Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: A mildly facetious tone limits Anderson's film to the lightweight, but the collective enthusiasm behind this debut effort still comes through. – Janet Maslin, New York Times, Mar 4, 2014

Fresh: The title refers to cheap fireworks that fizz before they flame out quietly, and that's what three Southwestern slackers do in this amiable heist movie-cum-road flick. – Steve Daly, Entertainment Weekly, Mar 4, 2014

Fresh: A little deal, this movie is like a bottle rocket itself: a big bang for the money. – Mike Clark, USA Today, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Bottle Rocket was conceived as a low-budget family affair -- it has more Wilsons than the Beach Boys -- and outside of a few cult-intensive pockets of fandom, that's where it's likely to end up. – David Hinckley, New York Daily News, Mar 4, 2014
