Gentlemen Broncos
Benjamin, home-schooled by his eccentric mother, is a loveable loner whose passion for writing leads him on an offbeat and hilarious journey as his story first gets ripped off by the legendary fantasy novelist Ronald Chevalier and then is adapted into a disastrous movie by the small town's most prolific homespun filmmaker.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This latest from writer-director Jared Hess is another unsavoury stew of kitsch juvenilia that furthers the rot that set in between his first two films..."
‑ David Jenkins, Time Out
"A tedious and unfocused concoction involving science fiction, plagiarism and the nightgown industry."
‑ Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"I may be one of the few that loved this movie, but it was a blast, and I don't have any fear saying that."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"This deliberately amateurish, self-indulgent effort manages to be odd while rarely remembering to be funny."
‑ Allan Hunter, Daily Express
"Gentlemen Broncos is a movie that sets out to be so bad it's good, like an Edward D. Wood movie. But it ends up so slow-paced, unfunny and supercilious that it's just mind-numbingly terrible."
‑ , Daily Mail [UK]
"At one level, it is pretty bad. Then, on the other level, it is downright horrible. Unless you're an entertainment masochist, neither is very much fun."
‑ Randy Cordova, Arizona Republic
"Where do you go after rocket-propelled deer statuary, cyclops warriors in golf carts, and Mike White with a dubbed Irish accent?"
‑ Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
"Rockwell is the film's only consistently amusing presence."
‑ Nick Schager, Lessons of Darkness
"The presence of Flight of the Conchords star Jemaine Clement is the main point of interest in this so-so comedy..."
‑ Alistair Harkness, Scotsman
"Maybe it's time for Hess to go back to Napoleon Dynamite for a sequel. Although, on second thoughts, perhaps he should leave well alone."
‑ David Edwards, Daily Mirror [UK]
"Don't pay money to see it, don't waste your time if it comes on cable; you might not even want to bother reading the rest of this review."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"Jared Hess, who made Napoleon Dynamite, a film I admit I didn't get, has made a film I don't even begin to get."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Classic underdog vs smug establishment stuff, you might think. But it's all played out in puke-slathered anti-comedy sketches better suited to no-budget YouTube videos than a multimillion-dollar film."
‑ Ken McIntyre, Total Film
"Runs out of ideas after 20 minutes."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"Veers from hilarious to unwatchable."
‑ Nick Hasted, Little White Lies
