Metacritic Score

    The New York Times A.O. Scott

    This may be the greatest picture ever made for 14-year-old boys. Mr. Smith may have hit his target, but he aimed very low.

    Los Angeles Times Kevin Thomas

    There are lots of hilarious, off-the-wall incidents, and the film has a likable freewheeling spirit to go with its knockabout plot. But the film isn't as remotely funny as it means...

    Variety Scott Foundas

    This represents at least as much of an artistic setback for Smith as "Chasing Amy" and "Dogma" were advances.
