    Entertainment Weekly Owen Gleiberman

    This may be the only would-be blockbuster that's a sprawling, dissociated mess on purpose. It's a perverse landmark: the first postmodern Hollywood disaster.

    Chicago Tribune

    Boring and banal, overwrought and undercooked, Hudson Hawk is beyond bad. [24 May 1991]

    Wall Street Journal Julie Salamon

    Despite all of its failures of wit, sense, and pace, the film does most effectively flaunt the millions spent on it. The inane action takes place in splendiferous settings. [23 May 1991]

    USA Today Susan Wloszczyna

    It ends up choking on a never-ending stream of inept gags... A worst-case scenario of wackiness gone out of whack. [24 May 1991]

    Time Richard Schickel

    But if you can see past the thicket of dollar signs surrounding Hudson Hawk, you may discern quite a funny movie -- sort of an "Indiana Jones" send-up with a hip undertone all its own. [10 June 1991]
