Joe Somebody Reviews

Page 2 of 5
January 8, 2002
A cloyingly mechanical wannabe comedy in the worm-turns mode.
January 6, 2002
While never truly funny or insightful, the movie works intermittently by digging a little deeper than you might expect.
January 6, 2002
A movie unsure of what it wants to be: a drama about a man wrestling his personal demons or a light-entertainment vehicle for its star, Tim Allen.
January 3, 2002
I'd rather see a whole movie about an aging B-movie actor and forget about all the stuff with Tim Allen.
January 3, 2002
Bland, predictable, unfunny.
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.
December 31, 2001
Stars a badly miscast Tim Allen as Joe Scheffer, a Rocky Balboa of the cubical dwellers. Allen manages to be even worse here than he is in Big Trouble.
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 23, 2001
December 21, 2001
So uninteresting and overflowing with lame jokes that it is sure to bore viewers of every age, shape, and size.
December 21, 2001
Feel-good fluff with a mundane Tim Allen performance and a distinct lack of comedic spark.
December 21, 2001
Save yourself a few dollars. Stay home and watch reruns of Home Improvement.
December 21, 2001
The movie makes smart use of the small-screen big-charm appeal of former Home Improvement star Tim Allen.
December 21, 2001
Aiming to punch holes in some male myths, John Scott Shepherd's script barely makes contact.
December 21, 2001
Wrapped up in Tim Allen's new film, Joe Somebody, is a gem of a message. Unfortunately, the packaging isn't as good as the moral.
December 21, 2001
One of the best family films around.
December 21, 2001
A formula comedy as affable and ineffectual as its hero.
December 21, 2001
Joe Somebody is a family film that goes for the laughs but not at the expense of demonstrating some important life lessons.
December 21, 2001
The movie is a collection of annoying and dead-ended subplots.
December 21, 2001
Joe Somebody gives Allen a piping chance to play it sensitive, sentient and, for all the right reasons, lovable. He takes that chance and does a first-rate job.
