Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Between Mr. Thornton's wry performance and Tami Reiker's nuanced wide-screen photography, you half-expect Woodcock to deliver more than formulaic laughs.
Rotten: This may be the most laugh-free comedy of the year.
Rotten: This movie makes a much better case study for aspiring entertainment executives than it does a cinematic experience. What it most emphatically is not is a date movie.
Rotten: A dreary and depressing alleged comedy that takes a talented cast and a promising germ of an idea, and kills it dead.
This movie is hilarious!!
Billy Bob at his best
A fun romp --- Billy Bob reprising the role he's played so well in Bad Santa and other movies, the endlessly grouchy, slighlty dangerous guy who makes life miserable for those around him. Same-old, same-old, but I never get tired of it.
That movie sucked
