Critic Reviews for Foolish

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (6)

The miserable production values-the cardboard sets rival a Little Rascals talent show-and P's stone-faced delivery are merely amateurish, but as a vanity project for Griffin, Foolish is downright appalling.

A strange combination of urban melodrama and comedy concert film.

The film loses complete credibility when the audiences at the comedy clubs where Foolish works go wild with delight, way out of proportion to the hilarity of the material. And Foolish is just a little too smug about his artistic integrity.

Audience Reviews for Foolish

Crazy, funny! A little slow in the beginning but the rest of the movie is ok. Not excellent, but funny in the only way that is of Eddie Griffin.
