Washington Post - Desson Thomson
Subtly riotous.
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
A genuine surprise: A movie as funny as the "SNL" stuff, and yet with convincing characters, a compelling story and a sunny, sweet sincerity shining down on the humor.
Chicago Reader - Jonathan Rosenbaum
Even if you find Franken hard to bear, as I do, the movie's take on how he functions in the world is both authoritative and compelling, and the movie steadily grows in stature.
The New York Times - Janet Maslin
Little more than a set of intermittently funny skits strung together by a sketchy nonplot about Stuart's relatives. As directed by Harold Ramis, it's seldom better than just amiable.
TV Guide Magazine - Unnamed
Often funny, darker than you'd expect, and firmly grounded in Franken's extensive experience of the 12-Step worldview.
