The Mod Squad (1999)



Critic Consensus: A sodden, overly stylized mess that's even less compelling than a TV episode.

Critic Reviews for The Mod Squad

All Critics (52) | Top Critics (14)

This latest bigscreen retrofitting of a vintage TV series (1968-73) feels like the most shameless effort yet in the renewed exploitation of the youth market.

An exercise in robotic filmmaking.

Chicago Reader
Top Critic

A flawed fraud, a youth movie so disjointed, witless and condescending that it's painful to watch.

Globe and Mail
Top Critic

Plays like a 90-minute version of the old television show. That's not necessarily bad.

San Francisco Chronicle
Top Critic

A great-looking picture that zips along with grace, light on its feet but possessed of just enough gravity to allow us to take its people rather than its old TV series premise seriously.

Top Critic

If the makers of the new Mod Squad had really studied their source material, they would have noticed how weak it was to begin with, and ended this mess after 60, rather than 94, minutes of pain.
