All Critics (21) | Top Critics (10) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (17)

  • It's far from being a professional job, but Rude Awakening probably wouldn't be as much fun if it were.

  • The movie is very uneven, but it does manage to do a couple of crucial things that those tributes haven't. It shows us the zany heart of '60s counterculture, and it reminds us that the zaniness was a form of political expression.

    July 11, 2014 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • With ideals higher than it's leading men, this film can only fall short, failing to back up its flimsy philosophising.

    July 11, 2014 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • It's hard to be against a movie that's against war. Which is the most enthusiastic thing you can say about Rude Awakening, a witty concept that never quite materializes into a movie.

    July 11, 2014 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Rude Awakening is utterly without merit, and its "give-peace-a-chance" message during the final credits is lame to the point of being offensive.

    July 11, 2014 | Rating: 0.5/4 | Full Review…
  • A sincere, somewhat nuanced, relatively uncliched, and actually judicious look at both the 60s and 80s and what they mean in relation to each other.

    I liked the idea and the film started of really good, but then it just became slow and boring towards the end.
