Even 12-year-old girls will see it as the defensive and moronic excuse for a comedy about modern sexual politics that it is.
Dallas Morning News:
Subjects the viewer to the torture of excruciatingly unfunny dialogue, abrasively unappealing characters and mentally abusive situations.
We just get a lot more of the gross-out humour that is still distressingly in vogue for teen-oriented movies.
New York Times:
If Judith ... were asked to render a diagnosis of what's wrong with Saving Silverman, she might note that it displays a pathological fear and hatred of women.
Los Angeles Times:
Maybe they actually had fun doing this film, but if so, this feeling is likely to be contagious only to those who like their movies relentlessly mindless.
You'd have to go back to November to Little Nicky to find a movie that approaches this for dreckiness.
In one rotten production ... all involved have managed to create the most unlikable, man hating, woman hating, unfunny idiots since Whipped.
There is nothing in the personalities of J.D., Wayne or Darren that makes me believe that they don't deserve to be slapped upside their heads for being pathetic losers.
Pretty consistently funny, and that's about all one can ask from this kind of motion picture.
So bad in so many different ways that perhaps you should see it, as an example of the lowest slopes of the bell-shaped curve.
Darren appears to be so idiotic that he's hardly worth saving.
Despite an early, zesty deluge of gags ... it soon settles down to an anxious man-a-thon.
Expends a moderate budget and several attractive young performers to absolutely no consequence.
