WHAT ARE CRITICS SAYING?

80

Village Voice by

A British variation on Hollywood nonsense, and as such it's a little gloomier, a little coarser, and a lot more cerebral--oh, and funnier than all the "Reno 911!" boxed sets combined.
80

Variety by Derek Elley

A sustained genre parody that's equally funny but (maybe in deference to the genre) much more pumped up.
75

ReelViews by James Berardinelli

A little too long and suffers from a sagging midsection when the level of exposition becomes laborious, but the spectacularly entertaining final 30 minutes compensates for a lot of flaws.
90

L.A. Weekly by Scott Foundas

For most of its running time, it's an enjoyably unpretentious celebration of the guilty pleasure we can take from a stupid-as-all-get-out car chase or from watching things blow up real good. Then, in its final half hour, Wright and Pegg ratchet up the absurdity tenfold and enter the realm of the sublime.
