Movie Reviews

Docu-comedy about not so funny comedians...
Kim Anehall | Chicago, IL USA | 04/30/2004
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Hacks is depicted in a documentary style which tells the audience a story about Lucius Diamond and Baxter Hutz, two incompetent hustlers, who run a pathetic comedy agency. The agency has signed on a bunch of terrible stand-up comedians and they are preparing themselves for a tour and a comedy festival. On the trip, the audience gets to know the comedians and soon realizes that a joke does not have to be funny. As the story goes on, the audience will find out what it takes to be a real comedian and not a pretender. The truth is that it takes personality, talent, and skill to be funny, which none of the comedians in the film seem to possess. There are moments in the film that are hilarious, but those are the moments when they are not performing. When they perform it is almost depressing to think that these comedians are actually trying to be funny on stage, and this actually becomes an entertaining farce. At the end, the audience is left with a cinematic experience that is fairly interesting."

"I bought this movie a couple of weeks ago for the simple fact that 1) Jim Gaffigan is in it and 2) the critical reviews available online are all very strong.

I think if you bother to watch the movie more than once (which I did because there are so many things happening so fast) you'll see that it's not some sophomoric collection of potty humor. It's actually very sad, uncomfortable and subversive.

This movie is not for everyone, CLEARLY, but if you like raw, independent, dark films, then this is definitely for you. Highly recommended."
One of the future classics!

"If you are a fan of Spinal Tap, you will LOVE this movie. It's not like anything else - very unique in its humor. It's very,very dark and very smart. You'll pee yourself laughing. TONS of amazing extras and one of the best director's commentaries I've ever heard. Well worth the cost."

"GOD IS THIS SUBVERSIVE! This is the most riotously funny discovery to rock me off the chair. If comedy means your face hurts from laughing and your mind is @#$%^&, then OMIGOD, why isn't this in theaters?!?!?! Better that it ISN'T. Let it be a way cool little secret that no one else knows about...."
