Critic Reviews for Abbott and Costello Meet Captain Kidd

All Critics (4) | Fresh (2) | Rotten (2)

  • Since everything about the film is substandard, Charles Laughton also seems to be taking a vacation from his usual, more esteemed works, despite reprising his role from 1945.

  • plays more like a long television show than a feature film, which gives it a level of energy and fun

    October 14, 2013 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Overall, the big production seems to keep the comedy team on their toes, and, while this never reaches the highs of their best films, it also feels a lot less lazy than their worst efforts.

    April 21, 2011 | Full Review…
  • The only genuine point of interest is seeing Charles Laughton get his wish to play the buffoon.
