The film's distance from factual reality oddly enhances its bleak underlying vision. It portrays a demoralized American work force fearfully going through the motions of life while waiting without much hope for things to get better.
75
The A.V. Club
While the film's social-satire elements are flat and overly familiar, its dry absurdity is unmistakably Lynchian.
75
Groundlings alumnus Prendergast's dark comedy, drawn from on his own family experiences, is firmly rooted in messy, selfish, often-unappealing human behavior rather than self-referential irony and juvenile goofiness.
75
Eventually comes into its own as a wacky commentary on the state of America in the fifth year of the Iraq war.
70
The Hollywood Reporter
The film is an ambitious mix of slapstick, black comedy and stinging social commentary.
70
Village Voice
Catches the nation's mood of economic anxiety and workplace exploitation more pungently than anything else in theaters.
63
Strange and quirky.
50
Variety
Kabluey is short on the cutes and ca-ca jokes. But it's also short on substance, despite a watchable supporting cast and an amiable overall tenor.
50
A dark piece of whimsy that enchants and befuddles in equal measure.
30
Quirky and undisturbed, unaffected and unaffecting.
