Critic Review - Chicago Sun-Times

Caligula is sickening, utterly worthless, shameful trash. If it is not the worst film I have ever seen, that makes it all the more shameful: People with talent allowed themselves to participate in this travesty.

I agree with Ebert, this film is trash. It could've been great, but executive meddling ruined it.

I love how Ebert ends this review.
"This movie," said the lady in front of me at the drinking fountain, "is the worst piece of shit I have ever seen."
