  • Dennis Perkins

    The Spoils Before Dying is almost too well-made at times.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    Gleefully absurd and filled with terrific comic performances--Wiig and Rudolph are stand-outs in the first two episodes--The Spoils Before Dying marks another winning offbeat comedy from IFC.

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • Ben Travers

    The Spoils Before Dying is a huge step up, arguably even better than its predecessor, but it could have shed some of the weight and become truly great.

    Indiewire Full Review
  • Verne Gay

    As genre satire, Spoils is amusing. As film study, it's informative. As a viewing experience? Uneven: Sometimes funny, a little more often not.

  • David Wiegand

    Spoils Before Dying is funnier than “Babylon.” The earlier miniseries spoofed ’40s melodramas, but this year’s model takes a narrower approach, mining the staples of the even more formulaic noir films, capturing the excesses of the hard-boiled dialogue and pushing them just far enough over the edge to knock you out of your chair.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Robert Lloyd

    It is in some respects a three-hour sketch, but one made with attention to detail and an effective emotional through-line.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Tirdad Derakhshani

    The Spoils Before Dying, which lampoons Hollywood's classic films noirs of the 1940s and 1950s, is a much more assured and accomplished piece of filmmaking. But it's not nearly as wonderfully original or manic as its predecessor.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Brian Tallerico

    The Spoils Before Dying fluctuates wildly from very clever to somewhat exhausting, but it gets better as it goes along, or perhaps I just got accustomed to its unique sense of humor.

  • Nancy DeWolf Smith

    Even when it drags a tad early on, there is always something good coming down the pike.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • David Hinckley

    The Spoils Before Dying requires some time and in return offers some rewards.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Mark A. Perigard

    Spoils takes its murder mystery too seriously. While this isn’t as dour an affair as Ferrell and Wiig’s recent Lifetime debacle, “A Deadly Adoption,” a little bit more nuttiness would make this mini more a treat and not so much an endurance challenge.

    Boston Herald Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    There are, admittedly, some funny bits strewn throughout--Michael Sheen delivers one of the better moments--but even at a little over two hours of actual screen time minus commercials, this feels as padded as Ferrell’s well-stuffed wardrobe.

    Variety Full Review
  • Mark Peikert

    Most characters are reduced to a single joke repeated endlessly, under the assumption that the repetition of words or phrases constitutes comedy.

    The Wrap Full Review
  • Keith Uhlich

    Despite the occasional laughs, though, this is still a one-note premise stretched excruciatingly thin.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Glenn Garvin

    This three-hour miniseries from Will Farrell and some of his Saturday Night Live buddies is a send-up of 1950s film-noir that more closely resembles another classic Hollywood product: an overinflated boob job.
