Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"What little narrative or characterization shows up on screen could barely fill an abridged short story."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"While this may sound simplistic, there's more to the film than simple American Heist and Chase thriller, of the Dukes of Hazzard style."
‑ J.C. Maçek III, PopMatters
"A worthy car film for the hot rod era..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Film Threat
"The script, about small-timers who wished they were bigger, is soon totally undermined by Fonda's most complacent performance to date and Susan George's sub-Goldie Hawn antics."
‑ , Time Out
"Dirty Mary Crazy Larry is a classic heist chase picture driven by a somewhat dated premise and paper-thin characters."
‑ R. L. Shaffer, IGN DVD
"An iconic outlaw classic of seventies speed cinema..."
‑ Sean Axmaker, St@tic Multimedia
"The film is so bereft of emotion and so full of physical movement that it's possible this is a point that John Hough, the director, and the screenwriters wanted to make. It's a very small point to be made by such a noisy picture."
‑ Vincent Canby, New York Times
"There is practically no plot, and even less character development, but the script is based on a novel, most likely a thin one."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"nothing new to anybody who's caught five minutes of an episode of The Dukes of Hazzard."
‑ Mark Athitakis, Filmcritic.com
