Equal parts crude and dumb, but almost no parts funny.
3 February 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I laughed a couple times in this movie. That's all I can say really. Say It Isn't So is a byproduct of all the gross-out, silly, ridiculous romcoms that were popular in the early 2000s and this one doesn't differentiate itself from the pack at all. It sometimes pushes the boundaries of, "Wait, is this offensive or funny?" But even then, that doesn't even matter if the end product is actually funny, which it isn't. There are a couple chuckle-worthy moments, but they are so few and far between it's not even worth subjecting yourself to the entire 80 or so minutes of idiocy.

Acting wise, it's hard to complain. Heather Graham is great as the affable, bubbly girl and Chris Klein is passable as the cheesy, romantic guy. I'd say he's bad in the movie but the dialogue itself is so dumb I can't even fault him for it. The real standout is Richard Jenkins as Graham's father who is paralyzed and speaks in a robot voice most of the time. His character is where most of the laughs come from. Everyone else is serviceable, given the material at least.

There are hints of incest, bodily humor, gross-out gags, and the like. Some of it works, most of it doesn't. Overall though, Say It Isn't So is a swing and a miss.
