Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The desperately unfunny kidnapping farce King's Ransom is the cinematic equivalent of trampled chewing gum on a subway platform.
Rotten: Basically an improv scene sprawling to feature length.
Rotten: The scenarios are halfway convincing and at times even passably clever; they are never, however, especially funny.
Rotten: Somewhere in a pitch meeting someone must have piped up: 'I know. We'll have a guy named 'King' and he gets kidnapped, see? So there's a 'ransom'! King's Ransom, get it? After that, I've got nothing.'
