Consensus: The Little Hours gets plenty of goofy mileage out of its gifted ensemble, anchoring its ribald laughs in a period comedy with some surprisingly timely subtext.

The momentum peters out by the end, but by then its job is already done. "The Little Hours" is good for some big laughs.

True, The Little Hours is essentially a one-joke comedy - but most of the jokes under the umbrellas of that one joke are pretty damn, I mean darn, funny.

Film Threat

A medieval farce with wildly anachronistic language directed by Jeff Baena.

Whether or not Baena does right by Boccaccio, he definitely does right by Aubrey Plaza, his girlfriend and indie comedy's reigning queen of mean.

An utterly wild ride, The Little Hours covers a lot of ground in its hour and a half.

No matter how obvious the set-up - what if men and women of the cloth were ... rude and sexy??? - the cast gives every scene just enough of a deadpan spin to sell it, at least for the first hour.

The strategy works surprisingly well. I liked a lot of writer-director Jeff Baena's picture; it may be a one-joke movie, but I've seen comedies recently that would've killed for that many.

Killer Movie Reviews

A rowdy romp told with an astute sense of character and a fine sense of restraint. The tone is as deadpan as Plaza's demeanor, but just as rich, in a script that bubbles with wit as well as profanity.
