What to know

critics consensus

A tasteless unintentional parody of the life it attempts to dramatize, Wired butchers John Belushi's memory with a misguided screenplay and unnecessary recreations of classic performances. Read critic reviews

  • Given the impossibility of his assignment, Michael Chiklis doesn't do half badly as Belushi -- he`s clearly a better actor, though not necessarily a better comic, than the original -- but otherwise Wired can claim only camp value.

    May 4, 2014 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • The result is a film that hedges its bets but still manages to portray the destructive power of drugs.

    May 4, 2014 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • What you're left with is a vague portrait of the artist as the victim of too much, too soon.

    May 4, 2014 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • You leave this movie unenlightened about who John Belushi really was, or why he abused himself so badly.

    May 4, 2014 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • The crippling flaw in the film lies in its mix of surface daring and inner funk. Inside, it keeps flinching.

    May 4, 2014 | Full Review…
  • Although newcomer Michael Chiklis turns in a sterling performance, Wired never allows him to explain why Belushi was such an infuriatingly drug-sodden slob, and sadly for a movie about a funny man its woefully short on humour.

    Dumb and strange biopic of comedian and drug addict John Belushi.
