Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"No snob to low-brow ridiculousness when it's actually unexpected, I'll admit to being amused exactly once."
‑ Aaron Hillis, Village Voice
"There are stupid stoner comedies and then there are stupid stoner comedies that ain't funny, and the latest effluvium from Adam Sandler's Happy Madison production company is mostly a bummer."
‑ Ty Burr, Boston Globe
"Hatefully stupid and unfunny."
‑ Dave White,
"After watching Strange Wilderness, you may want to soak your feet in a tub of live piranhas, just for laughs. You'll find it a lot more fun than anything in this movie."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"Players like Hill, Long, and Zahn have natural comedic ability, but there's honestly not much they can do with such weak material."
‑ Christopher Null,
"This movie is designed for an audience that likes gross-out humour and endless silliness."
‑ Philip Marchand, Toronto Star
"Underachieving even by the standards of stoner comedies, Strange Wilderness is so inert that it doesn't so much unreel on screen as loiter there, giggling at its own outrageousness."
‑ Matt Zoller Seitz, New York Times
"Any resemblance to comedy is purely coincidental and unintentional. The only reason to chuckle is to prove you haven't died while watching it. Its credits should be handed to a mercenary. It's not a film. It's the Zeroes' worst pop-culture excretion."
‑ Nick Rogers,
"What can you say about a film when its most memorable scene is the one in which Steve Zahn's private parts get caught up in a turkey's throat?"
‑ Louise Keller, Urban Cinefile
"A few cute gags aside, this is an exercise in stupidity aimed at those who find 15 different names for a bong to be funny."
‑ Ryan Cracknell, Movie Views
"Despite the presence of funny guys such as Zahn, Garlin, Justin Long and Jonah Hill, along with veteran character actors Ernest Borgnine, Joe Don Baker and Robert Patrick, the movie fails to be even passably funny."
‑ Kevin Crust, Los Angeles Times
"Laughter is definitely an endangered species where Strange Wilderness is concerned."
‑ Michael Rechtshaffen, Hollywood Reporter
"It's just plain lazy (or incompetent or both) filmmaking from start to finish."
‑ Brian Webster, Apollo Guide
"I would say 20% of the jokes work and the rest fell flat!"
‑ Austin Kennedy, Sin Magazine
"Really not very funny. Unless you're a moronic frat boy who's been smoking a lot of wacky backy, in which case it's probably hilarious."
‑ Daniel Etherington, Film4
