Review by Christy Lemire
Hawn and Schumer are stuck playing barely-there characters stumbling from one wacky scenario to the next.

Review by Sheila O'Malley
German artist and filmmaker Julian Rosefeldt has collaborated with Cate Blanchett to create something entirely unique and not easily described or classified.
Review by Matt Zoller Seitz
Ritchie keeps rushing us along for two hours, as if to make absolutely certain that we never have time to absorb any character or moment, much less revel in the glorious, cheeky ridiculousness of the whole thing.
There's an earnestness and a fundamental truth to this familial saga—as well as an appealing, low-budget scrappiness—that consistently make it hum.
Review by Susan Wloszczyna
This slight yet diverting road trip that meanders through the heart of France cares more for cheese courses and wine pairings than about what my husband likes to call "making good time."
Review by Glenn Kenny
The posturing leads to an ending that's unsatisfying even on the level of pessimism it aspires to.
Burshtein allows some loose and unexplained story threads to dangle needlessly along the way, but she does know how to ratchet up the tension and keep us guessing to the very end.
Review by Godfrey Cheshire
The film makes the case that his career links ideologically charged figures from Roy Cohn to Richard Nixon to Ronald Reagan to Donald Trump.
I wound up admiring the movie for its ambition while unsatisfied with its achievement.
Review by Simon Abrams
An ugly film whose ambitions are never matched by its creators' limited abilities
Review by Nick Allen
Treat-sized food-for-thought from a wonderfully silly director.
Review by Vikram Murthi
A rambling road trip story with no real point to it.
The special kind of history project that can expand your film knowledge as much as it might warm your heart.
An obnoxious story about revenge and self-destruction.
A likeable but listless comedy with one great scene.
