    Carla Meyer San Francisco Chronicle

    Dax Shepard from MTV's "Punk'd," in his first major big-screen role, steals Without a Paddle. Not that it's too hard to do. show more

    Claudia Puig USA Today

    In a summer filled with dumb comedies, this might prove to be the dumbest. Think "Road Trip" meets "City Slickers." Then dial the humor down a few notches, and you're left Without a Paddle. show more

    This so-called comedy is a frayed string of anxious jokes about whether male bonding is manly or sissy. show more

    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    There are a few gross-out laughs, but Without a Paddle's gang-written script doesn't know what it wants to be. show more

    Michael Rechtshaffen The Hollywood Reporter

    While the likable Seth Green, Matthew Lillard and Dax Shepard are definitely up to the comic excursion, the picture charts an uncertain course between wild and mild, eventually running aground in a pile of male-bonding muck. show more

    Megan Lehmann New York Post

    A likable trio of actors struggles valiantly but ultimately fails to keep this dopey buddy comedy afloat. show more

    Chris Kaltenbach Baltimore Sun

    Even in a world where stupidity mixed with cliche is all too often mistaken for humor, this movie barely meets expectations. show more

    Chicago Tribune

    Led by a trio of dumb, dumber and dumbest, Without a Paddle is a testosterone comedy that might just as well be titled "Without a Brain Cell." show more

    Ty Burr Boston Globe

    Never quite as dumb as "Harold & Kumar," but it's nowhere near as smart, and that's what kills it. show more
