    About as not-funny as a comedy can get. show more

    Frank Scheck The Hollywood Reporter

    The sole laughs are scored by Robert Davi, amusingly playing it straight as a Muslim terrorist who wants to hire Malone to make a suicide bomber recruitment film. show more

    Ultimately, the problem with An American Carol is the problem with far too much political discourse in this country, left or right: It highlights the worst excesses of the opposition for the sole purpose of discrediting the vast middle. show more

    Bad enough to earn a rare spot on my hallowed list of ''The Worst Movies I've Ever Seen,'' An American Carol is testament that the country's culture wars are raging just as strongly within Hollywood as anywhere else. show more

    Even if it weren't three years too late to parody Moore (ineptly played by Kevin Farley), Moore's ridiculous tribute to Cuban health care in "Sicko" is far funnier than anything in this desperately laughless farce from David Zucker ("Scary Movie 3"). show more

    Michael Moore has nothing to fear from David Zucker. show more

    Lisa Schwarzbaum Entertainment Weekly

    A loony attack on wacko liberalism and a ding-dong defense of wacko conservatism. show more

    It's a gag-strewn, hit-and-miss affair that's not without its chuckles. show more

    Nathan Lee The New York Times

    Cheap shots and mean spirits abound, as do celebrity cameos (James Woods, Jon Voight, Dennis Hopper, Kelsey Grammer). But it's the laziness of the writing that most offends. show more

    Todd McCarthy Variety

    Conservatives score a few political points but aren't very funny in An American Carol, a cheesy spitball directed at the very large target of a Michael Moore-like filmmaker. show more

    How refreshing! After years of leftist lies and anti American hate speech it is good to see a glimpse of the truth.

    Revenge movie for the right wing. After years of bashing by the leftist media we finally have a movie that makes fun of the liberals.How can the truth be so good? Worth a visit, good matinée movie.

    Very good movie!! Very funny! Why is "W" in more theaters than AMerican Carol?? Why are the expert reviews so down on this movie?? Proves the far left in control of the media.
