    ★★★½

    Okay, so. This is a pretty stupid movie, and it isn't very good either. It's kinda funny but definitely not on the same level as Eli Craig's Tucker and Dale vs. Evil (which this makes me think I might have underrated). But what can I say? Sometimes all you want in life is a silly movie where Adam Scott, Bridget Everett, and Donald Faison team up to kill the Antichrist. Plus Evangeline Lilly gets to be funny! Why didn't they…

    A lot of people seem to be backing away from Donnie Darko nowadays, distancing themselves from it like it's a particularly painful memory, an unwelcome flashback to their high school days. Well, maybe so. But don't blame that on the movie. I'm not going to give it credit for profundity that it doesn't have, except that it kind of does. A mysterious puzzle of a film, but pleasingly straightforward about its oddness. Gyllenhaal, Barrymore, and Swayze doing the best work of their careers.
