    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    What started as cute becomes cloying and bloated. Charm should never feel like it weighs a ton. show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    Taken as a whole, Bandits is a success, a two-hour entertainment that floats along, stumbling into various genres, discovering its moments. show more

    Claudia Puig USA Today

    It's a rare romantic comedy/road picture that's not only flat-out funny, but also presents complex and well-developed characters. show more

    The main reason to see Bandits is celebrity actors riffing with each other. That's not a bad reason, though. These two actors are also skillful comedians. show more

    Billy Bob Thornton, wearing a succession of toupees, wigs, fake facial hair, and funny hats, and twitching more than a horse's behind, is the best reason to see Bandits. show more

    The picture is written and acted as a lark and a romp. show more

    Lou Lumenick New York Post

    Good value for the money, a funny, character-driven action comedy with three disparate stars -- who have great chemistry together. show more

    Rene Rodriguez Miami Herald

    Bandits isn't much more than a pleasant dawdle, one made extra-likable by Thornton and Blanchett, whose ace performances keep the film zipping along even at its most predictable. show more
