Review & Comments
Leave your thoughts about Mad Dogs.
Seattle Post-Intelligencer - 8/10 by William ArnoldA bit smarter than it seems at first glance, and ends up being a rather colorful and fascinating -- and often imaginatively Capraesque.
Entertainment Weekly - 8/10 by Lisa SchwarzbaumWhen Rock finds his authentic swing as an actor as well as a comedian, he'll be, like, a movie god.
Philadelphia Inquirer - 8/10 by Carrie RickeyNot only is there no magnetism between Fiennes and Lopez, he's a lead balloon and she's helium-filled. Happily, their odd chemistry doesn't sink this fairy tale.
Chicago Sun-Times - 8/10 by Roger EbertThere won't be a person in the audience who can't guess exactly how it will turn out. Yet it goes through its paces with such skill and charm that, yes, I enjoyed it.
Boston Globe - 8/10 by Ty BurrIt's Lopez who's the proper focus of this dream. So intent has she been on becoming a superstar in the past few years that many people have forgotten that, given decent material, she can act.
Chicago Reader - 7/10 by Jonathan RosenbaumDespite a continuity problem or two, this is one of those rare contemporary romantic comedies that actually work.
Seattle Post-Intelligencer - 7/10 by William ArnoldRock, who seems to have studied every nuance of Beatty's Oscar-nominated comic performance -- is surprisingly appealing in what is often a straight role.
Washington Post - 7/10 by Stephen HunterRock is such a consistent delight, and so powerfully amused at the profound pleasure of being Chris Rock, that he shares the wealth with all of us.
Chicago Reader - 6/10 by Jonathan RosenbaumIt's slight but likable, and diverting enough as light entertainment.
Village Voice - 6/10 by Caleb CrainThere is a lot of electricity running in these cables, and directors Chris and Paul Weitz, responsible for "American Pie," know how to tap enough of it that almost every minute of Down to Earth is entertaining. But not quite surprising.
Film Threat - 6/10 by Rich ClineThis is by the books in every way, funny and undemanding ... and also rather sweet and heartwarming.
New York Post - 6/10 by Lou LumenickAs an actress, Lopez is a bit stiff, as she has been in all of her movies save "Out of Sight." It really doesn't matter much here, given the sparks between her and Fiennes and the fact that the role is pretty much form-fitted to her public persona.
