Critic Reviews for The Blue Iguana

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (1)

The Blue Iguana is as close to a no-brainer as you can get, and still have anything left on the screen at all. It's a smart-aleck parody of private-eye movies, but it knows as little about private eyes as it does about parodies, and movies.

An unusually irritating misfire...

November 6, 2008 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

It's little more than an interesting failure, a not-so-clever execution of a clever idea.

May 22, 2006 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

After a full hour of Iguana I was watching the DVD counter tick by in slow motion.
