  1. A real dud, with few laughs, no characterization, little story, a cluster of stereotypes and clichés and just plain nothing for Foxx to do.
  2. It's by far the worst comedy either he (Carrey) or the Farrelly Brothers have ever made.
  3. It's hard to believe that five different writers took credit for this feeble story and script. Who says failure is an orphan?

    A comedy that surpasses stupidity, and not in entertaining ways.
  4. The psychobabble silliness passed off as investigative insight here is laughable at best.
  5. Less offensive than embarrassing, at least for the chagrined performers.
  6. The attainment it achieves is in the depths of pointless, mean-spirited exploitation.
  7. Not that there are any actual jokes to be had. The film simply jumps to the punch lines, a non-stop barrage of crude dialogue and vulgar sight gags that passes as humor among adolescent boys. Who exactly is the audience for this R-rated film? The terminally immature?
  8. The disingenuous attempt to give the tawdry story some kind of social import only makes the tinny caricatures more insincere, while his erotic display of 15-year-old girls isn't a satire of a sexualized culture, it's just dirty.
  9. The inconsistencies and continuity errors are staggering.
  10. Staggeringly awful.
  11. A disaster on all levels.
  12. There is potential for laughs in a satire of rich people spending big money on religious galas, but that is not even the real subject of the picture.
  13. Disastrously unfunny sex farce.
  14. It's recidivist Murphy: bad-skit comedy populated by caricatures in search of a movie.
  15. It's a shrill cacophony of puerile clich├ęs about men and women and sex, delivered in adrenaline-driven harangues and arrogant lectures. When the stage clears, all that's left is the unpleasant odor of all that hot air.
  16. Mary Reilly has the distinction of being the most pretentious, the most ponderous, the most utterly suspenseless. [23 Feb 1996]

    Surely, they couldn't be true. Surely, supermodel Cindy Crawford's Fair Game - her debut as a feature film star - couldn't be as bad as the gossip suggested. [03 Nov 1995]

  17. This shambling mess -- offers nothing but a lesson in how not to make a movie.
