Critic Reviews for A Bad Idea Gone Wrong

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (8) | Rotten (2)

  • "A Bad Idea Gone Wrong" is like a decent late-night supper thrown together with random items from the back of the fridge and a cupboard or two. It can be a nice surprise, but show up too hungry and you might be left wanting.

    November 30, 2017 | Full Review…
  • First-time filmmaker Jason Headley, directing from his own screenplay, keeps his concoction moving briskly and humorously, with a light sprinkling of acceptably sweet sentimentality here and there.

  • The screenplay consistently produces moments that induce chuckles, if not belly laughs. There's also just enough well-earned sentiment thrown in to provide a nice counterpoint to the farcical humor.

    March 22, 2017 | Full Review…
  • A slightly entertaining, yet ultimately forgettable, affair.

    December 26, 2018 | Rating: 4.5/10 | Full Review…
  • Unfortunately, the film's situation and dialogue fail to push A Bad Idea Gone Wrong successfully across the finish line. It's situation just doesn't feel dangerous enough.

    February 26, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • This little would-be heist comedy proves an engaging trifle-nothing more than an extended sitcom, but a pretty good one.
