  1. This energetically acted, creatively directed comedy-drama has every ingredient for success except a satisfying finale.
  2. 75
    Like Schumacher, director Gregor Schnitzler is more preoccupied with his characters' looks than their behavior. You might not buy the ideas. But you'll definitely want the T-shirt.

    Enthralling, entertaining feature.
  4. 50
    Schnitzler's film has a great hook, some clever bits and well-drawn, if standard issue, characters, but is still only partly satisfying. The problem may very well be one of cultural translation.

    The group's credo, "Live free, stay high," only confirms your worst suspicions about their real motives. And that makes it hard to feel any nostalgia for the good old days or condemn the members who came to their senses and moved on.
  6. 50
    A blitz of anti-authoritarian poses so feel-good you'd think someone was selling you sneakers.
  7. 20
    Even if the time were somehow right for a madcap comedy about terrorists, What To Do In Case Of Fire would still look pretty lousy.
