Laramie Movie Scope

Not a bad film, despite what you may have heard, but there is no doubt it should have been a lot better.

With gorgeous Hawaiian cinematography, a charming Owen Wilson, and a clever script, I found it eminently enjoyable.

This movie is all looks and no brains.

Simon Braund
Empire Magazine

It's sexy, offbeat fun for the most part, but it's way too laid-back for its own good and, in the end, obstinately refuses to be anything more than the sum of its highly promising parts.

Spirituality and Practice

Yet another screen adaptation of an Elmore Leonard novel, but this one just doesn't work.

Shadows on the Wall

Never comes together into anything remotely interesting.

...a dead zone of monstrous proportions that warrants nothing but yawns and groans for all 89 minutes it takes up the screen.

Dan Lybarger
Nitrate Online

Despite some inspired casting and a photogenic Hawaiian backdrop, director George Armitage can't imbue the tale with Leonard's unique balance of wit and tension.

It tends to be bouncy in that flippant, rhythmic attitude, the winkingly self-assuredness so prevalent in the actual assuredness of Get Shorty.

James Kendrick
Q Network Film Desk

glides along on the humor of its characters and the inherent intrigue created whenever multiple characters with multiple agendas all appear to be going after the same thing

After sitting through this, you'll need a vacation, too.

When the best thing you can say about a movie is that a handful of actors manage to salvage it from time to time, you're not exactly talking about a great piece of filmmaking.

Adaptation of Elmore Leonard novel doesn't have much rebound at all, despite a big-name cast.

Greg Maki
Star-Democrat (Easton, MD)

Owen Wilson, Charlie Sheen and newcomer Sara Foster are all wrong for Elmore Leonard characters.

...Nothing matters much in this Elmore Leonard adaptation as the sight of budding starlet Sara Foster in various states of undress.

Entertainment Today

Comfortable and familiar, like a good friend telling a joke you've heard before. Weightless, diverting fun for those who simply must catch at least one movie a week.

Best approached as a Come to Hawaii advertisement with a wisecracking Wilson as your happy tour guide.

Michael Dequina
TheMovieReport.com

Couldn't be any less like its title, as the mix of quirks, crime and comedy... comes off as labored and largely unfunny.
