    As the anticipated follow-up to Roman Coppola’s marvelous 2001 film “CQ,” this is something of a letdown, but as a breezy romp it could be far, far worse.

    The moody picture even swings toward hopeful in its final minutes, as it tries to celebrate Charles as the man he is, faults and all. It's enough to leave you wondering whether even a glimpse inside this mind is too much.

    No less sweet for being unoriginal: A guy (Charlie Sheen) mourns a bad breakup with the woman he loves (Katheryn Winnick). The execution, on the other hand, is perilously self-absorbed.

    The actor/walking disaster known as Charlie Sheen gives a perfectly credible performance here. It’s the rest of the film that tries your patience.

    For all its visual pizazz A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III has the jerky momentum of a collection of disconnected skits loosely thrown together with only the vaguest notion of where it’s heading or what it all means. At best it is a mildly diverting goof with a charmless lead performance. Its underlying misogyny leaves a sour taste.

    That was probably writer-director Roman Coppola's main responsibility in "Charles Swan," to give the audience a character worth watching. Get that right, and everything else falls into place. Get that wrong, and the audience finds out just how long 84 minutes can be. The answer: really long.

    It isn’t a movie so much as a feature-length perfume commercial for a Charlie Sheen signature cologne with gorgeous packaging and absolutely nothing inside.

    i thought it was amazing, really funny, heartfelt, and incredibly good to look at, those visuals are incredible, the cast does a good job, and i don't think i've laughed harder at crazy feminists flatout attacking charlie sheen... Expand

    i enjoyed this movie a lot, i still don't know why, but hell, i guess i'm a massive charlie sheen fanboy, it has a tasteful visual style, some good performances, and militarized feminists... need i say more? Expand

    it's well acted, it looks good, it's strange, but it isn't too funny, i'm afraid, and it makes little sense, but it's a good night out if you're drunk, i'd recommend renting it and watching it with some friends, preferably wasted. Expand

    this movie was a bust. great cast, bad script, confusing, and not in a good way. much more could have been done with this movie to have made it good at least. better luck next time Roman Collapse

    The co-writer of Moonrise Kingdom and relative of one of the best directors ever (Francis Ford Coppola) disappoints everyone with this poorly directed and written comedy not to mention a terrible performance by Charlie Sheen. I expected more. Expand

    If you want to watch this movie because of visionary director Roman Coppola, don't even bother. AGITMOCS is just time waste garbage. And yes this is a 84 min film. But 84 minutes can be this long and tiring. Expand
