Critic Reviews for Protocol

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (2)

"Protocol" is the kind of corny screwball comedy you thought nobody made anymore.

January 4, 2018 | Full Review…

The first hour of Protocol is so much fun, and the Goldie Hawn character is such an engaging original, that at first I couldn't believe they were going to throw away all that work by going for a standard Hollywood ending. But they did.

October 23, 2004 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

...a watchable yet often excessively erratic endeavor.

November 29, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Goldies Hawn is irrestible in this funny movie. But the treatment of Arabs is groanable and cliched.

Audience Reviews for Protocol

Non-offensive. Unexciting. Unfunny. Sounds like the perfect fit for a film about the State Department in the Reagan era.
