    The fourth best virtual reality film of 1999. The best is "The Matrix". The second best is "eXistenZ". The third best, well, there's got to be something better than this.

    Oh, boy. This is not unlike watching one of the movies Jerry Lewis made after that concentration camp/clown epic nearly destroyed his career and his mind.

    It's a little frightening to watch Hawn be "bubbly" at her age.

    This movie wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it would be. It's still not that good though.

    Over all, the short stories never gel together or create a unified whole.

    It's charmingly bad and an excellent date film.

    If you love KISS, you'll probably see this movie anyway. If you don't, there's no point.

    I completely dreaded sitting through this movie...Two-hour purgatory.

    Aside from all the known material on public record the filmmakers chose not to use, Howard isn't even capable of believably bringing this off.

    Remember when John Hughes made small, original, oh say, GOOD movies?

    The audience will respond better to ENTERTAINMENT than a club to the head.

    If you've got the opportunity to have someone as talented and game for anything as Swinton, you really owe it to her to give her a real movie to be in.

    In order to spare you the trauma of this cinematrocity, I'll go ahead and tell you how the film turns out. Who killed the General's Daughter? The filmmakers did.

    Not since "Peacemaker" have we witnessed such a battle of wits.

    I'm sure that an interesting film could easily be made about girl surfers, this just ain't it.

    It lacks humor. Unlike "Scream", this film is more of a horror-drama, with everybody taking themselves way too seriously.

    The title refers to your expected condition when you see this movie. Oh well. It'll be HUGE on video.

    The best thing about a movie like this is I never have to see it again.

    I'm going to beat my head into a wall until I relieve myself of the memory of this film that was, well, retarded.

    A stupid summer movie.

    Holy Man is just a dumb romantic comedy passing itself off as something else.

    Is this what Sean Penn has come to in his 40s? He hasn't appeared this retarded since he was married to Madonna.

    I can't really remember the last time I saw a movie with this much biting satire and brilliance that was utterly excruciating half the time.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 10 Ron Wells
    This masterpiece started out at around three stars, but after the credits, it just got sillier and more lurid.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 10 Ron Wells
    Aside from the pesky problems of tone and lazy writing, the whole move is a little choppy.
