume is cut with a machete across the abdomen and some blood is seen at the wound after being trapped in the maze A man dreams he is being attacked, and that his attacker is stabbed through the chest. A man is stabbed through the chest. Minor blood.An indian man is stabbed in the chest after the villan throws a machette at him, he is still alive and hits tennis balls at the villain, later he is stabbed many times and we hear groaning, (this is played for comical effect)A woman gets trapped in a jacuzzi almost drowning, then a man grabs and axe and breaks the glass and water spills out.We see three mud tubs, a fat man searches for any bodies, the first one seems to have none, the secondd one had a man covered in mud, and the third had a body but it is unknown and the fat man stabs a person, we hear some piercing sounds, then the man covered in mud wakes up.A man on a hanglider crashes into a hut and he is seen dead with words carved on his chest We see a stage full on dead bodies hanging from them and everysone screams in panic. A man gets his throat slit and later he is buried in sand with words carved on them, another lady is being chased by a villain and drives a golf cart, she is killed off screen. ONE GRAPHIC SCENE of A man is slashed by a machette in the stomach while getting a propellor to the boat and we see the wound breifly but still alive but dies slowly into the waterA man swings from a cord around his neck and crashes through a window (we see the man hanging for an extended period with blood on his face and neck and his tongue sticking out), A man has a shrine to a celebrity in his room (photos of the celebrity and candles burn). A man has a large scar on his stomach. A man raises an ax over another man, and another man stabs the first man in the back with a machete. Another graphic scene!!! Half a man (head and torso) attacks a woman on a boat grabbing her around the neck, and another man grabs the man and tosses him into the sea. A man hits a woman in the face, she falls back, and he wraps a rope around a man's neck and tries to strangle him. The villain puts a bloody towel on the curtain hanger and covers a mans head in the shower, we later see the man's shirt all bloody A deleted scene showned in the trialer where the villain fires an arrow at a raft exploding it The villains legs at the end are seen kicking the water, A person is torn in half by a boat from waist to legs and screams in agony, we see his legs sink to the bottom of the water with blood spraying and it is very violent! There is even many sexual refrences such as breastts, genitals and a man taking off his pants exposing his penis! Also there us 15 F WORDS!!!! DONT LET YOUR KIDS SEE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

LOL, just lol

lolololo i laughed so many times during the film. I'd say it's good for teens aged 13+ nothing very explicit theres the scene where man's head rolls on player and man gets half of his body torn apart by rope but again its a comedy like Bad Taste or Scary Movie

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (2 ):

The world did not need a comic slasher movie -- or, to be more precise, another failed attempt at one, such as this is. BROKEN LIZARD'S CLUB DREAD lacks imagination, wit, acting ability, or distinctive characters.

What it does have is a lot of joke-oids -- dialogue that has the rhythm of a joke but is no actual comic content. When a sweet young thing tells a character that she goes to Oral Roberts University, you know what the joke-oid is going to be. And imagine the non-riotous non-humor they can find in an Asian character whose name, Yu, sounds just like the word "you!" Twice! And then there's that little statue with the huge genitals. And the sex in a graveyard: "Isn't this like sacred or something?" "No, they're dead!" And the bestiality humor. They even throw in that gone-and-should-have-been-forgotten chestnut, sarcastic clapping.
