Schwarzenegger has a great time hamming it up, and we have almost as much fun watching him have fun.

James Berardinelli

Although the production is sporadically amusing, it feels like a 20-minute short that was expanded to feature length to its considerable detriment.

Todd Jorgenson

Arnold Schwarzenegger provides a jolt of energy to the final half-hour of this otherwise lackluster satire about bickering hitmen, as he sends up his image and action tropes in general with freewheeling bravado.

More than anything, Killing Gunther demonstrates that Christopher Guest has a lot to atone for with his pioneering of the mockumentary, which has become the lazy, go-to style for low-budget comedies.

An amusing if dispensable mockumentary from former "Saturday Night Live" funnyman Taran Killam, who wrote, directed and stars.

Won't be the comeback Schwarzenegger fans may be hoping for, but there are enough funny moments in Killam's directorial debut to augur a promising future in film comedy.

All anybody's expecting is rapid-fire absurdities and Three Stooges violence, which Killam serves up aplenty.

It's little more than a diverting sketch, but its characters justify its ninety minutes, and Killam's unremitting enthusiasm is occasionally contagious.
