Critic Reviews for The Man Who Knew Too Little
A one-note mix-up.
...a misguided and terminally unfunny disaster that's rarely as appealing or entertaining as star Bill Murray's typically charismatic performance.
You have to be a Bill Murray fan, or in an especially generous mood, to find The Man Who Knew Too Little more than mildly amusing.
This is the kind of thing Murray and Amiel could do in their sleep. So they do.
After a decade or so of lackluster, what-were-they-thinking? movies, Murray has finally come back to himself
Murray elevates the material in this amusing spy farce.
Audience Reviews for The Man Who Knew Too Little
It's a thin premise: a regular guy gets caught up in international intrigue, the spy game, without being aware of it. And so it becomes a personality vehicle instead. Guess who's personality? It works sometimes, but mostly not.
A one-joke comedy that wants to carry the absurdity of its premise throughout the entire plot. At first it is a funny idea but it wears out faster than expected, with not many smart twists to keep the story fresh, but at least Bill Murray makes it an amusing experience.
