Gentlemen Broncos
Aspiring sci-fi author and awkward home-school student Benjamin is over the moon when he attends a writing camp where he gets to meet his hero, writer Ronald Chevalier. Unfortunately, the pompous hero to the geeks is fresh out of ideas, and instead of reading Benjamin's manuscript - a high-adventure tale called Yeast Lords - and giving the student some notes, Chevalier steals the story and uses it for his next book. Now if he ever wants to help his mom jumpstart her business as a modest lingerie designer, or impress the bewitching Lonnie, Benjamin has to prove that the author pilfered his… More

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 [UK]
"Veers from hilarious to unwatchable."
‑ Nick Hasted, Little White Lies
