Consensus: Dragged down by a plot lacking any sense of logic and obnoxious, unsympathetic characters, this comedy is more crude and mean-spirited than funny.

Steven Rea
Philadelphia Inquirer

This full-throttle sophomoric comedy still feels forced and phony at times, which undercuts the manic efforts of its cast.

Peter Travers
Rolling Stone

The script ... smacks of desperation beyond saving.

Michael Dequina
TheMovieReport.com

The audience is one who needs saving, not the title character, in this latest entry in the look-how-dumb-I-can-get comedy sweepstakes.

Dugan ... encourages one and all to be as frat-house gross as possible.

Edward Crouse
Village Voice

Despite an early, zesty deluge of gags ... it soon settles down to an anxious man-a-thon.

James Sanford
Kalamazoo Gazette

Peppered with naked senior citizens, trash-talking nuns and a bloody plastic surgery operation, "Silverman" will be best enjoyed by people who truly believe "gross" and "silly" are synonyms for "funny"...

Curtis Morgan
Miami Herald

A relentless misfire, ineptly stealing from a number of crude but more ably executed comedies.

Nell Minow
Common Sense Media

A dumb comedy, but older teens may laugh.

Pablo Villaca
Cinema em Cena

Mulher Infernal não é apenas uma comédia mal realizada e sem a menor graça. É, também, uma produção capaz de insultar a inteligência do espectador a todo momento.

Sometimes a silly movie is really funny. This is one of those. Jack Black is perfect as J.D., a well-meaning but moronic slob. Steve Zahn is great as his… More

I think that Saving Silverman is almost so bizarre and deranged that you can't help but find fascination in what some might call friendship. It is a movie… More

Saving Silverman is funny... The actors are really good. Honestly the actors are probably what saves the movie, the plot is decent, but it's not genious.… More
