Mr. Magoo is transcendently bad. It soars above ordinary badness as the eagle outreaches the fly. There is not a laugh in it. Not one.

Mr. Magoo is not just an insult to the blind and near-blind, it's an insult to every human being who has the misfortune to suffer through this dreadfully unfunny, 90 minute atrocity.

If you really hate your kids, pack them off to this slapdash farce, whose only funny moment is the PC disclaimer at the end about the Disney company's humanist concern for blind people.

If you ever wanted to know how awful a Jackie Chan movie would be without Jackie Chan, this is it.

Hopefully, this picture will force producers to think harder about which subjects have promise and which do not.

Incomplete as a cartoon, indecisive as comedy, halting as adventure, Mr. Magoo turns out to be a shortsighted project.

I grew up with Mr. Magoo. I watched Mr. Magoo. I loved Mr. Magoo. Leslie Nielsen, you're no Mr. Magoo.

When even the outtakes you see over the end titles don't raise a single titter, you know you're in trouble.

It's a mess best left to the nitrate ashes of forgotten film and television history.

Among those who will be insulted by this painfully unfunny comedy are women, the elderly and members of several ethnicities, as well as moviegoers with even the slightest modicum of taste.

Here's where I'm supposed to suggest how the film might be better. But I can't think of anything to say other than to make the film again, with different writers and a new director.
