Review & Comments
Leave your thoughts about Mad Dogs.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 - 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.
USA Today - 6/10 by Mike ClarkWere the material not so thin, it would be even more fun than it is seeing Fiennes get to be loose on screen for once. He's pleasant, but we never feel this guy could get elected. Whenever he smiles, Fiennes brings to mind the title of Disney's deluxe new DVD: "The Complete Goofy."
Salon.com - 6/10 by Stephanie ZacharekThe Weitzes haven't come up with a masterpiece in Down to Earth, but they have put their stamp on a perfectly pleasant 90-minute diversion
Boston Globe - 6/10 by Jay CarrA little too shipshape, too eager to please, not quite as anarchic as the best comedies.
Chicago Reader - 6/10 by Jonathan RosenbaumIt's slight but likable, and diverting enough as light entertainment.
