    Entertainment Weekly Lisa Schwarzbaum

    To a character, every man in this faux-homey burg has been castrated! They're all impotent buffoons!

    Wall Street Journal Joe Morgenstern

    No one comes out of Mooseport unscathed -- not Rip Torn, as the president's campaign manager, not Christine Baranski as his avaricious ex-wife. It's a democracy of mediocrity, or worse.

    The Hollywood Reporter Sheri Linden

    Compounding the sense of predictability and deja vu is the presence of well-known TV actors portraying the sorts of characters they've perfected on the small screen.

    USA Today Mike Clark

    David Mamet handled such small-town whimsy better in 2000's "State and Main." Hackman could play his role in his sleep, but Romano IS asleep. Result: Welcome to Mildport, and that's being kind.

    Chicago Sun-Times Roger Ebert

    Hackman could charm the chrome off a trailer hitch. Romano is more of the earnest, aw-shucks, sincere, well-meaning kind of guy whose charm is inner and only peeks out occasionally. They work well together here.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this movie has some crude humor and non-sexual nudity (rear view of a nude male jogger). Characters drink in response to stress and get tipsy and there is a marijuana joke. Characters use brief strong language and there is some comic violence.

  • Families can talk about their own elected officials and whether they would ever like to run for office.
