A celebration of risk-taking in the spirit of the heroism of Captain Kirk.
A reference-laden but emotionally thin relationship comedy.
The fun of Free Enterprise, which occasionally runs a bit thin but is mostly sustained by the filmmakers' verve and wit, lies in its many visual and verbal references to popular culture trivia.
When compared to other entries from the recent crop of new filmmakers crafting movies about their lives, Free Enterprise stands out as one of the most entertaining and least pretentious efforts.
William Shatner plays William Shatner as a vulnerable, vainglorious ham, a sad clown who gets along with everybody but strikes out in romance, drinks to excess and spins his fantasy projects with hope against hopelessness...
...uniformly superb performances...
The highly-charged comic engine for the entire vehicle is none other than William Shatner.
The movie is so crammed full of lethally funny science fiction references that even hard-core Trekkers might miss some, and many regular folk will only hear them go whizzing overhead.
This movie hits my demographic so closely that I can hardly review it objectively. If you love action figures and William Shatner, you need to own this film.
This is a good comedy about two fans with a hero and a dream.
A witty comedy that glows with self-deprecating humour.
The in-joke -peppered dialogue is consistently brilliant and the genial Shatner allows himself to be sent up nicely.
This film could have been terribly amusing but it commits the greatest sin - it is terribly boring. Poor William Shatner. I hope he was paid well.
The cut I saw of this movie was a little long and a lot of the scenes could have been shortened or cut out all together. The characters were good and the journey they go on was good to watch. It had a lot of fn stuff in it but people not into the fan stuff should be able to follow the flick.
I'm a little suprised that Shatner was in the flick as he is playing himself and comes off as a little crazy.
I didn't mind the rap at the end either.
A dopey, low-rent Swingers knock-off that opts to dry hump film geek and comic book culture instead of swing dancing and martini culture. The references are great even if the execution was really weak. The scenes with Shatner are worthwhile, but for as much as this movie is right up my alley, it just came off as really contrived and from what I caught (there was a point where my friends and I took what would become a permanent break from it), it never really came together. And when I saw the rest from oddly enough where I left off upon my initial viewing it was even worse. The climactic party with Shatner rapping/delivering a monologue was nothing short of awful.
A little cheap and annoying as the subject matter is such an easy target, but seeing Shatner send himself up makes it worth it. Kevin Smith does this kind of stuff so much better though.
