Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Seems to have been made without a writer."
‑ J. Hoberman, Village Voice
"There's something weird, and it don't look good."
‑ Melanie McFarland, Seattle Times
"...an ideal example of how to do a summer movie right..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Paying homage to his previous and better work, Reitman's new comedy is marked by one-idea story, sporadic humor that lacks wit, and cheesy special effects."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"It's like Ghostbusters -- but with aliens! And guns! And no script!"
‑ James Rocchi, Netflix
"Has more rear-end gags than a toga party at a proctology convention."
‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"Flat, rickety and enervated."
‑ Edward Guthmann, San Francisco Chronicle
"Uneven, unfocused with some inspired silliness."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"EVOLUTION is like a chemistry set experiment that could have gone horribly awry, but turns out just right . . . Duchovny and Jones have great buddy movie chemistry"
‑ Brian Mckay, eFilmCritic.com
"This is one dumb sci-fi comedy that doesn't work in either genre."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"I laughed -- but mostly to keep from getting depressed about the devolution of mainstream movies."
‑ David Edelstein, Slate
"perhaps a creative film distributor could employ a brain surgeon who can perform temporary lobotomies in order to endure films like this"
‑ John A. Nesbit, Old School Reviews
"Part of the problem with Evolution -- aside from the fact that it isn't really very funny -- is that it's mostly jaded; there's very little gee-whiz, almost no awe."
‑ Rob Gonsalves, eFilmCritic.com
"Funny, but predictable and dumb."
‑ Wesley Lovell, Cinema Sight
"Duchovny and Jones play off each other with excellent comic timing."
‑ Betty Jo Tucker, ReelTalk Movie Reviews
