All Critics (63) | Top Critics (19)

There are only two possible reactions to the film version of The Mod Squad: Either you hate it or you really hate it.

Whatever countercultural kick the original Mod Squad had going for it, it has long since faded like a favorite pair of blue jeans, the kind you remember fondly but wouldn't dream of wearing again.

Mar 21, 2017 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

The film's resolute failure is clearly a group effort requiring not just an awful script and flat-footed direction, but also terrible acting, an intrusive and derivative score, and a plot that seems to have been lifted from an unproduced Baretta teleplay.

Nothing really fits together and just to make it worse, the movie is ugly.

Mar 21, 2017 | Full Review…

The Mod Squad is one of the flimsiest excuses for a movie I've seen in ages.

Mar 21, 2017 | Full Review…

Maybe someone thought a new Mod Squad would be hip, but it's just a big jive turkey.

[font=Arial][color=darkred]There are some movies out there that you simply can't stop yourself from scratching your head and wondering how it ever got made in the first place. Some movies so horrible that you ponder what any big suited executives were thinking. A movie so bad that you try to cut your own wrist with the armrest beside you somehow. Well folks, 'The Mod Squad' is one of those movies.[/color][/font] [font=Arial][color=darkred]It's the cinematic updating of the Vietnam era show eptimizing the rebellion against authority and supression by the Boomers like only Aaron Spelling can. I'm convinced that if you pay adequate attention to the plot you will actually lower your intelligence, but don't hold me to it. It's only a theory, I still need the tests to come back. This basically is nothing more than a watered down 90-minute jeans ad. "Oooh, look at those jeans Clair Danes shoots up in! I wonder if they have them in a size 30 waist?"[/color][/font] [font=Arial][color=darkred]This is one of those movies I seriously can't find anything remotely good to mention. Though I'm trying to get it all out of my head as quickly as humanly possible. I feel sickened by this poison MGM has thrown out to the masses. I remember the last time Generation X & Y tried looking back nostalgically and enviously on the Boomer's playground. It was called Woodstock '99. Anyone care to remember what happened there?[/color][/font] [font=Arial][color=darkred]Nate's Grade: F [/color][/font]
