Disappointing, too violent, and not very funny.
| Original Score: 2/5
...a breezy, nasty little film that delivers more than it promises.
| Original Score: B
No matter how bad a movie with A-list actors involved is, it will still be released - somewhere, sometime, to someone.
| Original Score: 1/5
[Tyler] seems like she would be more at home playing a tomboy.
| Original Score: 1/4
Messy but periodically funny.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
Once the gimmick has worn out its welcome, the movie makes misstep after misstep until a final shootout of baffling stupidity.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
An odd fish, this, although there's no denying the conviction the ruby-lipped temptress Liv Tyler brings to washing a car.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
If Rashomon were filmed through a shampoo bottle, you'd have some idea what to expect from the surprisingly mean-spirited comedy, One Night at McCool's.
| Original Score: C
I remember watching the opening scenes with an air of indifference, and I remember watching the climax very nearly in hysterics.
| Original Score: A-
Counting on the star of Brain Smasher: A Love Story for laughs is a sign of true desperation.
"All the sex and violence turns out to be a flimsy, forgettable hit-and-run comedy you'll regret in the morning."
has energy, but as a farce it falls flat because it has no tone and no center
One Night at McCool's is too high-brow to be low-rent and too low-brow to be considered worthy.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
Much like how Liv Tyler's beauty is softened by the affectless drone of her voice, the film's stylish flash is made less inviting by some dullness in design.
Oblivious to its own towering obsolescence.
Has a leering low-life energy for most of its 93 minutes.
| Original Score: 3/5
The characters are repellant, and not even in an entertaining or over-the-top way.
Never fully rises to the occasion, maintaining a goofily even keel throughout but rarely tipping over into all-out froth and nuttiness.
After the first ten minutes McCool's becomes one long night.
The actors make the most of a predictable story line, and almost without exception the jokes are funny.
