Too often, things are simply too painfully accurate to be particularly funny. Still, it's hard to fault Brooks' resolutely adult intelligence, and Lost in America - almost in spite of itself, really - is easily his most consistently amusing work to date.
August 11, 2017
Packed to the gills with Albert Brooks' signature dialog, and played to the hilt by both leads, Lost in America has a long set-up. But it's a testament to Brook's clever characterization.

Brooks explodes the Kerouac fantasy by depicting two of the most uptight, urban people in the world trying to live it out.
August 5, 2017
It's an endlessly funny and often uncomfortable piece of work, featuring some of the sharpest, deftest writing Brooks and frequent collaborator Monica Johnson ever crafted.

Lost in America is one of the funniest films from one of our greatest cinematic comedians.

Amusing satire on yuppies having a mid-life crisis.

It is, I think, Brooks' masterpiece -- nothing inessential, one great scene after another, just flat-out perfect. Stanley Kubrick was an Albert Brooks fan for a reason.

This sharply observed satire about disillusioned yuppies is Brooks' chef d'oeuvre and first commercial success, a film with an hero that's less obnoxious than the usual and a wonderful partner too, played by Julie Hagerty

Depends on your Albert Brooks' tolerance. Mine is low.

September 27, 2002
A movie whose parts are greater than its whole. There are some great moments in this film, but the overall structure is jarring, especially the way it just suddenly ends.
| Original Score: 3/5

There is no santy claus

April 11, 2001
In this well-realized and very relevant movie, Brooks manages to make us ponder the quiet desperation of our working lives and the sharp edges of our fantasies.
January 1, 2000
So good throughout that the film easily had the potential to be great.
