Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Rather than crafting a movie that's so bad it's good, writer-director brothers Jason and Brandon Trost have come up with something that's just plain bad -- and boring, and repetitive."
‑ Christy Lemire, Associated Press
"It falls all over itself to lampoon its midnight-movie forebears even as it borrows their contrivances."
‑ Andy Webster, New York Times
"The film only embraces the most superficial aspects of the genre. The heart, the soul and the melodrama are all missing."
‑ William Bibbiani, CraveOnline
"The FP is a mostly serious, straight-faced spoof of misogynistic gangland B-movies and sports dramas, and rarely does it fail to deliver sparks of originality and sly comedy."
‑ R. L. Shaffer, IGN DVD
"The FP functions perfectly as a cult movie, but its ambition never feels bigger than to achieve that benchmark."
‑ Todd Gilchrist, The Playlist
""The FP" so desperately wants to be cultishly admired for its bad-taste rollout of wacko characters, ugly costumes and vulgar slang that it forgets to be genuinely offbeat or funny."
‑ Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
""The FP" works best as an operatic parody of mixed genres with lunacy on the fringes."
‑ Tom Keogh, Seattle Times
"Given its low budget, it's amazing "The FP" looks as good as it does. The lighting is superb, the sets highlight its post-apocalyptic atmosphere, and the score ridiculous. "The FP" has cult classic written all over it and it knows it."
‑ Chris Sawin,
"The FP works for its audience, a rowdy crowd of midnight movie fans willing to put up with over-the-top silliness, bad performances, and general lunacy."
‑ Brian Tallerico,
"You'll have more fun hosting your own Dance Dance Revolution battles than watching The FP."
‑ Ethan Alter, Television Without Pity
"You need to find a room full of people who get the joke and see this movie there, because audiences will be laughing so hard they'll be screaming."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"Neither obliviously dreadful enough to be "so bad it's good,'' nor intentionally tongue-in-cheek enough to be funny."
‑ Ethan Gilsdorf, Boston Globe
"I missed the train when The FP was first leaving the station, but I'm firmly on-board now..."
‑ Mark Bell, Film Threat
"There is some serious talent in front of and behind the camera and with a better script they might be able to create something funny and unique."
‑ JimmyO, JoBlo's Movie Emporium
"The film's goofy heart and soul (yes, it has one) is what sticks with you in the end and makes this crazed film into a potential cult-movie masterpiece."
‑ Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle
