    The film is reduced to a series of unfunny mockery laid out so Garlin can display his trademark deadpan reaction.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 38 Nick McCarthy
    It functions under the delusion that subtext will magically appear if you linger on a character long enough, and the significance of most of its scenes is nothing if not inscrutable.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 38 Nick McCarthy
    An egregious entry into the pantheon of films about white Americans traveling to exotic lands in search of identity and soul-searching adventure.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 38 Nick McCarthy
    Nothing more than an absurdist soap-opera bauble.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 38 Nick McCarthy
    A tale of memory and redemption that does little to linger in the mind and even less to decry P.L. Travers's claim that Disney turns everything it touches into schmaltz.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 38 Nick McCarthy
    Right up to its simplistic ending, the film is pleased to regurgitate the contrived tropes of the genre without ever honestly addressing the ethics of romantic boundaries.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 38 Nick McCarthy
    The film, with its dark-blue-hued cinematography and murky music, is all foreboding atmosphere.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 25 Nick McCarthy
    It ascribes to the falsehood that a rarefied milieu inherently infuses a film with intelligence, as if inept execution can be covered up by pretty lensing.
    • 19 Metascore
    • 25 Nick McCarthy
    Cavemen is an apt title considering how the sensibility and maturity of the film's characters don't seem to have developed beyond primal, alpha-man impulses.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 25 Nick McCarthy
    It's attempt at conveying a candid portrait of contemporary hookup culture and the dishonesty of online dating profiles, but the film's sentiments are all past their expiration date.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 25 Nick McCarthy
    Rather than commit to exploring Jessabelle's existential crisis, the filmmakers opt to pile on the clich├ęs straight until the rotten denouement.
