    Levinson's quirky caper is rich with laughs.

    The main reason to see Bandits is celebrity actors riffing with each other. That's not a bad reason, though. These two actors are also skillful comedians.
  3. The film is such a good-natured and easygoing ride that it's ultimately very hard to resist.
  4. Boston Globe

    Isn't awful, but neither is it the tangy entertainment it could have been.
  5. A comedy that might have made Butch and Sundance jump off a cliff.
  6. 50
    Mined for comedy and milked for drama, though what results is diminished by the very framing device contrived to punch it up.
  7. Mr. Showbiz
    Reviewed by: Kevin Maynard
    This self-consciously kooky road movie about an unusual trio of bank robbers aims for Hal Ashby misanthropy, but hasn't a single emotionally grounded or plausible moment to justify its purely cinematic eccentricities.

    Very intresting movie, but the last 30 mins gets too boring. Overall I recommend it.
