Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: It may possibly be that Mr. Spielberg has chosen gigantic size and unlimited quantity as his comedy method in the awareness that he has no gift whatsoever for small-scale comic conceits. – Vincent Canby, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Rotten: Unworkable farce, it maybe, but it is also blessed with the buzz of brilliance. – Ian Freer, Empire Magazine, Jun 24, 2010

No Subtitles!!!! Beware

I rented this movie the other day to watch on a flight. If you haven't seen the movie, a large portion of it is in Japanese (and some German) and NONE of those scenes have any subtitles. I even turned on the Closed Captioning and nothing popped up. So, be warned, you may miss a lot of this movie if you rent it.

make it buyable
