A film made for sadists. The movie would work as a disturbing thriller, but as a disturbing dark comedy it's just plain disturbing. Most of the intended comedy is supposed to derive from several shouting matches among the male characters, but seeing people beaten and bludgeoned to death, sawed up and thrown in luggage bags doesn't ring the ha-ha bell for me. It's all very sad, very sickening, and ultimately a depressing look at what "comedy" is(n't) these days. Great cast though.

Expressing any amount enjoyment for this movie on this website should be enough probable cause for police to search your home. It is not a dark comedy as much as it is a feel-good movie for shithead mutants.

What a vile movie. The first little bit is funny then it gets so far up its own ass. Dark comedy without the comedy. Awful. I hate.

A movie that my 13-year-old self may have found edgy and cool. But as it stands now, the movie reeks of effort and fails to shock us. The "jokes" never work, the dialog is unbearably grating, and the plot events constantly sacrifice logic for "edginess". I'm not one of those who demands characters be sympathetic, but the movie needs to give me at least one that I don't absolutely despise. Very Bad Things doesn't do that. An irritating, stupid movie.

Revels in its own vile misogyny. A movie for wankers addicted to the Grand Theft Auto franchise.

One of the best dark comedies of all time. Sometimes the tension gets so thick you just want to turn it off. Really well done.

This film is brilliant, but be forewarned, leave your morality at the door. It's utter irreverence allows the film to dwell in the contemptible nature of stereotypes, creating moments of disturbing hilarity. You feel very bad for laughing, but if you do, you just won't stop. With this film, Berg reminds us that even the horrors of life are objectively funny. If you can't laugh at very bad things, you damn well know you shouldn't be watching this film.

Three can keep a secret if two of them are dead - as brought to you by characters I hated. How did I ever come to love Jeanne Tripplehorn? Her movies are garbage.

Rather than innocent victims they should have buried every reel, videotape and DVD ever made of this film deep in the wasteland of the Nevada desert, preferably that of a nuclear test site so that we could wipe the very existence of this scourge of a film off the face of the planet. (Let's see them put THAT blurb on your movie posters!)

In plain English, I liked it. All of the characters are equally despicable, and it is simply fun to watch them get what's coming to them.

The scene where the whore gets accidentally killed is pretty funny. It's mostly downhill after that, which is too bad, since the whore getting killed is one of the first things to happen.

Cameron Diaz played a very nontypical (for her, anyway) bitchy crazy person, and the cast kept this movie going. Kinda like a dark version of Meet the Parents, where one lie just leads to another.

Although Christian Slater proves an inimitable presence as his character's sociopathy gradually emerges, the film does the horror part a little too well. A death scene early in the movie came out so disturbing that it negatively colored my view of the entire rest of the film. The repetition of the rest of the film didn't do much to make that feeling go away.

I enjoy watching Christian Slater in dark comedies. Cameron Diaz does a great job as well. Overall, it sort of played the same concepts over and over and lost some of its appeal along the way, but it had a solid ending. Worth a watch if you like dark comedies

plays at being somewhere between the work of a genius or the work of a maligned juvenile, it finally lands itself firmly in the latter category. there are moments where the black comedy shows clearly and i took what i could and laughed heartily at these rare instances. for the most part, though, it's just malicious to be malicious.

Pretty damn good bit of dark comedy, watch this and you'll see where quite a few of The Hangover's ideas came from. The cast is great for the film, as there are a few nutballs who can let loose here.

If not the cleverest or wittiest of the 90s "snowball" black comedies, this may hold the achievement as nastiest and most pitiless; for its unflinching audacity, it scores some decent guilty laughs, aided immeasurably by a fine cast hamboning it right over the top, which is where this material needs to go. Semi-surprising highlight: Diaz's awesome Bride-zilla, with her performance compensating for a lack of development to her character (though that final shot makes up for a lot!)

Deceptively starting off as a below par "The Hangover"-type movie more than a decade before "The Hangover", "Very Bad Things" soon veers off into total batshit crazy territory. The almost constant hysterics, absence of laughs and surprising amount of rawness can be a little tough to swallow, however Christian Slater gives a great performance and the film should be commended for its uncompromising plot, ridiculous finale and scenes of startlingly visceral violence and realistic mental breakdowns.
