    Entertainment Weekly Lisa Schwarzbaum

    It's young-Hollywood-driven business as usual in this derivative, nasty, and ultimately empty drama.

    USA Today Mike Clark

    The young Pigeon turks who no doubt think they've made a hip black comedy should be forced to see it in a theater of non-sycophants, where only an occasional exasperated exhale signifies the audience isn't dead yet. [25 Sept 1998]

    ReelViews James Berardinelli

    The final half-hour contains enough contrivances and holes to challenge even the most generous movie-goer's suspension of disbelief.

    Chicago Sun-Times Roger Ebert

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

    Chicago Tribune Mark Caro

    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]
