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

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

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

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

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