Critic Reviews for O.C. and Stiggs

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (1)

Its notion of American artificiality runs so deep that the film begins and ends at a man-made surfing beach in the middle of the desert.

February 11, 2006 | Rating: 3/5

I found little to like in this incoherent, gross, and juvenile farce by film-maker Robert Altman.

March 18, 2013 | Rating: C | Full Review…

...a massive failure on every single level...

December 7, 2005 | Rating: 0/4 | Full Review…

(Altman's) distinctive, observational satire is poles apart from the sophomoric humor that trademarks the Lampoon

Audience Reviews for O.C. and Stiggs


Silly but watchable teen movie. Similar in style to the American Pie movies.
