Hitch and Sam can rest in peace.....
2 January 2003 | by See all my reviews

....because this film is no threat to the reputations of their movies about mobile cadavers, Hitchcock's "The Trouble With Harry," an intentional black comedy, and Peckinpah's "Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia," an even funnier unintentional comedy.

"Carry Me Back" is belabored, smutty, and despite its desperate attempts to be droll, quite unfunny. The sights and scenery are interesting, but the characters keep getting in the way. My advice: skip this antipodean loser and rent either the Hitchcock or Peckinpah films.
