April 3, 2019
A nonsensical, unbelieveable story is matched only by its crayon-sketched characters before wandering to an end both welcome and rushed.

I would recommend it for people looking for a decent comedy, but I'd warn them to be prepared for some unexpected ugliness.

Gervais wraps ingenious skits and initially wry conceits (natural by-products of his talents as stand-up comedian and sitcom specialist) in utterly rote industrial tropes.

Ricky Gervais and Eric Bana are decent fun in this pleasant but not overly memorable little flick.
May 17, 2016
Lots of profanity, drugs in so-so satire.

Gervais has missed the mark again with Special Correspondents, a lacklustre comedy that's big on absurdity but surprisingly low on laughs.

A wasted opportunity. [Full review in Spanish]

Special Correspondents is like a mish-mash of some great ideas that go absolutely nowhere.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
May 4, 2016
This work is mildly satirical. The difference here is that the bite is so mild that this barely works as a satire.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

If Special Correspondents has one prominent problem - aside from running out of gas before the finish line - it is that no one player in the cast is prepared to step up and dominate when needed.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
May 2, 2016
Special Correspondents is a flimsy, irrelevant, unfunny 'satirical comedy' which adds up to nothing much at all.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/10

Gervais once again proves that movies are not his strong point. [Full review in Spanish]

Special Correspondents is so devoid of more meaningful commentary that it's practically headless.

Did not believe one second of it. Ricky's worst movie, by far. And his laziest.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
April 30, 2016
Dubious, unfunny, protracted wish-fulfilment. Quite, quite awful.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

With Special Correspondents, Ricky Gervais proudly strides into the Adam Sandler phase of his career.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
April 29, 2016
Special Correspondents doesn't stem the tide of mediocrity from Ricky Gervais. In fact, it's probably his worst creation to date.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
April 29, 2016
The entire production seems like a half-hour comedy special that got stretched out to feature-length.
April 29, 2016
If it's actually disappointing, rather than merely just OK, it's that one (still) expects more from the co-creator of The Office.
April 29, 2016
Special Correspondents keeps coming up with big ideas, then taking them to undersized ends.
