Baltimore Sun
Levinson's quirky caper is rich with laughs.
80
New Times (L.A.)
Delightful almost in spite of itself.
70
Variety
The disparate but highly skilled leading trio of Bruce Willis, Billy Bob Thornton and Cate Blanchett keeps this road movie engaging even when it veers giddily onto the shoulder.
50
A comedy that might have made Butch and Sundance jump off a cliff.
50
Film Threat
The action-comedy could have easily been a delightful romp thanks to its A-list cast and well-written script, but poor editing causes Bandits to be just another hum-ho movie.
50
New York Magazine (Vulture)
What we're getting in this movie isn't necessarily better; it's just more.
50
Portland Oregonian
The picture's strength is comedy -- but the love and crime stories too often drag, falter or just plain frustrate.
40
Rolling Stone
What started as cute becomes cloying and bloated. Charm should never feel like it weighs a ton.
40
L.A. Weekly
Too long, too slow, too self-consciously chatty and too much at the mercy of a slim premise that doesn't wear well under endless repetition.
38
Charlotte Observer
Long before this interminable film reaches its bogus finale, you'll realize that the people in it aren't real.
