Metacritic Score

  • 88

    Slant Magazine Joseph Jon Lanthier

    Tim Heidecker's Swanson does not amuse us in spite of the pity he inspires but because of it.

  • 70

    Variety Justin Chang

    For a catalog of aggressively stupid, socially deviant male behavior, Rick Alverson's cheekily titled The Comedy is not without a certain subversive intelligence.

  • 50

    The Hollywood Reporter

    The anomie of entitlement pushed to poisonous extremes is the basis of this provocation, which is as frustrating as it is intriguing.
