Chicago Sun-Times
Provides an untidy and frustrating but never boring look at his life and times.
63
USA Today
A film dealing fully with Hoffman's final years might have had a lot more punch.
63
Boston Globe
An earnest but ultimately scattered effort to put Yippie radical Abbie Hoffman's best foot posthumously forward.

Chicago Tribune
Feels more like a music video than a serious look back at a time, a place and a very smart, funny and unconventional man.
58
Entertainment Weekly
Scrappy and rambling and overly earnest.
50
San Francisco Chronicle
Won't work until the film comes out on video.

New York Daily News
An admiring but overly simplified walk down memory lane.

New York Post
Vincent D'Onofrio does capture Hoffman's charisma and nuttiness - and he's the only reason to resist the temptation to skip this exasperating movie.
50
San Francisco Examiner
It's often a lapsed, under-informed documentary with restagings.
45
Mr. Showbiz
Never better than middling, despite its best intentions.
25
Christian Science Monitor
This superficial treatment makes so many dubious decisions - oversimplifying issues, for instance, so there'll be more time for high-flying emotion - that 1960s veterans may be moved to protest rather than praise.
