    Wall Street Journal Joe Morgenstern

    A rube's-eye view of Hollywood, but the rube is weary, and those around him seem to be suffering from terminal torpor.

    USA Today Mike Clark

    When movies have degraded to the point that Tyson is acting more than Quentin Tarantino is directing, maybe it is time for an industry shutdown, strike-induced or otherwise.

    Chicago Sun-Times Roger Ebert

    It may not be brilliant, but who would you rather your kids took as a role model: Crocodile Dundee, David Spade or Tom Green?

    The punchlines are as tired as Hogan looks.

    Chicago Tribune John Petrakis

    The film is surprisingly easy to sit through, digest and even enjoy. Why? A lot has to do with Hogan's well-documented charisma as a performer.

Iffy for 10+

Painfully stupid but kids love it. Go figure.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that in addition to the strong, an important element of the plot is that Sue and Mick are not married and have a son together. Characters smoke and drink. Characters are in peril, including guns, knives, and fierce animals, though it does not get too intense. There are a couple of jump-out-at-you surprises that may upset younger kids.

  • Families can talk about how people in families support each other's careers and about how children learn to think about what they might do when they grow up. They might want to look up Los Angeles and the Outback on a map and talk about what they might like to see if they are able to visit.
