December 21, 2001
A scruffy, amiable misfire of a comedy, full of lame jokes and mixed messages.
December 21, 2001
By the end of Joe Somebody, we are faced with the dismal prospect of being denied a climax, which, if it occurred, would be just as predictable as its substitute.

What's the holiday season without a turkey?

Despite a couple of nice moments between Meg and Joe, and the use of the truly magnificent Eva Cassidy song "Songbird," it is an almost unalloyed disappointment.

Talented actors are wasted on bad script.

If you're sitting through this flick searching for the two or three mild chuckles, you're in for an experience akin to that old "needle in a haystack" scenario.

I'd rather see a whole movie about an aging B-movie actor and forget about all the stuff with Tim Allen.

If you're actually looking for a good movie, look elsewhere.
January 2, 2002
It's three times as long as a TV sitcom, but with just as much depth, a bit more swearing, and probably fewer laughs.

A surprisingly wistful, troubled film. It's not great; it's also not idiotic.

What planet does this movie take place on?

December 26, 2001
The film is too busy concentrating on its various dumb plots and subplots when it should have tossed it all aside and had some fun.
December 18, 2001
How can screenwriter John Scott Shepherd look at himself in the mirror after turning out such uninspired, immature, mechanical, cliche-driven, insultingly predictable drivel?
Full Review | Original Score: 0.5/4
August 17, 2002
...viewed as something like an expanded television sitcom, the film works pretty well, but do you really want to spend any more than thirty minutes time with it?

O arco dramático vivenciado pelo personagem de Tim Allen consegue, por vezes, comover e despertar uma identificação com o espectador. Pena que o filme, em sua insistência em se afirmar como comédia, tente criar piadas tão vazias e mal-sucedidas.

[A] standard-transmission vehicle.

Joe Somebody continually squanders its opportunities for hilarity.

A formula comedy as affable and ineffectual as its hero.
December 21, 2001
Joe Somebody is such a lightweight film it's like watching a smoke ring -- just about the time you start to pay attention, it gets all fuzzy and floats away.
