While staying at a cabin in the woods, telepathic friends (Thomas Jane, Jason Lee) confront aliens that are being hunted by the military.
" A likable disaster. "
" If Dreamcatcher ultimately feels like an unwieldy pastiche, at least it's never boring. "
" One of the more consistently entertaining Stephen King adaptations. "
" King deserves better. "
" ... not since Death to Smoochy have so many talented people made such a mess of things. "
" It's the craziest thing you ever saw. "
" If hopeless literalist Kasdan could have decided on a tone ... this could have been a gynophobe's Independence Day. "
" A head-scratchingly silly B-movie, blending boyish sentiment and cheesy creature effects, that even Morgan Freeman can't save. "
" Stupid, sophomoric and moronically silly, it leaves you with the feeling that you might welcome shock treatment just to get your brain back. "
" A bloated mess that makes mush out of King's novel. "
" Dreamcatcher isn't worth the time, money, or effort. "
" While the movie is fairly unpleasant it's also, finally, so ludicrous that you begin to wonder if it isn't all a big put-on. "
" Dreamcatcher is a spectacular mistake, a five-star screw-up that -- notwithstanding sheer grossness, plot meanderings, inconsistency and illogic -- has given me more fun than almost any other movie this year. "
" King is dreamily free-associating, which doesn't mean he's plumbing his unconscious in search of new nightmare archetypes; it means he's recycling bits of old horror and sci-fi flicks and even setups from his own novels. "
" Easily one of the most absurdly over-plotted and incoherently condensed horror movies of recent times. "
" A bumpy thrill ride. "
" Flamboyant and, at times, extremely repulsive. "
