Consensus: There's nothing good in Nothing But Trouble, a grotesque comedy that is more likely to make audiences ill than make them laugh.

For the most part, however, the humor depends upon the audience's finding the movie's repulsiveness funny.

Sheer hell.

Nick Rogers
Midwest Film Journal

A calamity by most objective measures. At best a paltry comedy. And yet ... AND YET ... the relentlessly repugnant energy here ceases to desist while you're watching and continues to persist long after you've stopped. A perversely fascinating bomb.

Occasionally, the talents of the cast burn through the haze of misfires and remembered routines.

The story turns into an extended maze with Chevy Chase and Demi Moore as the principal Nintendo-ized targets running through one tepid peril after another, while mouthing banal wisecracks.

[Nothing But Trouble] is a shot of pure weirdness that is so far off the beaten comedic path that it does exert a strange fascination that cannot be denied. You may love it or hate it but either way, you won't forget it.

Unfortunately this isn’t even half as fun as the shortest bumper-car ride.

A charmless feature-length joke about the world's most elaborate speed trap.

Candice Russell

A perfectly dreadful film.
