Tucker: [Dale is attracted to one of the college co-eds at the gas station, but hesitates to try to go talk to her] She's just human. Why don't you go over and talk to her?
Dale: Talk to her? What... What in the world would I say?
Tucker: I don't know... Tell her that you got a vacation home. That'll probably impress her.
Dale: Are you out of your mind, Tucker? They're college girls, and they grew up with vacation homes and guys like me fixing their toilets!
Tucker: You've gotta' have some faith in yourself, man. Girls can *smell*...

Comedy/Horror Rises Again!
22 May 2010 | by (Issaquah, WA) – See all my reviews

I just saw this tonight at SIFF in Seattle. Delightful! Hilarious, twisted, well-written and funny.

Didn't hurt that the filmmakers picked two of the funniest guys in the biz to play Tucker and Dale.

But this isn't just a farce. You end up really caring about the main characters.

And the scary character, when that person is revealed, is pretty dang scary.

Funniest thing I've seen since Zombieland, and I laughed so hard through Zombieland I thought I was gonna barf.

Do not miss this movie!
