      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Feeble writing and two-dimensional characters make Special Correspondents an unsuccessful, embarrassing endeavor for creator Ricky Gervais.

      Brad Newsome Sydney Morning Herald Ricky Gervais and Eric Bana are decent fun in this pleasant but not overly memorable little flick. Mar 30, 2018 Full Review David Jenkins Little White Lies Dubious, unfunny, protracted wish-fulfilment. Quite, quite awful. Rated: 1/5 Apr 30, 2016 Full Review Robert Lloyd Los Angeles Times If it's actually disappointing, rather than merely just OK, it's that one (still) expects more from the co-creator of The Office. Apr 29, 2016 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review What could have been a witty comedic satire ends up not even being worthy of a lazy viewing. Rated: 1.5/4 Apr 15, 2022 Full Review Jason Adams The Film Experience Gervais' most maudlin instincts are stamped all over this thing, with little of the bite that rankles his detractors while pleasing his fans Jul 6, 2021 Full Review Stephen O'Nion One Room With A View A nonsensical, unbelieveable story is matched only by its crayon-sketched characters before wandering to an end both welcome and rushed. Rated: 1/5 Apr 3, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews

      Roy S Absolute horror of a horror show. Ricky?? Where was your head to produce such a crock of poop??? Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/07/24 Full Review Bruce R I read the reviews before this movie and would like to see how some of these hacks could even construct 10% of this score. Light hearted, don't delve, if your a Ricky G. fan on any level you will enjoy Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/02/24 Full Review Jason A It's a pretty cute movie with some genuine laughs. I enjoyed it. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 12/30/23 Full Review mary m Very funny. Good story. Good cast. Enjoyable light entertainment. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 10/15/23 Full Review Jacob M First twenty minutes were unbelievably boring. Hard to believe that Gervais is involved in this given his usual comedic genius. The characters are all horrible, unlikeable losers. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 09/18/23 Full Review Miriam H I really loved this film. so clever, great plot, and great character actors. I would definitely recommend it. It has great pace, fabulous low key humour, just so entertaining. Flawless is the most apt description. Fair play to Ricky, not only writing and directing it but also playing one of the lead roles. The casting director did a great job in picking a great selection of wonderful actors who all worked so well together. Definitely an Oscar winning film.
