    This is pop art by way of lowbrow slapstick, with a premise that suggests "Cast Away" meets "Weekend at Bernie's," but really feels like a lunatic's idea of a big, broad studio comedy — or maybe a mad scientist's.

    Frenzied, kinetic filmmaking is hit or miss, but The Daniels are showcasing their talents as opposed to showing off.

    Consequence of Sound Full Review
  • Peter Debruge

    At times deliriously dynamic, at others patience-grating in the extreme, the constantly inventive film fires off ideas that are as exhilarating as anything American audiences will see all year, only to lag in long swells on either side.

    Variety Full Review
  • Leslie Felperin

    It’s entirely to the directors and the two lead actors’ credit that what sounds like a bunch of overextended body humor gags of the most juvenile variety evolve, by sheer repetitious attrition, into something bizarrely poetic and strangely touching.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Tim Grierson

    Swiss Army Man is a powerfully audacious and wilfully odd odyssey that is too nervy and strangely emotional to dismiss outright but, ultimately, isn’t satisfying enough to provoke a full-throated defence, either.

    Screen International Full Review
  • Jordan Hoffman

    It’s coarse and it’s stupid, but it is, thanks mostly the two good performances and some stylish use of music and editing, a little bit moving.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Jordan Raup

    Swiss Army Man is an exceptionally unusual, one-of-a-kind achievement, worthy to seek out for that factor alone. However, if as much time was spent on refining the script as was the world-building, this could have been a magical realism fever dream like few others.

    The Film Stage Full Review
  • Russ Fischer

    Swiss Army Man is a big swing — there's no denying the risk in putting two well-known actors in a film where one plays a barely-mobile corpse — but also a big whiff that rarely connects its characters and situations to humor or empathy.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Joshua Rothkopf

    A ridiculously infantile film, one that flatters itself by intimating a deeper comment about suppressed masculinity or romantic passivity.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Jeffrey Bloomer

    Hilarious, deranged, and always alive with possibility.

    Slate Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    If I understand the intentions of writer-directors Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, the film moved me profoundly. I’ll let you come up with your interpretation – or I’ll share mine privately, to avoid spoilers – but it’s a unique look inside a troubled mind.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Soren Andersen

    Sometimes hilarious, ultimately poignant, Swiss Army Man is a picture like no other.

    The Seattle Times Full Review
  • Matt Zoller Seitz

    The Daniels have made a film that's at once a labor of love and a work of sheer arrogant nerve, one that is as likely to be described as a classic, an ambitious misfire, and one of the worst films ever made by any three people who see it together. How many movies can you say that about? Full Review
  • Jeannette Catsoulis

    Impossible to categorize, this stunningly original mix of the macabre and the magical combines comedy, tragedy, fantasy and love story into an utterly singular package that’s beholden to no rules but its own.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    Swiss Army Man is a quest movie of sorts, and also a sort of modern-day piece of absurdist theater. Samuel Beckett by way of Monty Python, it is a story that is at once rooted in the fixations of adolescence (sex, the idea of sex, bodily functions, more sex) and in the loftier firmaments of the mind.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    You might walk out of Swiss Army Man. You might tire of the flatulence and the erections and the self-conscious whimsy. But if you stick with it, there’s a chance it’ll grow on you as it grew on me — and you’ll be rewarded with maybe the best ending of any movie so far this year.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Calvin Wilson

    If you’ve been looking for a film that puts a daringly surreal spin on “Cast Away,” you’ll be in paradise.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    The easy elevator pitch on Swiss Army Man is that it’s "Cast Away" meets "Weekend At Bernie’s." Weird as that movie may sound, it’s not nearly as weird as the one actually cooked up by “Daniels,” a.k.a. Dan Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, the branded directing duo making its feature-length debut.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Christopher Gray

    Even as it invites snarky ridicule, the film dares you to buy into its singular earnestness.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    There are obviously a lot of parts here, and they don’t all fit together successfully; the shift in tone toward the end is particularly unsettling. But it’s not for lack of ambition on the part of the Daniels, nor the performances by Dano and Radcliffe.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    It’s all kind of amusing, and that would be fine but for the fact that the filmmakers offer many openings where they seem to be in search of deeper meaning.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Stephanie Merry

    [The film] isn’t for everyone. But the story is astoundingly original. During the summer months, when theaters are occupied by superheroes and sequels, that’s something worth celebrating.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Whatever its qualities and shortcomings, Swiss Army Man makes one promise it most certainly keeps. You have never seen anything remotely like it.

    Movie Nation Full Review
  • Sara Stewart

    Daniel Radcliffe continues to propel himself further from his Harry Potter past, this time via straight-up flatulence: Swiss Army Man nearly makes up with juvenile glee what it lacks in plot and coherence.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    There are times when this mindbending bromance actually achieves a twisted tenderness. There are also times when you'd like to ride Manny's farts to the nearest exit. It's your call.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    You might love it or you might hate it, but you won't soon forget it -- and you won't be able to say you've seen a movie quite like Swiss Army Man before.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Alonso Duralde

    If Swiss Army Man were a silent, scoreless effort, presented as otherworldly slapstick, or if it had employed Lil Jon to yell some obliquely connected, thematic exhortations and non sequiturs, it might have reached the heights of its music video predecessor. As it plays out, though, it smells a little too much like teen spirit.

  • Chris Nashawaty

    A hot, strange mess that never quite comes together the way it should.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Barry Hertz

    That the film – part dark comedy and part cinematic dare – is the most unusual sight you’ll encounter at the movies this year is not up for debate.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    This is a buddy movie in which one of the buddies is dead. Yet, if anything, the emotional bonding is — or wants to be — more resonant than ever.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Robert Abele

    Even with all the design-rich invention and admirably committed weirdness on display in “Swiss Army Man,” we’re still in the land of immature males, poor-me feelings and superpowers. While the movie focuses on one end of the body, you might be left sighing from the other.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Stephen Whitty

    Swiss Army Man's greatest challenge is to its audience. Just, exactly, how much will we sit still for? Endless scenes of Dano in role-playing drag, sporting a rag-mop wig and giving dating tips to a corpse? Frequent closeups of Radcliffe's furry flatulent buttocks?
