Jennifer Coolidge (American Pie) and Mike White (School Of Rock) join a hysterical cast of oddball characters in Gentlemen Broncos.

"Fitfully amusing.  Lou Lumenick, New York Post

Expert Review Gentleman Broncos - Blu-Ray DVD Review
By: Chris Beaumont Blogcritics.org Reviews
Published on: 3/8/2010 3:57 PM
I remember seeing the trailer for Gentleman Broncos and thinking it looked like something I really wanted to see. It appeared quirky, bizarre, funny, and oddball. Right up my alley. Then I found it was from director Jared Hess and written by Hess and his writing partner and wife Jerusha Hess. Now, if those names sound familiar, they should. They broke out back in 2004 with the hit Napoleon Dynamite. A few years later they turned Jack Black into a wrestler in Nacho Libre. Gentleman Broncos is the next in their run of films based on quirky characters and slightly off settings. Can they keep their streak of interest alive?...read the full review

New York Post 5 of 10
To start with the positive, Jemaine Clement of Flight of the Conchords is very funny -- mostly -- as Dr. Ronald Chevalier, a pompous, famous writer of fantasy novels whose latest effort is turned down by his publisher for being out of touch with his teenage market...A panicked Dr. Chevalier simply picks up the manuscript of "Yeast Lords: The Bronco Years," submitted to him by high school student Benjamin Purvis (Michael Angarano) for a competition...The good doctor changes character names and the title (to "The Chronicles of Brutus and Balzaak") before shipping it off to the delighted publisher as his own work...Benjamin is blissfully unaware of this, having sold "Yeast Lords" to the sexually ambiguous filmmaker/performer Lonnie (Hector Jimenez of "Nacho Libre") for a no-budget VHS adaptation that ramps up the already blatant homoeroticicm of Benjamin's story...While Gentlemen Broncos is not without its charms -- Sam Rockwell plays Benjamin's hero, who loses his gonads and prances around in pink latex amid low-tech special effects -- it tests your patience even at 90 minutes...The film centers around the ultra-passive Benjamin, who makes Napoleon Dynamite look like a bundle of energy by comparison...Filmmakers Jared and Jerusha Hess' endless ridicule of Benjamin and his single mom (Jennifer Coolidge) -- who hand-crafts hideous rayon nightgowns and giant popcorn balls in their geodesic-dome home -- seems a lot less than affectionate...Gentlemen Broncos is fitfully amusing, especially when Benjamin finally gathers up enough energy to confront Dr. Chevalier...But mostly it's content to coast along on quirk. Mike White plays Benjamin's beyond-weird "guardian angel," who fondles a white snake in one scene...Amateur psychologists will have a field day with the endless scene in which Benjamin's chaste love interest (Halley Feiffer) offers him a generous squirt from a giant bottle of hand lotion. - Lou Lumenick

Chicago Sun-Times 5 of 10
As an amateur collector of the titles of fictional novels in movies, I propose that this one has the worst of all time: Yeast Lords: The Bronco Years. You say you smiled? Me, too, and there are precious few smiles and laughs in Gentlemen Broncos, which is not a very good movie title, either, although it might work for an X-rated film. The author of Yeast Lords is a teenager named Benjamin, who writes science fiction and idolizes a famous sci-fi novelist named Dr. Ronald Chevalier as much as I once, and still do, admire the Good Doctor Asimov...Benjamin Purvis (Michael Angarano), the sci-fi obsessed teen, lives in a Buckydome house with his mother, Judith (Jennifer Coolidge), and let's pause right here to observe that Jennifer Coolidge, here and in Werner Herzog's forthcoming "Bad Lieutenant," possesses what I like to think of as the Walken Factor...Benjamin sells the film rights to his work to Tabatha and her friend Lonnie (Hector Jimenez), who is the Masha to her Rupert Pupkin. They plan a production that promises to be a mumblecore version of "Star Wars," and of course there are problems with Dr. Ronald Chevalier...This film, Benjamin's novel and the doctor's rewrite inspire different versions of the fictional hero under various names, and these fantasy sequences are sometimes amusing, but they seem free-standing and a little forlorn. They do suggest, however, that the worst movie title in history would be Yeast Lords: The Bronco Years: The IMAX Experience. - Roger Ebert
