Dopey but resourceful yukfest.

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

Variety
Lacks seismic guffaws but elicits many mild smiles.

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

Year One isn't dreadful; it just isn't nearly as funny as it hopes to be.

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."
25
A dreary experience.

During all of the film’s oh-so-long 97 minutes, Year One, barely earns a snicker.
