Year One has one joke, but it's a good one, played for many variations over the course of an often very funny comedy.
67
This is just silliness run mildly wild.
63
Dopey but resourceful yukfest.

It's the knockabout biblical lark Mel Brooks never got around to making.

At best it's a bit like Mel Brooks' "The History of the World Part I" (except Ramis stops somewhere in Genesis); at worst it's like a Scary Movie-type parody of John Huston's "The Bible."

The humor, largely centered around bodily functions and bathroom habits, is almost exclusively sophomoric.

Miami Herald
Year One is not really THAT bad and not ENTIRELY without laughs.

The Hollywood Reporter
A lot of comedic talent founders in this new Harold Ramis comedy that doesn't exactly recall his glory days of "Caddyshack" and "Groundhog Day."
38
Its script isn't worth the papyrus it's inscribed on.

I found the most extreme material to be so tasteless that it voided all comedy.
20
During all of the film's oh-so-long 97 minutes, Year One, barely earns a snicker.
