"A very funny movie."
‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"If director Michael Dowse only superficially understands his characters, he doesn't hold them in contempt."
‑ Mark Palermo, Coast (Halifax, Nova Scotia)
"Fubar is very funny, but not always in a laugh-out-loud way."
‑ Liz Braun, Jam! Movies
"The comedy is so bone-dry that it hardly feels funny at all. But it is. Kind of."
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"Exploits [headbanger] stereotypes in good fun, while adding a bit of heart and unsettling subject matter."
‑ Ryan Cracknell, Apollo Guide
"Like "This is Spinal Tap", only with more pathetic protagonists- and funnier!"
‑ Kevin N. Laforest, Montreal Film Journal
"I couldn't help but feel the wasted potential of this slapstick comedy."
‑ Barry Robison, Film Threat
"A recent favourite at Sundance, this white-trash satire will inspire the affection of even those unlucky people who never owned a cassette of Def Leppard's Pyromania."
‑ Jason Anderson, eye WEEKLY
