  1. The usually reliable director Michael Caton-Jones hasn't a clue how to freshen up such stale material.
  2. Rent the devastating "The Boys of St. Vincent" to see how slick and hollow Sleepers is, how little it reveals about the real nature and effect of child abuse. [28 October 1996, p. 74]

  3. Matthew Lillard of "Scream," flies like his nickname and tries to bring the film some comic relief not already provided by the stultifying stupidity of the script.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 10 Critic Score
    A disappointingly slack, hackneyed comedy.
  4. Every once in a while a film comes along that's so inexplicably ghastly that there's just no point in making nice about it.
  5. If you harbor any fond feelings for the original, stay far away from this mess.

  6. A disaster: dull, predictable, at times cringe-worthy.
