You know there's something wrong with a comedy when you'd rather see the main characters killed off than live happily ever after.

August 16, 2011
The ensemble's amped-up histrionics rub against each other without ever catching fire.
January 30, 2011
Just not a very strong take on the bank-robbing comedy we've seen so many times before.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10

Minkoff doesn't bring a whole lot of originality to the picture, which could use a shot of surprise considering the snoozy bank heist conventions it employs. Still, what he lacks in freshness he makes up for in velocity.

In the end, there's just a roomful of decent character actors in search of a point. For them, the titular "Flypaper" may have simply been a paycheck.

Although tempting enough to initially attract audiences, this caper comedy may have trouble getting them to stick around, despite a starry cast.

There reaches a point, however, at which the rather limited nature of the movie's premise starts to become a problem...

August 19, 2011
A mighty thin and derivative slice of moviemaking.
January 30, 2011
Slick but instantly forgettable.
February 4, 2011
It's painfully unfunny, and the type of immediately disposable junk one wouldn't expect to see on cable, much less the Sundance Film Festival.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/10

You'll be the one who ends up feeling ripped off.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
August 18, 2011
The sprawling ensemble yields to a story that's so heavily worked-over, it doesn't get much of a chance to breathe.

It's a mess from start to finish, but there's still fun to be had in Rob Minkoff's caper comedy.

The real question is: How does a movie as weak as this get made? Who read this script and said, "I have to make this movie"?..It's not funny - and that's the real crime.

One thought that occurred to me while pacing myself through Flypaper: With the economy being what it is, will there be a rash of bank robbery movies?

February 3, 2011
May not be well executed, too broad for a script that obviously wants to be a very profane and twisted black comedy, but it's not without a silly charm.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
February 10, 2011
The film is a heist-and-hostage comedy that reminds you that criminals, under pressure, are as neurotic as anyone else.
August 18, 2011
"Flypaper" has enough twists and surprises to remain interesting in a closed-room, Agatha Christie kind of way. But it's never quite as clever or as hip as it thinks it is.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
