Rudolph exagera ao transformar o filme em um delírio (in)digno de Terry Gilliams, mas o roteiro, sua mensagem e as atuações acabam equilibrando a balança.
| Original Score: 3/5

Adaptating a Vonnegut book isn't easy. This movie pulls it off (for the most part).

What could be funnier than Nick Nolte in a dress?

With so many satirical targets and such a mad, busy stage, getting through this shrill, tiresome film is another story altogether.

Boring cinema.

Breakfast of Champions is so chaotic that after twenty minutes you can easily lose patience for its scattershot arrangement and redundant reproaches.

A ghastly misfire that brings out the self-indulgent worst in everyone involved.

Rudolph's use of grotesque close-ups, boisterous parodies of inane TV fare and manic handling of his actors do nothing to enrich the message.
| Original Score: 5/10

Where the book succeeded with its slippery narrative, the film, without one coherent scene or line of dialogue to its credit, falls apart on arrival.

Breakfast of Champions is a spectacular failure.

The plot's not as confusing as it sounds, but the film's frenetic pace, kooky visual effects, choppy tone and overblown acting make it all a bit more disorienting than necessary.

Breakfast of Champions -- the movie -- isn't the book, but it's probably the best screen adaptation Alan Rudolph or any other director could hope to get out of the source material.
| Original Score: 3/4

If you can stand the tumult, you may find yourself feeling giddy as you watch old pros like Nolte, Willis, Hershey and, especially, Finney play at such a high pitch.

The movie looks and feels like a frantic, live-action psychedelic cartoon.
