One of the funniest parodies ever

This is acted well and this made me laugh more than I can recall another movie doing. The main characters of Tucker and Dale are nice and one of them (can't remember which one) is such a sweet loving person who is a great role model. There is however, alot of violence with the majority of which being accidental but characters believing to be on purpose. There is nudity but it is in the distance for less than five seconds. The language in the film is bad but I've heard worse in in 12As. Overall, watch this movie but do expect violence.

Funny, gory, and incredibly enjoyable

First off, yes, there is definitely sexual innuendos and jokes. There is also swearing but hey, it's rated R, whaddya gonna do?
I watched it with my mother when i was about 14 years old and not to be gross, but I actally peed my pants from laughing so hard. My mother thought it was super funny as well. Parents and their kids will find it enjoyable. It is a very well made movie with great actors, an interesting story and plenty of bloody messes.

very funny and good but.........

This movie is very funny but there is a lot of violence and swearing. I wouldn't say that this is a family movie to watch with younger kids.

Occasionally Gruesome but Lighthearted Horror

Tucker and Dale vs Evil was an absolute blast. Tipping the dead backwoods horror sub-genre on its head, this parody follows two kind hillbillies taking a holiday to a cabin in the woods and being mistaken for serial killers by a group of teens.

Witty, clever, and laugh-out-loud funny, this is one of the better horror parodies (no Scream though). There’s not really much more to say other than watch it. You’ll have a blast.

GREAT, CLEVER AND A GOOD MESSAGE!!!!

SEX- Bare breasts barely visible in the dark, sex talk, teens clearly think about sexy stuff.
LANGUAGE- f--k, s--t, p---y, bitch, a--hole, hell, goddamn, Jesus (as an exclamation), crap, and dickwad.
VIOLENCE- Teens brutally killed in various ways, threats, nails to a police mans head, heads bashed.
GREAT MESSAGE- It shows that you shouldn't judge someone by their first impression and how they look.

Hilarious Movie! I LOVED IT!!! Its about 2 hillbillies who just bought a vacation home, which is a creepy cabin in the woods. And nearby a group of college kids are vacationing. 1 of the kids hits her head when going to swim with the others, the hillbillies see this and save her from drowning. But the college kids see this and think that the hillbillies are stealing their friend. So they try to get her back by trying to attack the hillbillies, but each one of their attacks fails and they fall into (example:) a woodchipper. But it is a funny COMEDY-horror movie.

Very clever comedy flips the evil hillbilly cliche.

This movie is great. It features some of the best comedic timing I have ever seen and as a fan of horror movies it was even better as I was able to easily understand the cliches that the film was poking fun at. Although there is a lot of graphic violence in this movie, unlike with horror movies parents should not be too concerned as it is all done for comedic effect. This violence includes accidental self impalement, a character falling into a wood chipper while attempting to kill another character, and other graphic but played for laughs violence. Overall, Tucker and Dale Vs Evil is a great movie to watch for fans of the horror genre especially and is definitely one of the best made comedies of all time.

I'm disappointed in Commen sense media

Despite what Commen sense says, their is nudity in this film. It it at a distance in a dark atmosphere, but it lasts a good fifteen seconds. The fact that I picked up on this right away while Commen sense media was looking for it and they didn't disturbs me.

Horror/Comedy mix is clever but dark.

This is a great film, my favorite scene was the fight at the end, but has lots of blood and gore galore! Teens die by accidental suicide. A teen runs from one of the "hillbillies" who's running around with a chainsaw when being chased by bees, and runs into a branch and gets impaled through the stomach and dies. A teen with a homemade spear trips and stabs himself in the gut. A teen tries to kill Tucker with a pocket knife with a leaping strike, but misses and falls head-first into a wood-chipper. His lower half is pulled out, and some innards are visible. A police officer leans on an unstable beam, it breaks, and a chunk of wood full of nails is flung into his forehead. He is still able to walk around, but dies shortly after. A teen accidentally shoots himself in the face with a gun when he removes the safety. Not very visible (shown from inside a car) but blood splatters on the windshield. A teen gets a weed-wacker to the face, very bloody, but survives, but dies in an explosion. A teen is accidentally set on fire. A teen dies in an explosion. There is a car crash, but no one is harmed. A teen is nearly killed with a sawmill. A teen is badly burned in an explosion, and fights Dale at the end of the film (SPOILER) and supposedly dies from an asthma attack that causes him to fall out a window. (SPOILER OVER) A flashback shows other hillbillies killing other teens from around the 60's or 70's. A man gets a saw blade to the face, another teen is stabbed in the neck with a machete. A woman is raped (mentioned, but not shown) and tortured (a cattle prod to the neck), but the woman escapes by stabbing the torturer with a knife. A man is burned alive in a furnace (Man burning not shown). Some sexuality as well. Teens go skinny-dipping and brief visible breasts can be seen, but shown form a distance in a dark area. Teens were defiantly thinking of sex at first. Some crude joke, sex references, innuendo, etc. Constant usage of "F*ck," and "sh*t," and other language. Tucker and Dale constantly drink beer, a teen smokes, and a reference to marijuana. But overall, this film has the strong message: Never judge a book by it's cover. Tucker and Dale are kind-hearted people, save a drowning teen, and (despite the teens accusing them of being psycho killers and attacking them) try to talk things out with them. But one teen (who's parents were attacked by hillbillies) still tries to kill them, even after learning that they didn't actually do anything. Great movie for ages 13+ Iffy for 12+

Funny movie with Misunderstandings

We can all agree that the movie is Gory but it is done in a comic fashion
And ends up as a funny horrormovie there is a also a mild Nudity scene
And Strong Language but it is likely for 12+

Shaun Of The Dead For Creepy Hillbillies

Tucker and Dale is a great movie. It's one of those movies like Shaun Of The Dead and Zombieland that are excellant modern dark comedies. And although Tucker and Dale isn't nearly as good as Shaun Of The Dead, it is still pretty damn entertaining. Most of the humor comes from the exaggerated deaths, and the cluelessness of the college kids. I have to admit, from that description, it's probably as funny as it possibly could be. The actors all do a good job, the script is hilarious, and it's tone gleefully dark. There are a few flaws, however. The script, while funny, will inevitably be compared to the likes of Shaun Of The Dead, but it just does not compare. Also, the plot feels stretched even for an 80 minute film and it would've worked much better as a short film at maybe 30-40 minutes long. This leads to a final battle of sorts that felt shoehorned in to add an extra fifteen minutes to the movie. As for inappropriate stuff, there is a ton of gore, but it's all comical. Lots of death like impaling yourself in a tree limb, falling onto a spear, jumping headfirst into a woodchipper, there's a lot. The main female lead is highly sexualized at first, but as the movie goes on, you find out that she actually has a personality, unlike most horror victims and the rest of the college kids in the movie. There is also a lot of the "F" word, but, like "The Thing," it's often overshadowed by the violence and gore. But overall, this is a hilarious movie that has deserved it's cult status.

Funny, but bloody

This is an excellent, but bloody movie. It has a very good message about trying to say positive things, not negative, and messages about you are more handsome than you think you are.

Although it has this great message, there is a bit of profanity (not loads of it, but an occasional thing here and there), and violence. Although there's only one character that is actually violent, yet he never really kills anyone. The only killing is really just one mistake after another, such as not looking where you're running and impale yourself on a branch. People are seen drinking and driving. And finally, some casual flirting.

So really, a great message, that's pretty funny. 15+. Also, there's a lot of death that, if you think about it, is kind of funny. I don't think young kids should be exposed to this kind of humor.

Review by a scholar from colombus university

A great family favourite. Good for boys who are interested in zombies and under the age of 13.
