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

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.

The Mod Squad has an intriguing cast, a director who knows how to use his camera and a lot of sly humor. Shame about the story.

This is the kind of movie that isn't even worth renting when it comes out on video because, with the possible exception of Michael Lerner and Omar Epps dancing to show tunes, you've seen it all before.

Yeah, let's make a movie for the kids ... based on a TV show they've never even heard of.

Add another to the scrap heap of hip '60s and '70s TV shows reduced to cinematic rubble by the inspiration-starved minds in Hollywood.

Add another one to the scrap heap of trendy, nostalgic, 60's and 70's TV shows reduced to cinematic rubble by the inspiration starved minds in Hollywood.

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

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.
October 17, 2002
The first big-screen resurrection aimed squarely at a generation that probably never heard of, much less watched, the original TV show.

Witty and self-aware at times, but the story is lame.

If it looks like a bad '70s cop show, sounds like a bad '70s cop show and has a plot like a bad '70s cop show, what's the point of making a feature film? Just watch a bad '70s cop show, if you can find one.

There is no excuse for a movie being quite this lame and stupid.

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

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

This isn't a horrible film. It's just no good.
October 19, 2004
Otherwise dependable young actors like Danes, Ribisi and Epps seem lost in one-dimensional and unconvincing characters.

Some may call this escapist fare -- I call it escape-as-quickly-as-you-can fare.

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