All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

An embarrassingly unfunny attempt at screwball comedy, marking a career nadir for producer-director Peter Bogdanovich and his miscast star Rob Lowe.

The film isn't funny, but it's hard to figure out why.

...none of this is even remotely funny.

Reel Film Reviews

[Bogdanovich] tries to emphasize the laughs rather than concentrating on characterization.

One of the most excruciatingly awful comedies ever made, with Lowe and Bogdonavich utterly disgracing themselves.

Audience Reviews for Illegally Yours

A funny romance comedy with the handsome Rob Lowe, and a good supporting cast. I enjoyed this movie, it's not great, but it's funny and I liked it.

Honestly if it weren't for the wit in the commentary by the narrator in this one it would have been so boring. But the conspiracy in it is so out there that it's actually pretty funny. It is kinda stupid but what would you expect form a movie from 1988, it's stereotypical of the time and it was at least a little bit of fun.
