Perhaps the blandest movie ever, directed so squarely down the middle of the road that helmer Donald Petrie might as well be painting yellow lines.

I can think of so many ways to have fun with a political story such as this. Too bad the makers of "Mooseport" couldn't settle on just one and run with it.

There's not a whole lot to like about Welcome to Mooseport, and, considering how lively real politics can be these days, you're likely to get more entertainment from watching two hours of CSPAN.

Mooseport wears out its welcome fairly quickly.

It seems as long as the presidential primary season.

Gene Hackman and Ray Romano lead "Welcome to Mooseport" right into mediocrity.

"White House meets outhouse" comedy isn't fit to serve, and Marcia Gay Harden and Maura Tierney outshine stars Gene Hackman and Ray Romano.

Welcome to Mooseport has no bite, no edge, and no discernable drive when it comes to making with the yuks.

[Mooseport is] like the pound cake of movies -- nice and safe and sweet, but not really worth recommending.

The movie strives for the cracked, dizzy, New England charm of the old Newhart show ... [b]ut the generic Mooseport has no equivalent, just ye olde tedious jokes.

In a comedy that could just as easily have been titled Grumpy Middle-Aged Men, Ray Romano and Gene Hackman are forced to make do with so-so material.

About as middle of the road as comedies get.

This lackluster production fails to generate much in the way of tension and less in the way of merriment.
