    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    Surely Patton Oswalt could have leveraged all those accolades from last year's "Young Adult" into a better project than this instantly forgettable comedy. show more

    Kyle Smith New York Post

    A low-watt, low-wit comedy. show more

    Slant Magazine

    Writer-director Todd Rohal fills muddled scenes with manic amounts of jokes that all manage to land with a thud. show more

    Eric Hynes Time Out New York

    No amount of eccentric Americana (or slyly marginal inventiveness) can salvage this strangely lifeless - and largely laughless - gonzo comedy, which is doomed by a flimsy script, one-dimensional characterizations and distractingly inept child acting. show more

    Nature Calls demonstrates yet again that the real question for any bad script is not "Who wrote this garbage?" but, rather, "Who read this garbage and thought it would make a viable way to spend time?" show more

    It almost seems like harder work somehow to get this many comedians together and then turn out a movie that is only so fitfully funny. show more

    The unmitigated disaster of the camping trip just stays disastrous, the story never really finding its way from adversity to heroic redemption. show more

    Noel Murray The A.V. Club

    There's nothing wrong with the idea of trying to make a Bad News Bears for the '10s, and Rohal has the comic talent in front of the camera to do the job. In addition to Oswalt and Knoxville, he has Maura Tierney as Knoxville's wife. show more
