    This is not high art. It might not qualify as low art. But it is 90 minutes or so during which people can put their brains on the shelf and enjoy a few laughs.

    Reno 911's anti-heroes are doomed, deluded losers, but they engender a strange sympathy all the same.
  3. The characters are perfectly evolved screwups and the premise has potential. It lacks only the discipline of a 30-minute episode -- or a YouTube video.

    Moviedom is littered with the wreckage of ill-conceived small-to-big-screen adaptations, but Reno 911!: Miami is not the disaster it could have been. Fans of the TV show need not shudder. You will not see sacrilege.
  5. Come to think of it, 84 minutes isn't much of a sacrifice for a few laughs, even if the material is almost as hit-or-miss as our heroes' shooting skills.
  6. 50
    Recommended only for die-hard fans of the TV show. Others are advised to wait until this is available in a smaller format.
  7. 20
    This is mostly a listless hodgepodge of half-improvised whatever, the seven lead characters so flatly conceived they're like the Keystone Kops (without the chops).

    LOVED IT!!!! It is not supposed to be fine art or oscar material. It is supposed to make you laugh outloud at how inept the deputies and Dangle are. Hilarious brainless entertainment. :) Expand

    Reno 911 did what it was made to do. Make people laugh. I laughed my butt off.

    The opening scene, with Danny DeVito, immediately let me know that this movie was going to disappoint - uninspired, contrived, embarassing. Don't get me wrong, there are some hilarious scenes (especially the shot of the motel where you can see into all of the officers' room windows at once and what they're all simultaneously "doing"). But for every one hilarious scene, there's one that only bemuses you, and two that make you groan. Expand

    I expected so much more from this gifted comedy group. They should have just thrown together a Reno 911 greatest moments. Now THAT would be a movie!

    Amusing but really stupid. Just wait till it's out on DVD and borrow it from a friend. Keep your ten bucks for gas.

    If you thought the TV show was bad, just wait until you see this. Someone must have sold their soul to Satan to get this pile of horse manure into theaters. Expand
