Cinema Crazed

Hits all the right notes in comedy, light down to Earth drama, and a resulting tasteful comedy that's worth watching.

A good-natured comedy that isn't particularly interesting or, for that matter, very funny.

...a whole lot better than one might've expected.

my biggest complaint about the film is that it was too soft

It's a bold idea, taking mental handicap as a backdrop for a story about a man's growing up, but this film chickens out as soon as it begins. Nothing is real, nothing is at risk.

Knoxville não é um grande ator, mas o filme é suficientemente divertido (ainda que não engraçado) e tem um bom coração.

Navel-scratching slobs won't enjoy this any more than navel-gazing snobs once they catch a whiff of its overwhelming timidity.

Hilarious comedy with a superb script and strong comic performances - this is undoubtedly the funniest comedy of the year.

Shadows on the Wall

Knoxville gives an amazingly risky performance--how many actors would have dared to do this?

With Knoxville in the lead, it's condescending, unoriginal, and boorish.

Too bad its good intentions only go so far. The compositions are visually flat, and the movie simply isn't very funny

These guys are laugh-out-loud funny, not because they're being belittled, but because they're finally getting a chance to show a sense of humor on-screen.

Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema

Considering all of the jackass things [Knoxville's] done on his way to fame, his presence in The Ringer helps the film challenge the idea of what is normal and what is intellectually disabled.

A director and cast who all seem to be in on the joke come as close to success as anyone could have with a premise that's finally just ... unfilmable.

So blandly predictable, so shamelessly manipulative, so flatly directed and so unfunny that it's impossible for its good intentions to carry the day.

An uncomfortable intermingling of message movie and gross-out comedy, a sporadically funny vehicle that indicts its audience for laughing. Come on, guys. You can't have your fun and eat it too.

The worthwhile bits are few and far between. In the rush to avoid exploiting the athletes, the filmmakers have stuck it to the audience instead. Not funny.
