Critic Reviews for Opportunity Knocks

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (2)

[Carvey is] an accomplished actor who can sell a real character. I wish the screenplay had developed that side a little more, and gone easier on the standard crime stuff.

Ai-yai-yai! Carvey's a really blank lead -- the brief Bush impersonation is all that's funny.
