Outrageously bawdy tale based on the classic medieval work, The Decameron. Not for prudes or defenders of the faith...only iconoclasts will enjoy this sendup of back-biting, sex-starved medieval nuns. Loved Fred Armisen's depiction of a bishop stunned by the antics he stumbled upon when he makes a routine visit to the cloister.

Blechhhh. Medieval mean girls, constantly forcing themselves on a poor servant. This should have come with a R-rating.

I wanted to like this movie so much more than I did. The cast is stellar and the story line could have been really funny. It's just missing that certain something to pull it all together.

I really enjoyed this offbeat film with a good cast for a small indie production. If you can make it through the first 20 minutes and get over the non-medieval language, you'll find a strange, funny film.

There might be humor potential in the story, but even the funniest joke is only as good as the telling. Weak acting, monotone dialogue, and dismal photography make this too much like a high-school film project for me.

Uh-oh, some nuns have been naughty! Basically, this is Monty Python does Boccaccio's "Decameron." It's pretty silly and juvenile, but it's fun and the cast is great. Aubrey Plaza, Alison Brie, Dave Franco, Nick Offerman, John C. Reilly, Molly Shannon, Adam Pally, one half of Garfunkel & Oates, and the annoying British woman from "Girls" star. Jeff Baena, who is Plaza's boyfriend, wrote and directed.

All you need to know in advance is that the movie is based on Boccaccio's "Decameron", and the rest follows as a matter of course.

For some reason, the DVD case (Mongrel) states this fact precisely nowhere, thus contributing to many viewers' false expectations.

I'm a big fan of John C. Reilly but he must have signed up for this adaptation of Boccaccio's Decameron for a friend or an opportunity to make some quick cash. Or maybe he should fire his agent. It's truly ghastly. (Though I did think the donkey played her part well). Other than some mild shock value from nuns effing and blinding, it's a boring, amateurish waste of time. It's also reminiscent of movies made in the 1970s, perhaps inspired by a previous (1971) adaptation of Boccaccio's Decameron.. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0065622/ Anyway, if I have given the impression that I didn't like `Three Little Hours,' and that it's awful: good! (Which puts me at odds with a lot of professional film critics, many of whom liked it).

This is the sort of movie that comedy nerds and medieval literature nerds have been waiting for. Based on The Decameron - a deeply influential piece of early Italian literature - and presented through the lens of contemporary comedic voices like John C. Reilly, Kate Micucci, Nick Offerman, and Aubrey Plaza, it's a hilarious tale of human imperfections, keeping up appearances, and what happens when lies finally catch up with you. The acting is on point, and all the dialogue was improvised, which leads to some delightfully unexpected laugh out loud moments.

This movie is pathetic--who orders garbage like this for the library? Everything is fucking this and fucking that, drunken priest, explanations of going down on, no humour, I quit there.

It's so surprising to me how some people like a movie and other don't. The movie was garbage. Too bad, I like many of the actors. I don't mind the swearing. I like silliness, but this movie was crappy.

Not worth your time, save yourself the effort of having to turn off the DVD player.

Nuns were cursing and being rude in the first five minutes. Not my kind of entertainment turned it off.

One of the funniest films I've seen in theatres in a really long time. Seriously, the hardest I've laughed in ages.

Everything in this film is inherently ridiculous, SO super serious people need not apply.

Yea it has funny moments, but the story is everywhere. Background sound at best.
