Structurally, the film is a mess: on screen, the novel's digressive, anecdotal narrative seems directionless and muddled.

Rudolph exagera ao transformar o filme em um delírio (in)digno de Terry Gilliams, mas o roteiro, sua mensagem e as atuações acabam equilibrando a balança.
| Original Score: 3/5

Adaptating a Vonnegut book isn't easy. This movie pulls it off (for the most part).

The movie looks and feels like a frantic, live-action psychedelic cartoon.

Rudolph's film, like most of his others, just isn't funny enough to sustain the lunacy.

Breakfast of Champions is a weirdly stillborn experience.

This mélange of bizarre images and disjointed special effects will leave you feeling more dizzy than enlightened.

Rudolph's adaptation captures the spirit and chaos of his source material, and he does it with style and passion.

Another middle-aged male-crisis opus, it begins on a note of total migraine-inducing hysteria, which continues unabated throughout.

Breakfast of Champions -- the movie -- isn't the book, but it's probably the best screen adaptation Alan Rudolph or any other director could hope to get out of the source material.
| Original Score: 3/4

Annoying and is barely entertaining for even a minute.

With so many satirical targets and such a mad, busy stage, getting through this shrill, tiresome film is another story altogether.

Boring cinema.

Breakfast of Champions is so chaotic that after twenty minutes you can easily lose patience for its scattershot arrangement and redundant reproaches.
