What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Debashine Thangevelo A case of writer's block
Jacques Liebenberg Moenie veel van hierdie vervelige en voorspelbare verhaal verwag nie.
John Anderson Steady stream of humiliating setups.
Peter Feldman On final analysis, Mr Woodcock is too awkward in its mix of gentle humour and wacky antics to work successfully — an extra dose of nastiness may have rectified this problem.
Paul Arendt You don't go looking for high art in a film called Mr Woodcock, but in truth the title character's name is the funniest thing in an otherwise lame and confused comedy.
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Roger Ebert To laugh at parts of this film would indicate one has a streak of Woodcockism in oneself. But to gaze in stupefied fascination is perfectly understandable.
Philip Brown Far from perfect, this modest comedy will hit home with anyone who ever saw gym class as an indignity.
While a few bits of slapstick elicited a chuckle or two from yours truly, I otherwise sat (or more accurately, squirmed) in my seat, stone-faced, waiting for the credits to roll and put us out of our misery.
Tomatometer Lacks the comic energy to make the most of its intriguing premise.
