Critic Reviews for Free Enterprise
A celebration of risk-taking in the spirit of the heroism of Captain Kirk.
The fun of Free Enterprise, which occasionally runs a bit thin but is mostly sustained by the filmmakers' verve and wit, lies in its many visual and verbal references to popular culture trivia.
The in-joke -peppered dialogue is consistently brilliant and the genial Shatner allows himself to be sent up nicely.
Audience Reviews for Free Enterprise
This film could have been terribly amusing but it commits the greatest sin - it is terribly boring. Poor William Shatner. I hope he was paid well.
The cut I saw of this movie was a little long and a lot of the scenes could have been shortened or cut out all together. The characters were good and the journey they go on was good to watch. It had a lot of fn stuff in it but people not into the fan stuff should be able to follow the flick. I'm a little suprised that Shatner was in the flick as he is playing himself and comes off as a little crazy. I didn't mind the rap at the end either.
A dopey, low-rent Swingers knock-off that opts to dry hump film geek and comic book culture instead of swing dancing and martini culture. The references are great even if the execution was really weak. The scenes with Shatner are worthwhile, but for as much as this movie is right up my alley, it just came off as really contrived and from what I caught (there was a point where my friends and I took what would become a permanent break from it), it never really came together. And when I saw the rest from oddly enough where I left off upon my initial viewing it was even worse. The climactic party with Shatner rapping/delivering a monologue was nothing short of awful.
