Critic Reviews for Nadine

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (1)

I didn't laugh very much in this movie. There were a couple of genuinely funny moments, but they didn't build and the movie didn't redeem itself by making me very interested in the characters.

January 1, 2000 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

The uneven, insubstantial slapstick comedy is good for a few chuckles playing the white trash joke card.

July 25, 2015 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

An innocuous little wisp of a romantic comedy, spiced up with some chases, escapes, and even a few gunfights.

July 3, 2005 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Modest but occasionally entertaining flick with a nice pairing of Bridges and Basinger

April 7, 2004 | Rating: 3/5

Maybe this film is responsible for the death of the drive-in?

September 17, 2002 | Rating: 2/5

Basinger and Bridges keep things hopping

Audience Reviews for Nadine

Jeff Bridges and Kim Basenger with real heavy accents ya'll, get inta all kinda trouble. It looks very dated, but it's just about watchable, because of the great actors.
