Consensus: Conceptually audacious but only intermittently successful in execution, Escape From Tomorrow is nonetheless visually inventive and darkly surreal.

Definitely a great stunt, but you spend the film thinking how much more the "Jackass"/"Bad Grandpa" crew could have done with a premise like this.

It's really just a middling fantasy about a middle-aged dad having a meltdown during a family vacation to the Magic Kingdom, with a few scattered sci-fi and horror elements thrown in.

An incredible feat of satirical culture-jamming and gonzo movie-making, Escape from Tomorrow, for better or worse, won't be forgotten by those who agree to buy the ticket and take the ride

It feels much like a theme park itself -- really exciting at first, but then your senses are dulled, and eventually you just want to go.

The effects-heavy movie flies off into exotic yet inconsequential science-fiction visions; Moore's view of the macabre in the banal is a tepid successor to David Lynch's.

Anyone with a filmmaking background should watch the movie to see what real guerrilla filmmaking can accomplish.

Suggests an R-rated Twilight Zone episode with a twist of Fellini-lite, in a trite film school kind of way.

Whatever the technical intrigue of a film shot guerilla-style at Disney World, the would-be surreal midlife crisis that ended up onscreen doesn't work... at all.

It's almost like The Shining, but instead of a hotel, is Disneyland. A truly audacious and provocative film (maybe the first film to do so in a such… More

'Escape From Tomorrow'. An overtly sexualised mid-life crisis through the mind of a bored man. Admire how it was filmed. The result, /shrug

Escape From Tomorrow built a wave of buzz coming out of the Sundance Film Festival, namely because it was a bizarre, psycho-sexual little indie film shot… More
