perhaps a creative film distributor could employ a brain surgeon who can perform temporary lobotomies in order to endure films like this

...an ideal example of how to do a summer movie right...

Uneven, unfocused with some inspired silliness.

Part of the problem with Evolution -- aside from the fact that it isn't really very funny -- is that it's mostly jaded; there's very little gee-whiz, almost no awe.

Paying homage to his previous and better work, Reitman's new comedy is marked by one-idea story, sporadic humor that lacks wit, and cheesy special effects.

EVOLUTION is like a chemistry set experiment that could have gone horribly awry, but turns out just right . . . Duchovny and Jones have great buddy movie chemistry

Funny, but predictable and dumb.

It's like Ghostbusters -- but with aliens! And guns! And no script!

Duchovny and Jones play off each other with excellent comic timing.

While "Evolution" is generally fun to watch -- it would be a perfect choice for a Saturday afternoon when you feel like shifting your brain into low gear -- it's not nearly the joyride the filmmakers obviously wanted so badly for it to be.

A comedy that can't walk erect. Please, Reitman, evolve already.

La carrera de Reitman ha entrado en un estado de involución del que no se ve una pronta recuperación.

Once again, the overblown and ultimately uninvolving special effects overshadow some actors working pretty damn hard.

It is deeply boring, blindly paced, and humiliating for me, who had nothing to do with it.

Two decades ago, this would have been a great movie. Now, it's just another round of leftovers.

It won't make as much money as the Will Smith blockbuster, but it's a much better movie: less arrogant, less enamored with its special effects, and infinitely more clever.
