Critic Reviews for Crazy People

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (5)

Moore is the one who keeps the champagne bubbling. He is in top form, a delightfully demented leprechaun.

I wonder if they have a squad out in Hollywood named the Movie Police, who swoop down on screenplays and enforce all of the obligatory cliches and story formulas.

January 1, 2000 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

An abysmal, painfully unfunny comedy.

October 9, 2005 | Rating: 0/5

Hilarious satire of the advertising industry!
