Bad trip. Bites. Whack. Whatever your era and whatever your slang, this new movie version of TV's The Mod Squad stinks.
March 21, 2017
There are only two possible reactions to the film version of The Mod Squad: Either you hate it or you really hate it.
March 21, 2017
Fans of the TV show say it was cool. The movie is kind of cool, too, but it tastes like cold leftovers after an hour and a half of stupidity.

[A] woefully uncool, unfunny, unnecessary recycling of the old TV show.
March 21, 2017
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.

Everyone works hard, but the results are sadly short of style and personality or irony and intelligence.

It's a terrible movie, really, but I'm not hard-hearted enough to condemn it, because it brings back some of the scrappy feel of '70s TV action series.
March 21, 2017
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.
March 21, 2017
Nothing really fits together and just to make it worse, the movie is ugly.
March 21, 2017
The Mod Squad is one of the flimsiest excuses for a movie I've seen in ages.
March 21, 2017
If only the filmmakers had paid as much attention to plot as they did to the soundtrack, The Mod Squad might have had a reason for existence (other than raking in profits from gullible opening-weekend audiences).
March 21, 2017
Maybe someone thought a new Mod Squad would be hip, but it's just a big jive turkey.

[The Mod Squad] presents undercover law enforcement less as a profession than as an accessory, an excuse to pout and glower chicly, to stand around in nightclubs acting like a sullen version of the Last American Rebel.

September 9, 2009
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.
January 5, 2007
No one expects much from movie adaptations of TV shows but complete incoherence and boredom is a bit too much to bear.

An exercise in robotic filmmaking.

Mindless, stylish fun.

Who cares?

October 19, 2004
Otherwise dependable young actors like Danes, Ribisi and Epps seem lost in one-dimensional and unconvincing characters.

May 20, 2003
This is a pristine example of incoherent storyline mixed with poor editing and limp writing.
