Critic Reviews for Cellmates
If you find the moral conversion of a militant lifelong bigot difficult to imagine, try the casting of the burly, fraying Mr. Sizemore as a romantic leading man.
A near complete exercise in mirthlessness and atonal satire, "Cellmates" is a sentence, all right.
Sizemore certainly does his best to elevate the material, but every time the movie threatens to kick into gear, something generic or even sitcom-ish in its degree of cliche derails it.
It's all grimly, predictably plotted without ever once being interesting.
The film offers Tom Sizemore the perfect opportunity to prove himself worthy of a comeback. Alas, he fails spectacularly.
Audience Reviews for Cellmates
I quite enjoyed this movie, even if it got a little schmaltzy by the end, its heart is most definitely in the right place, so I can't complain too much. You can definitely tell the movie had a non-existent budget, but they made the most of it. And, really, the cast definitely elevates the movie several notches. It's not like you're getting all time great comedy performances but they're solid and fun. The story itself is typical, you've seen it before and will see it again, but, again, the movie's heart was in the right place so and at least it was an effectively told story of this character learning the error of his ways. Not perfect but effective. So yea I enjoyed this movie a lot in spite of the rating. A good movie and I'd definitely watch again if the opportunity came up.
