      william k Another early De Palma satire this time around has a more focused narrative with Robert De Niro as its main protagonist, better, if not always good humor and some imaginative sequences. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Eitan D really bad movie, bad cinematography & and the idea sucks Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 04/18/21 Full Review jim b Pathetic excuse for a movie, if you're looking for a good De Niro movie or good De Palma one you won't get it here, Jennifer Salt is wasted too, this movie attempts to have both comedy (in the first half or less), with De Niro as a peeping tom trying to make porn from his window across from Salt's character, and then it switches into this thing about the Black Panther movement, and the two parts don't work at ALL. This *STINKS*!!!!! One of the five worst movies I've ever seen. Pure garbage. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Funny, absurd, and unorthodox. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Audience Member Some good stuff in it, but too all over the place. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Audience Member De Niro was oke funny , but was this a movie , more a documentary....soon forgotten by me .

      Richard Brody New Yorker De Palma offers a self-conscious time capsule of downtown sights and moods, especially in his rambunctious, hilarious, yet nonetheless disturbing parodies of public television. May 30, 2016 Full Review Eric Henderson Slant Magazine The most Hitchcockian riff that De Palma ever examined is the capacity for the human psyche to harbor intense, complicated divergence. Rated: 4/4 Jun 11, 2004 Full Review David Nusair Reel Film Reviews Hi, Mom! suffers from an almost painfully meandering and off-the-wall vibe that grows more and more infuriating as time slowly progresses. Rated: 1/4 May 3, 2016 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews Now considered valued mostly as a relic. Rated: B- May 31, 2011 Full Review Fernando F. Croce CinePassion Brian De Palma's joke, in its manifold aspects, roasts the counterculture's navet regarding cinema as "truth 24 frames per second" Feb 12, 2010 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Sort of a sequel to De Palma's Greetings: De Niro plays a Vietnam vet who attempts to pursue a "Peeping Tom" art career with a new kind of porn film. Rated: C+ Dec 5, 2006 Full Review Read all reviews
