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.

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.

Hollywood monstrosities all, and boy are they scary!

After enduring only a few minutes of this shrill debacle, you'll feel more trapped in the theater than Jimmy is by his bubble.
August 27, 2001
Seems calculated to deliberately offend not only every character onscreen but everyone in the audience as well.

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

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.
August 25, 2001
bright, frantic, innocent, occasionally gross, wickedly observant and just plain nuts
August 24, 2001
Rarely funny, mildly entertaining in a morbid sort of way, and almost always terrible.
August 24, 2001
It doesn't make you laugh and it doesn't make you cry. It just makes you feel icky.

If you're looking for Schindler's List here, please stay home.

Try to imagine something Peter and Bobby Farrelly might make if they had no talent whatsoever, and you'll have some idea what to expect.
August 24, 2001
Certainly the meanest-spirited film ever associated with the Disney hallmark.
August 24, 2001
Has a goofy and over-the-top way of making its point, but as long as you're not stuck on it fitting a particular mould, it's a fun - and meaningful - ride.
August 24, 2001
It offends so many people on so many levels that Disney executives may soon wish they could take refuge in a plastic bubble of their own.
