Critic Reviews for Dead Heat on a Merry-Go-Round

All Critics (5)

Lags until it hits the climactic caper scene.

March 13, 2010 | Rating: C | Full Review…

Dated and very dull.

October 6, 2005 | Rating: 1/5

Serviceable film best known for the film debut of Harrison Ford as the bell hop!

December 18, 2004 | Rating: 3/5

Coburn is a toothsome, lanky, wild-haired and likable rogue.
