Laughably heavy-handed and violent.

One has the sense that if the level of violence had been ratcheted up a little, Paparazzi might have been more of a guilty pleasure and less of a chore to watch.

Burdened with wooden acting and a laughable, Death Wish-like premise.

Once a promising actor, Tom Sizemore has become a parody of himself of late, showing less subtlety than Gary Oldman on a bad day.

The whole movie is bad -- grandiose, over-the-top and ridiculous -- but it's amusingly bad.

Paparazzi is every bit as brainless as its previews would indicate.

Leave it up to Hollywood to make a film about how hard it is to be rich and famous.

It's not a good sign when a director's primary claim to fame is as Mel Gibson's former hair stylist.

How can anyone with half a brain buy in to this nonsense?

It has its flaws, but Paparazzi is a good guilty pleasure.

A self-conscious, fired-up revenge fantasy that some will find difficult to sit through without offering up the occasional snort and giggle.

Spending more time laughing at it (and more than a few times with it), I managed to get a rather addictively goofy movie that somehow escaped a fate on the USA Network.

A stupid celebrity revenge film that should never have been made.

Scummy sleaze doesn't get more amoral and savage than this petulant, loathsome tale. You can feel the hate.

If the movie weren't done in such deadly earnest, it might have made a great cult-classic, 'so-bad-it's-good' flick, but as it is, it's simply bad.

At least it's hilariously awful.

For anyone who's ever wondered how good it would feel to knock down a photographer with his car and then back over him.

The film is directed by Paul Abascal who exhibits all the subtlety you would expect from a director who got his start as a celebrity hair stylist.
