Consensus: Potty humor and juvenile antics keep this workplace comedy from being particularly funny or memorable.

Elizabeth Weitzman
New York Daily News

Thirteen-year-old boys big enough to sneak into R-rated movies are presumably the prime audience for this witless comedy from the Broken Lizard troupe.

New York Post

This fratty National Lampoon-style comedy (written by and starring the Broken Lizard troupe of comics who made Beerfest and Super Troopers) is funny more often than not. Worth checking out on video.

It has its share of funny moments. But it also has its share of tired ones.

If you're in the mood for buffoonery, you'll probably enjoy this dumb-but-funny marathon of back-stabbing, physical gags, potty humor and appealing cast chemistry.

Washington Post

Much of the film's humor hovers around crotch level. If jokes about mental illness, terminal disease and sex with orangutans sound funny to you, go for it.

You would think any movie with the word "salmon" in the title would have to be funny. Think again.

Jeffrey M. Anderson
Common Sense Media

The ensemble cast is fresh-faced and ready to embarrass themselves with an endless string of vulgar, profanity-filled, and sex-related dialogue, even if they aren't quite ready to deal with adult relationships or emotions.
