    Tells us nothing we didn't already know, and it tells it over and over and over.

    Here's what I really like about The Mod Squad: Nobody in it gives a damn.

    So predictable it could have been written by a chimp who's watched too much TV, the huge movie is as dumb as it is loud, and it's way too loud.

    One thing the makers of Saving Silverman do not have to worry about: Hannibal Lecter will never visit them to eat their brains. That is because they have no brains.

    The dialogue is fast but bad, the acting is loud but awful and the morality is chaste but unromantic. As for the food, it looks vulgar.

    Enervated, torpid, slack, dreary and, oh yes, nasty, brutish and long.

    It's all too silly to bother. Without style and attitude, nothing gets old faster than horror.

    There should be a special room in Hell where the makers of films like Patch Adams are sent.

    The kinetics aren't that good, the twaddle is off the charts and the characters seem written by monkeys on amphetamines with crayons.
