  • It's got unpredictable plot twists and unexpected laughs coming out of dark corners. The sharp-edged film also looks terrific. show more

  • Within Clay Pigeons is a smaller story that might have involved us more, but it's buried by overkill. show more

  • The movie seems so convinced of its own entertainment value that it has neglected to factor in the elements that make a comedic thriller more than just a facile exercise -- i.e., suspense, tension, heart. Being amused by plot turns is not the same as caring, and Clay Pigeons never inspires you to grab your armrest or catch your breath. [25 Sept 1998] show more
