Critic Reviews for Lookin' to Get Out

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (4)

The picture is a sloppy mess that stumbles toward oblivion like a drunk on a losing streak.

October 31, 2007 | Full Review…

An ill- conceived vehicle for actor (and co-writer) Jon Voight to showcase his character comedy talents in a loose, semi-improvised environment.

October 31, 2007 | Full Review…

About the only thing to be said on the film's behalf is that it does have the courage of its own mistakes. Lookin' to Get Out stays on the same wrong track from beginning to end.

August 30, 2004 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…

Ashby's instincts are so off throughout Lookin' To Get Out that he only accentuates his major weaknesses as a filmmaker - plot twists, slapstick, chase sequences and lots of screaming that eschews any character development or scenes of insight.

June 13, 2012 | Full Review…

Moronic comedy that's pleasant enough until it runs out of steam in the third act.

September 12, 2011 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

While I understand and somewhat respect the apparent improv style for this movie, it did tend to lend itself to redundant and useless dialogue.
