Very short and very sweet. Hysterically funny! a lot of bawdy and off color humor and that is what make it terrific and funny. This movie says to hell with politically correct, BRAVO. Do you want some really great laughs? Watch this movie.

The Good Things
*A great, varied assortment of comedic sketches that makes fun of many different aspects of modern-day society, culture, and politics. Topics include such issues as terrorism, sexuality in pop music, corporate greed, and so on.
*A few good parodies (most prominently, Steven Segal parodying himself!).
*Also a good number of original sketches.
*A few funny pieces of self-parody (ie, the scenes where film critics gather around and rate the movie).
*There is a very slight story arc that ties in many of the sktis together into a bizzare finale, and ultimately presents some major themes about journalistic ethics and corporate greed (although these themes are not very strongly developed).

The Bad Things
*No characters to develop, no story to tell (but hey, it's sketch comedy, so who cares?).

The Questionable Things
*A fair amount of perversity. Expect a lot of swear words and a little bit of graphicness. Some may find it too crude, but I think it's just right.
*Quite a bit of racey humor.

This eighty-minute collection of skits is probably the funniest thing I have seen in a while. The comedy is great, and presents enough satire to make it somewhat thoughtful. There is some sickness to some of it, but it's nowhere near as bad as some other comedies out there (like "Meet the Spartans" or the "Scary Movie" series). It may not be as funny as the Onion website, but I would say that this is comparable to "Saturday Night Live," "Robot Chicken," or Monty Python's "Meaning of Life."

The disc has okay video and sound quality. It has ten minutes of deleted scenes (which are really good) and outtakes.

This movie is dumb. And for me that's a good thing. Some of the skits are horrible and others remain quotable for quite a while, but it's short and doesn't overstay it's welcome. I'm probably one of the few that actually likes it, though I can see it's flaws. Come in with LOOOOW expectations and you might have a good time.

Now this is a movie! I bought this movie back in 2010. Every year, once a year, I put this in the DVD player and prepare for a night of laughter. If you like the Onion news website, this movie is for you. It's the website, in video. Dumb, fake news stories galore. Some sketches go on a bit long, but overall this movie is a riot. If you have seen this movie, the cruise ship and taffy sketches are the greatest! As well as the basketball player....

I crack up thinking about some of these sketches. Don't expect high brow humor. This stuff is dumb, but hilarious. Classic Onion comedy, great buy.

This movie is hilarious. Great vignettes that occasionally run together, kind of in the style of Kentucky Fried Movie or something like Mr. Show. I have no idea why this isn't more popular - maybe because it doesn't necessarily have the same tone/style as the onion - but it is so good. I make people watch this and I think every one has loved it and been shocked that they hadn't heard of it.

As a more thorough review has already been posted here, I'll keep it brief when I say that I was fully disappointed by this film. I'm a huge fan of the Onion newspaper and the Onion online, especially when I rushed out to rent this movie the first day it was available (good thing I didn't buy it). The trailer that has been circulating the internet for some time is hilarious, but captures the only good scenes from the entire feature. Most segments are long, redundant, and unfunny, and although they are tied together in the end, the movie is missing the charm that I have come to expect from the Onion's caliber of work. Overall, rent this DVD if you have to, but it's something that should remain on the shelves.

This movie is really really funny. It's not "the greatest thing ever made" but it's still pretty damned hilarious. It's a great parody. I rented it hoping it was exactly what it was: a variety of parodies with a plot mixed in. No, it's not the paper.........it's a movie based on the Onion style of viewing the world. If you have ever seen Kentucky Fried movie this will seem like an updated companion piece. You really need to go into watching this movie with these things in mind. It's just a good ride. The movie isn't high-brow humour that's meant to be the best in the world but you'll get a chuckle out of it. I've been waiting for this for a while since I saw a preview on another DVD I rented. I know all my friends who are ZAZ (Zucker, Abrahams and Zucker) fans will love this and I am going to buy it so we can all watch it.
