...a breezy, nasty little film that delivers more than it promises.

No matter how bad a movie with A-list actors involved is, it will still be released - somewhere, sometime, to someone.

[Tyler] seems like she would be more at home playing a tomboy.

Once the gimmick has worn out its welcome, the movie makes misstep after misstep until a final shootout of baffling stupidity.

An odd fish, this, although there's no denying the conviction the ruby-lipped temptress Liv Tyler brings to washing a car.

If Rashomon were filmed through a shampoo bottle, you'd have some idea what to expect from the surprisingly mean-spirited comedy, One Night at McCool's.

I remember watching the opening scenes with an air of indifference, and I remember watching the climax very nearly in hysterics.

Counting on the star of Brain Smasher: A Love Story for laughs is a sign of true desperation.

"All the sex and violence turns out to be a flimsy, forgettable hit-and-run comedy you'll regret in the morning."
James Kendrick

has energy, but as a farce it falls flat because it has no tone and no center
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

One Night at McCool's is too high-brow to be low-rent and too low-brow to be considered worthy.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5

Much like how Liv Tyler's beauty is softened by the affectless drone of her voice, the film's stylish flash is made less inviting by some dullness in design.

Oblivious to its own towering obsolescence.

Has a leering low-life energy for most of its 93 minutes.
Full Review| Original Score: 3/5

The characters are repellant, and not even in an entertaining or over-the-top way.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Austin Chronicle

Never fully rises to the occasion, maintaining a goofily even keel throughout but rarely tipping over into all-out froth and nuttiness.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

After the first ten minutes McCool's becomes one long night.

The actors make the most of a predictable story line, and almost without exception the jokes are funny.
