Critic Reviews for Million Dollar Mystery

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3)

How much do you want a million dollars? If your answer is, "Bad enough to sit through just about anything," then go ahead, I dare ya, try to last through the whole thing.

I hate to make the film itself an afterthought, but that's what it is. All things considered, it could be a lot worse.

As nearly as I could ascertain, it is not absolutely necessary to see this movie in order to find the million dollars. All the clues are in the Glad boxes. That is a good thing, because the search may easily last longer than the movie's run.

With Million Dollar Mystery, Hollywood achieves an apotheosis of sorts. It isn't so much a movie as a promo for a promo.

By the fade-out, the viewer have been given clues as to where a million dollars is stashed, the pretext the movie's producers used to pull in an audience. It didn't work.
