[It] feels scattered and less than the sum of Mr. Miller's many parts. But it has its heart in the right movie-mad place.
Miller can't from out-of-nowhere save a picture that's only about Miller from out-of-nowhere saving pictures.
At 90-odd minutes, it's more exhausting than illuminating -- there's not much time for anything resembling proper analysis.
Drenner makes a persuasive argument that Miller is a far better actor than he's ever been given credit for.
Miller is such a character that Drenner takes the advice offered him by many of the filmmakers he interviews: He just turns on the camera and lets Miller work his magic.
While the end result feels a tad overstuffed at 92 minutes, it's entirely understandable if, after more than half a century of being identified as "that guy," Miller's in no hurry to relinquish the spotlight.
That Guy Dick Miller is a great look at a man to whom any child of the '50s, '60s, '70s, or '80s owes more memories than we can probably count.
That Guy is just a ton of fun. The clips alone deliver a wildly eccentric nostalgia trip. Plus, there is something rather inspiring about Miller's resiliency.
It does ultimately identify the pleasure audiences get from Miller's performances. In that microcosmic way, it pays big-picture homage not just to this one great character actor, but to all great character actors.
While That Guy Dick Miller plays a lot like an extended (and overlong) DVD extra, the subject is so likable that the movie as a whole is fairly pleasant.
It's clear that That Guy Dick Miller needs more Dick, but fans of the man will find enough here to justify the time investment.
This is an unabashed celebration of Dick Miller, the veteran character actor whose filmography reads like the history of American genre cinema.
