Branson Reese’s review published on Letterboxd:
It's sort of charming how mean spirited this is. I think if almost anybody other than Eli Roth had made this lines like "why would you wanna kill squirrels?" "Cuz they're gay" would get more credit for being a joke at the characters' expense rather than proof that this is a movie for dumb frat guys by dumb frat guys. I dunno. In retrospect Eli Roth as a spiky haired stoner with a soul patch is such a funny and spiteful performance but I can see how at the time he might've just read as a "normal guy" misfire. It was 2002. Everybody was so scared and confused.
