Mr. Showbiz
A cross between a Hogarth painting and an MTV video, Plunkett & Macleane cuts quite a swath.

Boston Globe
Scott makes it easy to overlook the conventionality beneath his sometimes overdone but almost always enjoyable combination of atmosphere and propulsiveness.

Miami Herald
A tad too raunchy for its own good.

Baltimore Sun
Too much fun to ignore.

Entertainment Weekly
Watchable in a facile, trashy way. Unfortunately, most of the movie is mired in sludge, slime, mud, blood, and studiously dank cinematography.

USA Today
The plunk-ing of a rap/disco soundtrack onto a movie about debtors' prisons and 18th century British highwaymen?

Philadelphia Inquirer
Cheerful mishmash.
50
New York Daily News
Its noisily inappropriate pop-rock score overwhelms its meager subplots about British class conflict.
50
Charlotte Observer
The whole thing seems to have been faked up for our amusement, like a circus freak show.
38
Chicago Sun-Times
A film overgrown with so many directorial flourishes that the heroes need machetes to hack their way to within view of the audience.
25
San Francisco Chronicle
A repellent, stupid film.
