Uneven, intelligent, weird, sometimes funny (more often not) - and almost consistently engaging.

It's just not very funny.

"Search Party" isn't completely without laughs, but a toxic cloud of sameness hangs over the feature, which wheezes from incident to incident, failing to build momentum through limp shock value.

Even if you invite a lot of talented people to the set, the result won't work if you don't give them a way to show why they're considered talented.

"Search Party" is a pedal-to-the-metal road trip that aims for spontaneity, but stays within the lines-even when it goes off on wacky tangents, there's never any doubt what direction it's actually headed.

The Playlist

[I]n its sitcom-like fratty humor, its waste of talented female performers ... in its sheer laziness and lack of originality, it feels like a throwback less to 2013 than to the 1990s.

This spectacularly dumb and unfunny film will likely bore even the staunchest fans of the "Hangover" movies, of which "Search" is a kind of distant, fatally impoverished cousin.

This is safe, hyper-conventional stuff, lazy enough to make you feel bad that Middleditch had to go nude for it. The best thing you can say about the movie is that men have taken their pants off for less.

The Film Stage

This is the type of comedy where the flop sweat is nearly always present as each player tries to lift the comedy, only to tragically belly-flop over and over.
