Critic Reviews for Wholly Moses!

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (1) | Rotten (6)

  • The movie's not funny on its own, and since movie audiences are scarcely going to be shocked by its mild but relentlessly repetitive irreverence, it all boils down to a very old joke.

    April 30, 2018 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
  • There are a couple of droll sight gags, but nothing can redeem Wholly Moses! from its destiny of eternal mirthlessness.

    April 30, 2018 | Full Review…
  • An opportunistic attempt to cash in on the diminutive Moore's post-10 stardom by shamelessly ripping off the premise of The Life of Brian.

  • Dudley Moore is funny. James Coco, Madeline Kahn and Richard Pryor are funny. Director Gary Weiss showed he was funny with his direction of Saturday Night Live. So, why isn't Wholly Moses funny?

    April 28, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Next to the pointed, funny Life of Brian, this is absolute sacrilege.

    April 30, 2018 | Full Review…
  • The direction by first-time director Gary Weis is flat, and the script by Guy Thomas is uninspired.
