Critic Reviews for Checking Out

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

The problem with Checking Out is that it provides us with fears we can understand and responses that seem to have been phoned in from a sitcom.

January 1, 2000 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

An absolutely interminable piece of work...

June 3, 2010 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

Too broad, ultimately botched, but constantly watchable.

July 8, 2004 | Rating: 3/5
