    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    Funny and not-funny, slapstick and slapdash, Welcome to Collinwood is a seriously uneven caper comedy in which a bunch of really fine character actors get to act really, really silly. show more

    Jack Mathews New York Daily News

    It takes us about half the film to adjust to its quirkiness, and we leave the theater with both laughter cramps and the feeling that it should have been funnier a lot longer. show more

    David Sterritt Christian Science Monitor

    The farce is energetically written, breezily acted, and never quite as dumb as the lunkheads it's about. show more

    Wesley Morris Boston Globe

    At some point we're flashed a junkyard billboard telling us that Collinwood is the ''Beirut of Cleveland'' - yes, but here, it's by way of Looney Tunes. show more

    Liam Lacey The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    Filled with a sweet, loopy sensibility and some fresh comic turns, Welcome to Collinwood is a low-budget American film that falls into the good-but-slight category. show more

    Chris Kaltenbach Baltimore Sun

    Clearly a spiritual descendant of the old Looney Toons cartoons; it's not hard to imagine Daffy, Bugs, Porky and their pals in the starring roles here. And that's a cinematic pedigree worth cherishing. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    A wacky and eccentric heist comedy with many virtues, but it is also a remake of "Big Deal on Madonna Street" (1958), a movie much beloved by me. Some scenes are so close to the original it's kind of uncanny. show more

    Mark Caro Chicago Tribune

    Even at a mere 82 minutes, the movie is guilty of killing time. It's not a complete Kaputschnik, but it's sure no Bellini. show more

    Megan Lehmann New York Post

    Doesn't have the polish of "Ocean's Eleven" - but it does have George Clooney. show more

    Ken Fox TV Guide

    Populated by a great ensemble cast and oozing a grubby sort of charm. show more
