    Provides an untidy and frustrating but never boring look at his life and times.

    An earnest but ultimately scattered effort to put Yippie radical Abbie Hoffman's best foot posthumously forward.
  3. 60
    It's a compelling story, and very of its tumultuous time.

    Throws in a lot of detail but withholds the real secrets of Abbie Hoffman. His life was no fairy tale. Why should it be filmed to end like one?
  5. 40
    It couldn't be any less revolutionary in style. It is straighter than a guitar string.
  6. 30
    Although Steal This Movie isn't worth the price of admission, it is worth sneaking in to see D'Onofrio and Garofalo's splendid performances.
  7. 10
    At once simple-mindedly didactic and utterly chaotic, Steal This Movie! is interspersed with fake headlines and botched history.
