Just from eyeing the Mr. Woodcock movie poster, you could suspect exactly what the movie will be. Just 90 minutes later, your suspicions would be confirmed.

...Scott's character may not be the only one who failed to get beyond eighth grade...

The playful dialog provides the best laughter, while the big set pieces feel strangely muted

The laughs never stop only because they never start. In fact, I can't remember the last time I laughed so little.

A dreary and depressing alleged comedy that takes a talented cast and a promising germ of an idea, and kills it dead.

All Mr. Woodcock gives us is mediocre comedy at its finest.

[Sarandon is] somehow the only star who doesn't end up looking like an overpaid idiot working miles beneath her abilities. And that's a pretty cutting thing to say when you figure in Scott's standard fratboy follies.

Billy Bob Thornton is just as mean as a gym coach as he is as Santa Claus.

Even the lamest comedies out there manage to wring one or two chuckles from yours truly, but this ugly, obnoxious flick couldn't even manage half a smirk.

A comedy with unappealing characters and an ending that just doesn't make any sense given what has preceded it.

Mr. Woodcock is not really a crowd pleaser or some kind of 'dumb as dirt' delight. Instead, it's an apparent attempt to reset the demarcation when determining the lowest common denominator.

Watch out when the best thing to say about a movie is that director Craig Gillespie has staged one of the better 'getting catapulted off of a treadmill' scenes.

Billy Bob Thornton simply couldn't be better as the rude, tyrannical P.E. teacher whose answer to everything is '10 laps.'

Call Mr. Woodcock the latest version of The Billy Bob Thornton Movie.

It's interesting that Thornton should become embraced for playing assertive, caustic types, because in reality he's so little like that.

The only redeeming aspect is that it skewers those sweat-suited sadists we all remember from gym class, but is that satisfaction really worth the price of admission?

Enjoyable enough while it lasts, but also instantly disposable.

I'll give them three big laughs, but those were just flukes.

In the film's attempt to straddle feel-good and feel-bad, ultimately one feels nothing.
