    You would think any movie with the word "salmon" in the title would have to be funny. Think again. show more

    Thirteen-year-old boys big enough to sneak into R-rated movies are presumably the prime audience for this witless comedy from the Broken Lizard troupe. show more

    The Hollywood Reporter

    The movie offers enough solid laughs to ensure a decent audience on DVD and cable. That audience could have been even larger, however, were the proceedings just a little smarter and a whole lot funnier. show more

    Funny more often than not. Worth checking out on video. show more

    Much of the film's humor hovers around crotch level. If jokes about mental illness, terminal disease and sex with orangutans sound funny to you, go for it. show more

    Early on in The Slammin' Salmon, a customer sends back a plate of undercooked fish. I can't imagine a better metaphor for a movie that is named after a fish and that is as half-baked as this one is. show more

    The film is set in a celeb-owned Miami restaurant and many of the gags--exploding entrees, the swallowing of a diamond ring, on-the-job drunkenness--feel like leftovers. show more

    Likably stoopid, the latest from comedy troupe Broken Lizard (Super Troopers, Beerfest) mines plenty of jokes from eating out and being served. show more

    Neil Genzlinger The New York Times

    Has its share of funny moments. But it also has its share of tired ones, like the subplot involving the inadvertent swallowing of a ring. show more
