Variety - Derek Elley
A superbly written loony-tunes satire, played by a tony cast at the top of its game.
Empire - Damon Wise
George Clooney dazzles and Jeff Bridges shines in a scattershot but often hilarious military farce.
Premiere - Unnamed
An often highly amusing comedy in the vein of "Catch 22" and "Dr Strangelove," this lively satire looks destined for future cult status. Great soundtrack, too.
ReelViews - James Berardinelli
The film is more than a little odd but it has fun with its offbeat premise and moves along breezily until it gets bogged down in the third act.
St. Louis Post-Dispatch - Joe Williams
This jam-packed picture is too zippily scripted and edited to get stuck in message mode, yet the stellar cast achieves a rare harmonic convergence.
