A fun and oddly entertaining twist on the road trip film.
December 11, 2007
The film is only sporadically funny, and it's frequently in poor taste, but it's got energy to spare, and Gyllenhaal's performance gives it a soul.

O personagem-título não é apenas sem graça, mas também chato.

(Bubble Boy) squanders its strongest moments but at least has the courage to attempt strong moments.

January 6, 2002
Hayes shows a deft touch with both cartoony slapstick and character-based comedy and manages to create moments of real poignancy in between.
December 9, 2001
Despite what his mother taught him, despite the evil and injustice he encounters in the world, little Jimmy Livingston is kind and understanding and tolerant of others. That's the moral.
September 29, 2001
Calling the picture an insult to the immune deficiency syndrome is inappropriate; however, calling the movie an act of pure idiocy is bordering generosity.

September 7, 2001
A garish, tawdry film, a mean-spirited trainwreck with virtually no redeeming qualities.

The road trip aspect of Bubble Boy provides fodder for most of the jokes, which are requisitely crude and tactless and only occasionally amusing.
September 2, 2001
The most underrated film of the year. While it's not a great film by any stretch of the imagination, it is a comedy that had me laughing hard and often.

Its satirical jabs at American culture are obvious and juvenile.

Seldom has a more misguided movie escaped from a major studio than Touchstone's Bubble Boy.
August 31, 2001
This amazingly tasteless, gross-out comedy is full of cruel jokes, stupid characters, schmaltzy sentimentality and situations that make no sense.
August 28, 2001
Hollywood monstrosities all, and boy are they scary!
August 27, 2001
Seems calculated to deliberately offend not only every character onscreen but everyone in the audience as well.
August 27, 2001
After enduring only a few minutes of this shrill debacle, you'll feel more trapped in the theater than Jimmy is by his bubble.

Words that come to mind...are politically incorrect, subversive and anarchistic.

August 26, 2001
The ultimate cinematic bafflement, one that will leave the most jaded Hollywood observer with a Freddie Prinze Jr.-like look of bug-eyed, slack-jawed shock.
