Rank it.

I have to say 6 / 10 for this one. It didn't really have many memorable moments. No belly laughs throughout.

I'd give it nine stars. This one really clicked with me for some reason.

I gave it the 5/10. Really wasnt impressed, it actually angered me. We all have that one movie or two, that you think shouldnt be riffed, well this was mine. I did go into it with some confidence that they must have done a good job on it, but I thought it was very mediocre. Sorry guys, really fell flat with me. Think this it the first time I given something less than a 7/10.  :-\

8 out of 10.  Good riff, especially the last half hour.  First time seeing the movie, and i have to say it really is bad.  The whole hand held camera thing is a terrible decision for any major motion picture.  The movie would have been good had it been filmed in its tradtionaly style.

I'll give it an 8. On the movie, I can't stand a movie that doesn't tell you the big picture is (2001 an exception). Sure, after watching this, I jumped to imdb to figure out the big picture (sea creature, fireproof, the meaning of "Cloverfield").  Maybe a short intro and coda could've helped it. If I ever see this movie again, it'll be too soon. Maybe once every six months, and with the RIfftrax.

Love the movie itself, was skeptical as to whether or not it would work as a riff. I was pleasantly surprised by it's funny- not a lot of BELLY LAUGHS, but a lot more actual "HAH"s than your average riff. Good job, sirs. 8/10, added another layer of enjoyment to a great movie.

I don't know if I can tolerate watching this film ever again, even with the Rifftrax. I must say the preview video made me laugh a lot. Maybe if someone is giving away free copies of Cloverfield at a local wal-mart or something I will consider getting the rifftrax.

This is a great Rifftrax. It really worked for me. And the short run time of the movie makes this an easy one to pop in when I need some laughs.

7/10.  A few good laughs, mostly near the end, but the riff never seemed to get fully on track.

I've had other comments elsewhere, in the Twenty Questions section.

I went with 8/10.  First half hour was a little chaotic with the riffs going right over the dialogs, but the last half hour was filled with some amazing riffs.  Good job dudemanbrahs!

I say 5 out of 10. One of my least favorite trax to date. Nothing memorable, bland overall. I even watched it twice cause I thought I missed something.
Oh well, looking forward to I am Legend.

Since I LOATHED the movie and think it is the Emperor's New Clothes of Cinema, and I loved the riffing, I gave it a 10/10
