A forgettable made-for-TV-like production.

The movie always seems to be out of sync with itself.

My first reaction to The Crew was: 'Thank goodness it was only 88 minutes.'

Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)

Once the story clicks into gear, The Crew is a lot of fun. But that doesn't happen until after the midpoint.

Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

... the worst of American popular culture; it is a lazy, condescending, formulaic film that the filmmakers didn't even bother to finish

Yeah, nothing funnier than old men farting and Viagra jokes.

Most of the jokes work well but too many of them have the ritual, predictable feel of sitcom humor.

Eric Lurio
Greenwich Village Gazette

This is pure sitcom, the characters are all clichés, and if it wasn't for the situation there'd be no jokes at all.

January 1, 2000
Susannah Breslin
TNT's Rough Cut

Bereft of funny lines or even vaguely plausible plot twists.

January 1, 2000
David Elliott
San Diego Union-Tribune

The Crew pumps 'zany' nonsense until it drools and wheezes.

As toothless as the denture-wearing astronaut in Space Cowboys.

The movie is so mild, so benign, its humiliation-to-vindication arc so predictable and its old-folks jokes so feeble that you want them to start shooting the remake immediately.

Tired, listless and anemic.

The Crew may think it's hitting a Soprano high note but in reality it's just sleeping with the fishes.

South Florida Sun-Sentinel

Every time it delivers a clever line or appears on the verge of coming up with an original idea, a tide of cliches washes The Crew back out to sea.

George Meyer
Orlando Weekly

Basically a TV movie-of-the-week that's been dressed up with big names.

The Crew ends up feeling like soft-boiled Elmore Leonard (actually, runny Elmore Leonard) as the story goes from kicky to kicked-in-the-head.

Some movies (The Tao of Steve, say) are like Pepto for your summer blockbuster heartburn. This one is like a half-pound Macho Loco burrito. With fire salsa and extra onions.

Top Critic IconTop Critic

For all its violent gestures, this one screams safety, safety, safety, never taking anything like a real chance, never going anywhere unruly or unpredictable in its dogged allegiance to blandness.

Stuck in a dry old tributary without a paddle.
