  1. A harmless little mess of a movie whose cast you've mostly heard of, including Tim Allen, who also directed.

    Looking and sounding like a second-tier '80s made-for-cabler, Crazy on the Outside is the sort of bland trifle one might watch to kill time during an extended flight.
  3. With neither the dramatic nor comedic aspects of the story line being remotely convincing, the best efforts of the talented cast go for naught.

    Tim Allen returns to lowest-common-denominator comedy as the star of his own ill-advised, irritating directorial debut.
  5. John Peaslee's Screenwriting 101-style script has merely left everyone floating on their own.
  6. Each actor appears to have received the script to a different movie, while Allen adds his own directorial touch of sexual vulgarity.
  7. 0
    Allen screws up his directing debut with a script that smothers his wit in a blanket of bland.

    Tim Allen creates a film thats all about him. One would think with all that "star firepower" that this film might cook. It fails as a comedy, as a drama and as a film. Karle Warren (Loren -Judging Amy) has 2 lines. Ray Liotta plays a heavy but his role is not defined. Sigourney Weaver plays Allens sister yet her role is more of a cameo. In fact the heavy hitters in the film are mostly cameo roles. A waste of time but a payday for the actors. Expand
