    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    Could 1960s-style sex, drugs and rock & roll really have been this dull? show more

    Almost so bad it's good. Almost. show more

    Claudia Puig USA Today

    Glaringly lacking in the film are any original Stones songs. The group, who fired Jones just before his death, must not have thought much of the movie if they didn't allow their music to be used. Smart fellows. show more

    Jack Mathews New York Daily News

    The good news here is that Woolley and his writers have taken the mystery surrounding Jones' tragic 1969 death as their main interest, and have adopted as fact the long-cherished rumor that the blond rocker's drowning was a case of murder. It may be speculative history, but at least it's a story. show more

    A disappointingly dreary affair. show more

    Michael Wilmington Chicago Tribune

    It's a depressing story made even more of a downer by the absence of any Stones-performed music from their prime '60s years. show more

    Stoned carries a freaked-out buzz of nostalgia for the era when celebs willfully destroyed themselves for our amusement. show more

    Maitland McDonagh TV Guide

    Newcomer Gregory never captures the mercurial charisma for which Jones was famous (and which Jagger notoriously channeled in his movie debut, "Performance"), without which his story is just another cautionary tale about fast times, intemperate passions and bad dope. show more

    Premiere

    A clichéd rock-star film. show more

    Ty Burr Boston Globe

    All the pieces are in place for an incisive tale of Brit-pop ego and madness, but filmmaker Stephen Woolley -- a celebrated UK producer ("The Crying Game") making his directing debut -- lets the story get away from him. show more
