Rolling Stone
It's Coogan's breakthrough star performance that holds it all together. He's sensational.
75
The movie is an ideal showcase for the talents of Coogan.
63
A rather mediocre experience, offering sporadic laughs but never achieving the level of consistent humor necessary to make this memorable.
63
Chicago Tribune
The film, which really is sloppy, slips around in terms of tone and goes every which way.
60
The Hollywood Reporter
Attaining somewhat of a bad parody of a comedy, screenwriters Andrew Fleming and Pam Brady have slapped together a string of gags in a hit-and-miss dither. Some of it is quite brainy.
50
Coogan's mopiness is oddly riveting.
50
Amusing but unevenly inspired tale of a deluded high school drama teacher's attempt to stage a career-saving extravaganza has some laughs, to be sure.
50
Village Voice
Not nearly as uproarious as it should be.
50
Hamlet 2 is as needy as its hero -- because it wants not to be probing or profound or even witty but, above all else, to be loved.
50
Only in its aggressively imaginative profanity is the film consistent.
