Severance

(2006) ***1/2

I wanted to love this horror-comedy about a teambuilding retreat gone drastically awry, but despite good acting and entertaining dialogue (and one hilarious boob moment), there wasn't quite enough comedy or horror for my taste.

So funny! We must have been watching it at almost the same time...ha!

I would think that was the perfect "biddy" amount of horror!

I thought I was seeing double. This was a fun film, glad to see its finally getting some attention.

i know, riot! somehow, not quite enough horror for this biddy, no objection to the quality, but it was kind of spread out.

But there's a boob moment! You said!

i can vouch for the boobs.

it's a slasher flick -- few traditional slashers are actually *scary*. almost none of the friday the 13ths, almost none of the elm streets. only the most recent texas chainsaws.

so yeah, if the gags don't work on you, i can see being underwhelmed.

obviously, they completely worked on me. but that's why i have my own review.

And a "hilarious boob moment" didn't push the review higher?? I can hardly believe it!
