Reviews

Variety - Dennis Harvey
An unstable -- if mostly painless -- mix of low comedy, stabs at higher silliness, and schmaltz.

The Hollywood Reporter - Michael Rechtshaffen
While the likable Seth Green, Matthew Lillard and Dax Shepard are definitely up to the comic excursion, the picture charts an uncertain course between wild and mild, eventually running aground in a pile of male-bonding muck.
40
L.A. Weekly - Unnamed
Burt Reynolds, whose near-vaudevillian comic timing, is refreshing but not enough to carry the picture.

Los Angeles Times - Unnamed
Despite some agreeably idiotic moments, Without a Paddle is also mostly without a rudder. Its few memorable highlights end up floating haplessly in a genial but uninspired and watery plot.
38
Chicago Tribune - Unnamed
Led by a trio of dumb, dumber and dumbest, Without a Paddle is a testosterone comedy that might just as well be titled "Without a Brain Cell."
