Without A Paddle
Just as the old saying goes, a trio of hapless city-dwelling friends (Seth Green, Matthew Lillard, and Dax Shepard) find themselves spiraling out of control up a very brown river in this raucous comedy from Little Nicky director Steven Brill. Heading out for a weekend canoe trip in search of an elusive 200,000-dollar treasure, the trio must contend with everything from raging rapids to backwoods mountain men if they're ever going to uncover the secret of the missing booty. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Without has all the freshness of moldering Playboys stashed under a mattress, but it evokes what few boys-will-be-boys larks can: chumminess."
‑ Scott Brown, Entertainment Weekly
"Forget being up a raging creek without a paddle, these poor losers are lost in a wilderness that permits no comedy."
‑ Geoff Pevere, Toronto Star
"Even a paddle can't keep this movie from sinking."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"Gets into the male bonding mode with a casual, instinctive flair that breathes more life into the Steven Brill comedy than it may actually merit."
‑ Prairie Miller, Long Island Press
"Average comedy, the acting is fine, but the script is pretty lame and it doesn't have a lot of good jokes."
‑ Robert Roten, Laramie Movie Scope
"How do you siphon the laffs from a surefire gut-busting premise like city slickers stuck in the sticks? ... you assemble a cut-rate Three Stooges, inject tired '80s nostalgia and some moralistic goo about carpe-ing the diem."
‑ Mark Holcomb, Village Voice
"Without a Paddle wants to fascinate us with our own repulsion, and the wraparound, absurdly sentimental story is there to fill space between obvious and appalling sight gags."
‑ Tom Keogh, Seattle Times
"Shepard, Green and Lillard have good chemistry, and this bodes well considering there are three characters to play off each other rather than just two"
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"Without a Paddle is a sloppy effort, yet even a clichéd comedy could be fun if it actually delivered on laughs."
‑ Russ Breimeier, Christianity Today
"'Una de esas películas intrascendentes, de las que da lo mismo que existan o no'"
‑ Jorge Avila Andrade, Moviola
"Think Road Trip meets City Slickers. Then dial the humor down a few notches, and you're left Without a Paddle."
‑ Claudia Puig, USA Today
"The first half of the film is enjoyable but hit and miss. After that, it's just miss."
‑ Carla Meyer, San Francisco Chronicle
"Maybe the filmmakers should have called the picture Without a Laugh."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"A sloppy, lowest common denominator comedy"
‑ Mark Pfeiffer, Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema
"The cast is pleasant, which is a reasonable adjective to describe the entire project."
‑ Forrest Hartman, Reno Gazette-Journal
