      Drew Toal Time Out Rated: 2/5 Nov 18, 2011 Full Review Hank Sartin Time Out Rated: 2/5 Nov 17, 2011 Full Review William Thomas Empire Magazine It's not the worst film you'll see all year, but it's not going to wind up on anyone's honour roll, either. Rated: 2/5 Oct 13, 2007 Full Review Mike Massie Gone With The Twins It may be all in fun, but it's always difficult to take a subject as serious as bullying and give it the right balance of humorous discomfort and lesson-learning satisfaction. Rated: 6/10 Nov 27, 2020 Full Review Richard Propes TheIndependentCritic.com Tosses away a decent performance from Thornton and a winning, albeit one-note, performance from Sarandon. Rated: 2.5/4.0 Sep 17, 2020 Full Review Urban Cinefile Critics Urban Cinefile Mr Woodcock is ok as far as predictable, low-brow Hollywood comedies are concerned, and it's considerably elevated by its above average cast.
