When a hard-luck blue-collar worker and his two best friends are mistaken for Army Reservists by a tough-talking Army sergeant, the plane set to fly them to the front lines of Iraq mistakenly drops them in the middle of Mexico to disastrous results in a freewheeling military comedy starring Larry the Cable Guy, Bill Engvall, and D.J. Qualls. Larry (the Cable Guy) has lost his job and his woman in the short span of 24 hours. Convinced that some suds and target shooting are just the right remedies for a broken, jobless heart, Larry sets out with his next-door neighbor Bill (Engvall) and their… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"If ribbing the U.S. armed forces was considered unpatriotic after 9/11, then Delta Farce proves that discussion of the Iraq War has now officially jumped the shark."
‑ Stephen Garrett, Time Out New York
"A mindless comedy where the blatant racial stereotypes are outnumbered only by the flatulence jokes."
‑ Peter Hartlaub, San Francisco Chronicle
"Dropping quietly into theaters like a sneak attack on brain cells and good taste, C.B. Harding's rickety vehicle for Blue Collar Comedy is among the first films to mine the endless War on Terror for laughs."
‑ Brett Michel, Boston Phoenix
"War in Iraq isn't funny -- neither is this movie."
‑ Sandie Angulo Chen, Common Sense Media
"It's OK to write comedies about morons%u2026as long as you don't insult the intelligence of the audience in the script."
‑ Linda Cook, Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)
"Here's a sobering thought: If every war gets the comedy it deserves, could Delta Farce, a strenuously unfunny Three Amigos knockoff, be our M*A*S*H?"
‑ Scott Brown, Entertainment Weekly
"Among the many minorities mocked are Muslims, but perhaps the people most insulted are white Southerners, who presumably are expected to embrace one whopping brain-dead metaphor."
‑ Andy Webster, New York Times
"What it really boils down to is whether you're a fan of Larry the Cable Guy. If so, you'll (I would hope) realize you're watching a pretty stupid comedy but will laugh in the appropriate parts."
‑ Kit Bowen,
"Larry the Cable Guy is not and has never been and never will be funny. The sooner everyone realizes this, the faster his movie career with go away."
‑ Jason Thompson,
"Is it funny? Not really. All of its subversive potential is wasted on [director] Harding, and even the straight-ahead farce is joyless."
‑ Marrit Ingman, Austin Chronicle
"Like Paths Of Glory, Apocalypse Now, and Platoon, Delta Farce is a difficult, harrowing work offering little relief or humor. Unlike those movies, though, Delta Farce is supposed to be funny."
‑ Steven Hyden, AV Club
"There are henpecked-husband jokes, gay jokes, turd humor, mispronounced Iraq war terms, guys asking "Who farted?" and lots more Crackel Barrel comedy."
‑ Kyle Smith, New York Post
"Whatever your pet sensitivity -- the military, rednecks, gays, Mexicans -- this movie is an equal-opportunity denigrator."
‑ Jim Lane, Sacramento News & Review
"The only farcical aspect of it is that it was greenlit in the first place."
‑ Felix Gonzalez Jr., DVD Review
"...a surefire reassurance that war is indeed hell...another prime example of ingenuity involving a box of crayons and someone's desperate idea for quick-witted lunacy."
‑ Frank Ochieng, Movie Eye
