    If you love KISS, you'll probably see this movie anyway. If you don't, there's no point.

    Does for psychedelics what "Boogie Nights" does for cocaine; displaying in graphical detail the ultimate failure of drugs as an escape route.

    Garofalo is amazing, as always, and the film is almost about her as much as the leads. The recreation of the casts' high school years is wickedly funny and dead on.

    Best of all, Robert Downey Jr., as Rick's seedy private eye provides a little comic relief at his own expense.

    Hey, I'm not saying it's bad. It's kind of entertaining, what I can recall of it after two days. It's, uh, okay. Just okay, though.

    Lee gives us cross-section of characters, almost none of whom escape the summer unchanged.

    The title refers to your expected condition when you see this movie. Oh well. It'll be HUGE on video.

    I completely dreaded sitting through this movie...Two-hour purgatory.

    At least the 20 people who saw it with me -- found it hysterically funny. On the other hand, they all seemed pretty stoned.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Ron Wells
    At least the studio hired enough likable scene-stealing actors and comedians to carry the bloated carcass of this film over the course of two hours.

    The stars have zero chemistry and the movie is none too thrilling.

    After half a century, does the story hold up? Eh, pretty much. In the end, the story doesn't really matter that much as this is really a vehicle for the amazing visuals.

    As always, Don Cheadle is fantastic, but the film belongs to Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

    Aside from all the known material on public record the filmmakers chose not to use, Howard isn't even capable of believably bringing this off.

    David Schwimmer, our whiny friend, is used to good effect as Heche's boyfriend.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 70 Ron Wells
    It's a harsh lesson, but this movie is more than able to grab and hold your attention for it. I just wouldn't bring a date.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 20 Ron Wells
    The best thing about a movie like this is I never have to see it again.

    Gallo transcends the medium in a manner I only associate with David Lynch. It's brilliantly spooky.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 40 Ron Wells
    In the end, the whole shebang comes off like a bunch of snotty, rich white kids screwing each other and screwing each other over.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 70 Ron Wells
    Quentin actually made a REAL movie, with believable characters and performances, rather than just repositories for clever dialog.

    Unfortunately, the script is a light romantic comedy and unwilling to go the extra distance to really make it stick.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Ron Wells
    Scorcese has made one of his best and most personal films...Kundun is also mercifully free of white teachers or saviors, such as, oh, say, Brad Pitt?
    • 76 Metascore

    A very funny and painfully relevant two hours of entertainment.
    • 52 Metascore

    This is a big, silly film. Is it full of explosions and one-liners? Of course. Is it entertaining? Of course.

    World Traveler did seem completely aimless for the first third. However, once I comprehended where Freundlich was going with this, I began to really enjoy where the film was taking me.

    This is a family film. There's a great deal of wackiness.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 70 Ron Wells
    While we do get a bit of gore, the movie is really about this wacky bunch of people jumping on each other's nerves, kind of a zany hero's journey.

    • 80 Ron Wells
    Some of the acting may not be the best and many of the points aren't made with a soft touch, but damn, I can't think of another film about addiction with a more accurate view from the inside.

    Clooney has finally made a GOOD movie.

    The portrait drawn by this film is of a man loved and/or respected by nearly all that have known him.
