Critic Reviews for Mindhorn

All Critics (49) | Top Critics (12) | Fresh (45) | Rotten (4)

  • Mindhorn keeps the laughs coming, even while giving the impression of being a 30-minute TV sketch stretched out to a 90-minute feature.

    May 7, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Barratt's delightfulness can't disguise the mediocrity of Mindhorn.

    May 5, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • A delicious central premise and a thoughtfully crafted protagonist are ultimately betrayed in this scattershot comedy from the Mighty Boosh stable that's all promise and dwindling rewards.

    May 5, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Mindhorn is carried off with infectious gusto, and Barratt throws himself into the follies of the lead role with a lack of inhibition that suggests the reverse of the actorly conceit he's portraying.

  • Julian Barratt from The Mighty Boosh is inexhaustibly great...

    May 4, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • The film is faultless and it's a great to see such a brilliantly assembled cast. Comedy is alive and well in the UK.
