James Berardinelli quote iconFreakonomics does some intellectually intriguing things with subjects that could easily be considered, at least based on a cursory description, to be dry and uninteresting, and that makes it worth an investment of 95 minutes.

Tomatometer quote iconMore disjointed and less compelling than the book it's based on, Freakonomics isn't quite as entertaining or educational as it should be.
