The Mod Squad (1999)



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

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.

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.
