Watch the opening for Bruce Campbell's death scene, and then run far away.

You'd be hard-pressed to come up with a movie that ticks more of the boxes for a perfect storm of So Bad It's Perfect.

As you stand there with your $7, ask yourself, 'Do I really want to see a rubber gorilla smoke a cigar?' If necessary, ask yourself twice.

If you have a highly developed sense of the absurd and an appreciation for movie clichés, then you'll find Congo a hoot.

An anachronistic mess made of cliched characters and situations...

Feels as if the picture were edited to leave the action sequences in while removing any connecting material that might have helped them make sense.

A completely unintentional laugh riot and, in that sense, top-drawer Crichton.

Not funny bad, just bad bad. The worst adaptation of a Michael Crichton book so far.

Not the worst adventure flick that I've ever seen, but far from a great one either.

A movie that appears to have been designed first as a future theme park, and then as a major motion-picture.
