Glenn Lovell, San Jose Mercury News: This one aims for the toilet and scores a direct hit. Read more

Janice Page, Boston Globe: There are cheesy backdrops, ridiculous action sequences, and many tired jokes about men in heels. Read more

Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times: It all feels like a Monty Python sketch gone horribly wrong. Read more

Loren King, Chicago Tribune: It seems just a long, convoluted ploy to get men into drag -- period drag, no less. Read more

Elvis Mitchell, New York Times: Jaw-droppingly superficial, straining to get by on humor that is not even as daring as John Ritter's glory days on Three's Company. Read more

Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly: The comedy is nonexistent. Read more

Hazel-Dawn Dumpert, L.A. Weekly: Bad in such a bizarre way that it's almost worth seeing, if only to witness the crazy confluence of purpose and taste. Read more

Gene Seymour, Newsday: Let's hope -- shall we? -- that the 'true story' by which All the Queen's Men is allegedly "inspired" was a lot funnier and more deftly enacted than what's been cobbled together onscreen. Read more

Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times: I can imagine this movie as a b&w British comedy, circa 1960, with Peter Sellers, Kenneth Williams, et al., but at this time, with this cast, this movie is hopeless. Read more

Edward Guthmann, San Francisco Chronicle: What we have here isn't a disaster, exactly, but a very handsomely produced let-down. Read more

Dennis Harvey, Variety: Not bad enough to qualify as a memorable dud, multinational production nonetheless misses mark on every level. Read more

Michael Atkinson, Village Voice: A graceless, witless attempt at mating Some Like It Hot with the WWII espionage thriller. Read more
