Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"You may not want to hang around [Hunter S. Thompson] all the time, but he would be a pretty interesting guy to have over for breakfast."
‑ Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone,
"One should take heart that there are no talking head interviews as there usually are in such documentaries."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Curiously prosaic for the wicked incisiveness of its subject."
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"...wildly entertaining..."

"Ever wish you could see what goes on behind those famed, heavily fortified walls of Owl Farm? Here's your invitation."

"Do we get to know the real Hunter through viewing Breakfast with Hunter? Possibly. More than ever before, at least."
‑ Christopher Null,
"Takes a peculiarly predictable and conventional approach to its study of the godfather of gonzo journalism, Hunter S. Thompson"
‑ Dan Jardine, Cinemania
