The Mod Squad (1999)



Critic Consensus: The Mod Squad aims for stylish cool and thrilling adventure, but collapses in an incoherent jumble of dated source material and unintentional hilarity.

Critic Reviews for The Mod Squad

All Critics (63) | Top Critics (20)

There are only two possible reactions to the film version of The Mod Squad: Either you hate it or you really hate it.

March 21, 2017

Whatever countercultural kick the original Mod Squad had going for it, it has long since faded like a favorite pair of blue jeans, the kind you remember fondly but wouldn't dream of wearing again.

March 21, 2017 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

The film's resolute failure is clearly a group effort requiring not just an awful script and flat-footed direction, but also terrible acting, an intrusive and derivative score, and a plot that seems to have been lifted from an unproduced Baretta teleplay.

Nothing really fits together and just to make it worse, the movie is ugly.

March 21, 2017 | Full Review…

The Mod Squad is one of the flimsiest excuses for a movie I've seen in ages.

March 21, 2017

Maybe someone thought a new Mod Squad would be hip, but it's just a big jive turkey.
