Preminger seems unable to invest his film with any lightness or spontaneity.

A stodgy old example of the establishment desperate attempt to cash in on an increasingly powerful youth counterculture movement.

Skidoo patronises young and old alike, which is pretty much like cutting off both legs before a track meet.

... Keystone Mobsters, with career criminals and fun-loving hippies colliding in a comedy of flower power, slapstick and psychedelia...

The movie, which has the form of comedy, is 98 minutes of disconnected story-conference ideas.

One of those movies that defies labels like "good" or "bad" or "insane" or "genius," Skidoo conveys the generation gap of the late 1960s in a singularly bizarre way.

Preminger's acid trip, and a hilarious piece of vintage hipsterism.
