Say It Isn't So

New York Daily News
It has incest, sweaty armpits, nipple rings, drool, an amputee, a stroke victim and an engagement ring stuck in a sticky place. And Heather Graham. All that, and it's not very funny.
It's so-so. As in mediocre. Even gross-out comedies need the stink of genius.
TV Guide Magazine
Maybe gross-out romantic comedy is a shallow well, and it was simply Rogers's misfortune to find himself with a bucket full of sludge.
The movie doesn't understand that embarrassment comes in a sudden painful flush of realization; drag it out, and it's not embarrassment anymore, but public humiliation, which is a different condition, and not funny.
San Francisco Chronicle
In the same genre as the Farrellys' "There's Something About Mary" and "Dumb and Dumber," only lousy.
Simply something you don't want to touch.
F. X. Feeney
The humor stays on one low level throughout, and thus fades fast.
What a jolly comedy theme: incest.
I don't like Say It Isn't So, but I understand its karmic inevitability.
A black comedy in the form of vicarious serial punishment.
