Smoothly directed and acted with glee... showing quick-witted comic spirit.

A terrifically clever film; has a soft-boilded heart.

Rolling Stone
Inspired funny business that allows Martin to hilariously torpedo Hollywood's corrupt heart.
75
San Francisco Examiner
Priceless enough to flush "Metro," "Dr. Dolittle" and "Holy Man" from memory.

Variety
So lunatic that it creates as much puzzled disbelief as it does carefree delight.
63
Charlotte Observer
Amiable bundle of broad, easy laughs rather than bitingly fierce satire.
60
Chicago Reader
Enjoyable but thin.
50
Village Voice
Never hits a note of high hilarity.

Christian Science Monitor
Bowfinger is mediocre . . . can be irksome, tedious, and hard to sit through.
40
Salon.com
Mechanical plot that seems dull even before it laboriously clanks and screeches into motion.
