Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Berg is so in love with his escalating shock tactics that they quickly cease to shock."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"It's extremely lousy material, but these guys make the most of it."
‑ Paul Tatara,
"Very Bad Things is a horrible hoot. It is one of those movies that put you through the wringer. It doesn't tickle the funny bone -- it pulverizes it. You don't know whether to laugh, gasp, or walk out."
‑ Tony Macklin,
"A Swiftian satire on white yuppies -- it's American Psycho with five psychos."
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
"...the film wages a war against one's moral senses in a story that's unforgettable."
‑ Dwayne E. Leslie, Boxoffice Magazine
"...hollow, simple-minded and about as profound an experience as stepping in a pile of road kill."
‑ Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
"Peter Berg's Very Bad Things isn't a bad movie, just a reprehensible one."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Very Bad Things is a deliciously nasty morality tale that simply warns viewers that what goes around comes around."
‑ Beth Accomando,
"A vicious, disturbing black comedy that delivers a wickedly entertaining ride if you don't take it too seriously."
‑ Chuck O'Leary,
"The trouble is that Berg doesn't seem sure how to draw matters to a close."
‑ Xan Brooks, Sight and Sound
"The gross-out humor lacks edge, the guilt never kicks in, and the outrages are predictable. It's one flat brewski."
‑ J. Hoberman, Village Voice
"Disappointing film, directed by a good actor, Peter Berg, who thinks his tale is clever and witty"
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
" of the more effective black comedies to come around in quite some time."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"His [Berg] one serious mistake is to confuse gore with terror."
‑ Margaret A. McGurk, Cincinnati Enquirer
"There are some hysterically funny bits, but the excessive violence sometimes kills the laughter."
‑ Stephen Farber, Movieline
