Consensus: Like the best horror/comedies, Tucker & Dale vs. Evil mines its central crazy joke for some incredible scares, laughs, and -- believe it or not -- heart.

Here's something you don't see every day: a genial, politically correct splatter comedy.

It's time we all toss our nine bucks into the proverbial woodchipper (don't ask me what proverb) and spit out enough money to make Tucker & Dale and other truly deserving, truly funny indie flicks a blazing success.

Students of the Little Movie Glossary may find it funny how carefully "Tucker and Dale" works its way through upended cliches.

With originality to spare and two hillbillies that are actually likeable, the movie is enjoyable in theory but it's one joke plot gets old.

How did this happen? I can't believe I'm saying this, but if you want to have a nice, relaxing time, watch this gruesome horror movie.

This was way more sweetly charming than it had any right to be.
