Among the squandered supporting cast are Dennis Farina, Chris Penn, Megan Mullally, and Seymour Cassel.

Weird, then, how the cast play as if holding their breath for the pay cheque.

Nothing can survive the toxic unfunniness of Green.
March 4, 2003
It's no-win stuff. It's not offensive enough to appeal to Green's (ever-decreasing) fan-base, nor witty enough to convince anyone else.

There's a funny movie trapped somewhere inside Stealing Harvard, but the finished product offers only fleeting glimpses of it.

Whenever Green shows up to do his semi-improvised, non-acting shtick ... this otherwise sprightly and intermittently amusing movie suddenly feels like a ship dragging its anchor.
September 19, 2002
The timing in nearly every scene seems a half beat off.
September 17, 2002
Depressingly thin and exhaustingly contrived. Only masochistic moviegoers need apply.
September 16, 2002
It's bland and that's the worst thing a comedy can be.
September 14, 2002
A shambling, incoherent story ... manages to abuse both Mr. Lee's good nature and his comic gift.
September 13, 2002
Chronicles lame crimes poorly imagined, unplanned, wretchedly executed, with little wit or surprise.
September 13, 2002
Tom Green and an Ivy League college should never appear together on a marquee, especially when the payoff is an unschooled comedy like Stealing Harvard, which fails to keep 80 minutes from seeming like 800.
September 13, 2002
Director Bruce McCulloch packs every scene with visual gags and his Kids in the Hall satiric touch is all over this movie.
September 13, 2002
Stealing Harvard doesn't care about cleverness, wit or any other kind of intelligent humor.
September 13, 2002
It's not enough to say that Green isn't funny in Stealing Harvard -- that might leave the impression that Green simply isn't funny in comparison to other comedians. No, it's bigger than that.
September 13, 2002
Put Tom Green in enough movies, and eventually something funny will happen. Stealing Harvard offers more evidence that this hasn't happened yet.
September 13, 2002
The script is stale, but the gags are downright rancid.
September 13, 2002
The film glorifies incompetence, in part by terrorizing you with it.
September 13, 2002
Stealing Harvard aspires to comedic grand larceny but stands convicted of nothing more than petty theft of your time.
