With only an occasional laugh here and there, this is just another of the many stinky comedies to come around in years.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
Director Bruce McCulloch tries to minimize the damage Green does, but even one frame of him would be too much.
| Original Score: 2/5
Among the squandered supporting cast are Dennis Farina, Chris Penn, Megan Mullally, and Seymour Cassel.
Weird, then, how the cast play as if holding their breath for the pay cheque.
McCulloch stages his action as if he were still working on the two-walled sets he knew from Canadian television.
There is no real reason to see this unless you are related to someone involved in the project, and even then you might think pretty hard before you spend $9 and 90 minutes here.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
Stealing Harvard is a limp and lazy affair, and a flick that positively reeks of contractual obligation.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
This is just lazy.
| Original Score: 1/5
Nothing can survive the toxic unfunniness of Green.
You'll just have your head in your hands wondering why Lee's character didn't just go to a bank manager and save everyone the misery.
The result is a corps of good actors stuck with feeble, unfunny material that could easily pass as a crime against the moviegoing public.
| Original Score: 0/5
It's no-win stuff. It's not offensive enough to appeal to Green's (ever-decreasing) fan-base, nor witty enough to convince anyone else.
This film tries so hard to be both charming and disgusting that it's almost painful to watch.
I suppose as long as there are teenage boys to shell out money for movie tickets, there will be movies like this to suck it up.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
There's a funny movie trapped somewhere inside Stealing Harvard, but the finished product offers only fleeting glimpses of it.
The film is like a series of beginnings and middles that never take off.
There's just enough to Stealing Harvard to prevent it from being the worst movie of the year. But the few things that this movie has going for it have nothing to do with Tom Green.
Harvard and neices have nothing to do with this movie, it's just an excuse for 90 minutes of jokes
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Seemingly a vehicle to showcase the Canadian's inane ramblings, Stealing Harvard is a smorgasbord of soliloquies about nothing delivered by the former Mr. Drew Barrymore.
"Stealing Harvard," from a one-joke premise by Peter Tolan, is about as fun as the current working climate at Tyco.
