A really, really dumb film, but it's lots and lots of fun and entirely lacking in malice.

On the occasional moment when McConaughey actually works himself up to being heroic, Sahara positively soars.

Good-natured junk that amuses while it's onscreen, and evaporates almost immediately afterward.

Kaplan vs. Kaplan
April 12, 2005 action adventure film, complete with implausible situations, and perfectly timed rescues and escapes. Who cares? It's still fun, exciting and thoroughly entertaining

..a rollicking, wild adventure in which a very buff Matthew McConaughey, and his able sidekick, Steve Zahn, have more fun than any movie pair since Mel Gibson and Danny Glover

While it doesn't rewrite the genre, it finds a way to deliver with style and humor everything adventure fans want.

...the overriding lesson here is that if we don't go looking to Matthew McConaughey for gravitas, we'll probably have a good time.

[A]s delightful a bit of... hokum as we've seen in some time. You don't take it seriously for a minute... [Y]ou get a big bag of popcorn, sit back, and enjoy.

Someone had the brilliant idea to treat Sahara as a Hope and Crosby "Road" picture pasted onto a James Bond/Indiana Jones plot.

Mindless, but fun and entertaining. It's sort of James Bondish without the ridiculous special effects. I enjoyed it, mainly because of McConaughey and Zahn.

The mindless Sahara is smart enough to keep the action and wisecracks at a fevered clip.

From the opening civil war naval battle to the closing credits, I was glued to this film with non-stop action. Don't miss it!
