“..where it most disappoints is how it starts with good, raw materials, and miraculously turns itself into empty calories..”
by Todd Gilchrist [Boxoffice Magazine]
“..too late to the Ponzi-scheme party to be topical, and not outrageous enough to take advantage of its own setups..”
by Neil Genzlinger [NY Times]
“..this effort - veering wildly from broad comedy to sensitive drama - feels even more ungainly than most..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]
“..predictable race-based jokes, many of which have the saving grace of actually being funny..”
by Joe Leydon [Variety]
1.5 of 4

“..is less a movie than it is an exercise in product branding..”
by Peter Howell [Toronto Star]
“..for anyone entering the filmmaker's comedic world for the first time, "Witness Protection" would make a terrible introduction..”

THE SCRIBBLER :

by Gary Goldstein [LA Times]

HECTOR AND THE SEARCH FOR HAPPINESS :

by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]

DR. CABBIE :
