July 18, 2003
The jokes are as lame as they are tame.
July 18, 2003
Though the storytelling is a bit lopsided, the slapdash quality is charming overall, and the movie benefits from colorful characters and a couple of hilarious scenes.
July 18, 2003
Fast, funny and extremely light.
July 18, 2003
It's a handsome film, and made with verve, but too often the tone wobbles and far, far too many of its jokes hit with a splat.
July 18, 2003
The characters are often sketchy at best.
July 18, 2003
Amiable but oddly amateurish.
July 18, 2003
Fun in a guilty pleasure sort of way, but ultimately easily forgotten.
July 18, 2003
An unwieldy mix.
July 18, 2003
How did it all go so horribly wrong for Alex Proyas in his latest movie, Garage Days?
July 18, 2003
The whole thing seems to fall victim to the failed sitcom syndrome.
July 18, 2003
While Garage Days tries a bit too hard to be cool and slips into a darker place than you might expect, you can tell that everyone here is having a good time.
July 18, 2003
Director Alex Proyas tries to serve up a good-spirited romp, but by the time this one arrives at its welcome conclusion, you may well have had enough 'lively, eye-popping' filmmaking to last the rest of the year.
July 18, 2003
The movie has a lot of affection for these scruffy wannabes, and I liked the fact that they were not arrogant, aggressive types, but sort of average, with reasonable values and ambitions.
July 18, 2003
A cheery, cheeky, youthful lark that it trips over its Doc Martens in the first few scenes and never gets up.
July 18, 2003
Absolutely the wussiest rock 'n' roll movie since Rick Springfield's Hard to Hold (1984).
July 18, 2003
[A] sweet, delectable rock 'n' roll comedy.
July 18, 2003
A small-scale Australian musical with an appealing no-name cast whose charms are obscured by directorial self-indulgence.
July 18, 2003
A mainstream endeavor tricked out as an indie, Garage Days gives us plenty to look at but no reason to care.
July 17, 2003
Alex Proyas directs with high energy and brash innocence and has a grand time putting his technology and technique to work in such a lark.
July 17, 2003
Strip away the music video-style imagery and eighties-flavored rock soundtrack from Garage Days and you're left with a forced, self-consciously 'wacky' comedy that's more frantic than genuinely funny.
