    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    What we have is the case of a movie with a straight man (Jason Lee) who really is funny, but with a comic (Tom Green) who sadly isn't. show more

    When the most notable thing a film offers is the sight of Dennis Farina in drag, you can't expect much. show more

    While Stealing Harvard may be a chucklehead comedy, Lee is oddly touching and funny. Mostly because, unlike Green, he's not aggressively trying to make us laugh. show more

    The question is, how did the producers get the amiable, talented Jason Lee to Boogie Board down the toilet with (Green)? show more

    Had Stealing Harvard merely been a stupid movie about people stuck in a string of silly moments, it could have gotten by on charm. As written by Peter Tolan and directed by Bruce McCulloch (''Kids in the Hall'') it's a stupid movie about stupid people. show more

    Mark Caro Chicago Tribune

    Some actors steal scenes. Tom Green just gives them a bad odor. This self-infatuated goofball is far from the only thing wrong with the clumsy comedy. show more

    Rick Groen The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    A few early laughs scattered around a plot as thin as it is repetitious. There's talent in this picture, both before and behind the camera, but virtually none of it gets on the screen. show more

    Michael Sragow Baltimore Sun

    Like Adam Sandler's "Mr. Deeds," this is a hybrid, hipster-cornball movie that wants to celebrate common folk but unapologetically uses words like "trailer trash" to describe them. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    It has no edge, no hunger to be better than it is. It ambles pleasantly through its inanity, like a guest happy to be at a boring party. show more

    Jonathan Foreman New York Post

    Stinks even by the standards of late summer movie garbage. show more
