Year One Reviews: Drawing Unfortunate Land of the Lost Comparisons
06.18.09 by REELZ
The Bad News: Year One is drawing comparisons to Land of the Lost. (That might actually be considered really bad news.)
The Good News: If Year One is in fact a bomb, Michael Cera could be humbled enough to reconsider his A-lister attitude towards the Arrested Development movie.
"...a dreary experience..."
— Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"...has a handful of chuckles, but it's also harmless and scattershot, without much primitive bite."
— Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"...the script ... is strictly bargain basement, offering a plethora of poop, sex and fart jokes and vulgarity without a smidgen of wit."
— Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"...lacks seismic guffaws but elicits many mild smiles."
— Ronnie Scheib, Variety
