Nowhere near as bad as most recent comedies; it has real laughs, but it misses real opportunities.

Leaves the audience wondering if Hollywood has already been taken over by aliens who are trying to numb our minds with mediocre films like this one.

Neither the sci-fi nor the comedy are strong enough to sustain the movie.

As far as rip-offs go, "Evolution" is a pretty good one.

Evolution becomes the kind of film that Dad might laugh at more than his 16-year-old son. Chalk it up to residual Ghostbusters goodwill memories.

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

Evolution seems designed to kill screen time rather than tell a story.

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

Saddled with a listless, haphazard script ... that's little more than a concept and doesn't bother to hang together.

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.

Has more rear-end gags than a toga party at a proctology convention.

Reitman made this movie in 1984. It was called Ghostbusters.

All the trappings of a major laugh fest -- but the one thing [Reitman] forgot was the major laughs.

A sorry retread of Ghostbusters, a bad remake of Men in Black, and nowhere near as clever as it thinks it is.

"Evolution" bottom feeds with his (Reitman's) "Legal Eagles," "Twins" and "Junior" oeuvre.

...a big-budget bomb...that failed to evolve.

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