Critic Reviews for Doctor Detroit

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

I'll be honest: it plays a lot better when you're twelve.

May 14, 2013 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

There's no sense of momentum, structure, or escalating comedic craziness; it's is like a feature-length SNL skit, and it's the sort they'd air right before the end credits.

September 24, 2005 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

A sassy comic tale about transformation.

Weird, generally bad but some amusing lines and moments. I see where some of the inspiration for the Dr. Evil franchise came from.
