Slow, boring, characters not impressive at all.

Village Voice
A movie that, in its unconditional embrace of an all-male subculture, amounts to little more than a rote circle jerk. Full Review
Dana Stevens
The New York Times
The proliferating subplots require many big emotional confrontations, so the movie seems to reach its climax 20 minutes in, and then every 15 minutes or so thereafter. This is fairly exhausting. Full Review
Jack Mathews
New York Daily News
Stole so many details from the earlier film, "The Hustler," that you have to think of it as either a bad parody or an unfortunate homage. Full Review
Lisa Schwarzbaum
Entertainment Weekly
Plays out like a variation on an old design dictum: If you can't make it good, make it big. Full Review
Manohla Dargis
Los Angeles Times
It isn't that nothing happens in Poolhall Junkies, it's that nothing interesting does. Full Review
