Critic Reviews for Crazy Like a Fox

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (2) | Rotten (9)

  • Writer-director Richard Squires sets us up for a feisty farce with a touch of the florid, with "crazy" Nat and the locals finding clever ways to foil the folks with the bulldozers. But Squires doesn't deliver.

    June 9, 2010 | Rating: 1.5/4
  • What is supposed to be a heartwarming comedy more closely emerges as derivative Capra-corn of the most obvious kind.

    May 18, 2006
  • Roger Rees abandons dignity though not his native English accent to play Nat Banks, the proud but impoverished owner of a decrepit Virginia farm.

    May 8, 2006 | Rating: 2/5
  • Winning performances by Roger Rees and Mary McDonnell, as well as colorful Virginia locations, lift Crazy Like a Fox slightly above the TV-caliber script by its director, regional theater director Richard Squires.

    May 5, 2006 | Rating: 2/4
  • The movie's take on Southern-versus-Northern values could hardly be more stacked or slanted...

  • Crazy Like a Fox is sure-fire stuff, guaranteed to generate good will and do no perceivable harm.

  • It leans toward the obvious whenever it can, but the overall peaceful yearn of the picture is welcoming, along with its superior, expressive thespian efforts.

    June 10, 2010 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
  • The rich characters are more the attraction than the plot. The main character is nor really in the right and that point is more controversial than intended.
