Lou Lumenick New York Post A sub-Apatovian farce that tries way too hard ... Rated: 1.5/4 Oct 12, 2012 Full Review Robert Abele Los Angeles Times A noisy stab at wacky wrongness that starts with reasonably plump possibility as a dispatch from the frontlines of viral video embarrassment hell. Rated: 2/5 Oct 11, 2012 Full Review Jeannette Catsoulis New York Times A vibrantly vulgar comedy that never hangs around to admire its own cleverness. Rated: 5/5 Oct 11, 2012 Full Review Ed Travis Hollywood Jesus Frankie Go Boom does have a lot of moments of shocking raunch. But every moment like that is coupled with a genuinely human interaction... Mar 31, 2020 Full Review Debbie Lynn Elias Behind The Lens With absurd wackiness abounding, and as Ron Perlman opines, "The funniest script I've read in at least 25 years", 3, 2, 1. . .Frankie Go Boom is madcap zaniness at its best.

Yuri B I...... I...... Ron Perlman was in...... in...... I can never unsee that now. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Frankie goes boom is in its core a romantic comedy and unfortunately the movie is more dumb than funny. The cast is OK and it tries to be like Zach and Mimi made a porno but it’s not near as funny. The movie does have a few chuckles and watching Ron Perlman in drag is over the top but there’s nothing here that memorable. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 05/06/20 Full Review Audience Member I... I... Ron Perlman was in... in... I can never unsee that now. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member I enjoyed this movie just for Ron Perlman. It is a very strange movie but quite enjoyable I found. Good chemistry with Hunnam and Perlman. I would watch it again. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Real bad. Not even funny. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member I saw this at the Milwaukee Film Festival one or two years ago and got major laughs. Crude, not for everybody but Ron Perlman was amazing and I even enjoyed Chris Noth! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Read all reviews
