One can't help but read the film-which was dropped by its studio, and is now available digitally-as an expression of everything Carnahan hates about the movie business.

Stretch thinks it's so damn clever, and is totally self-satisfied with its over-written dialogue.

We Got This Covered

Stretch is a bold, bonkers and completely brilliant blast of creative energy from Joe Carnahan at his most gleefully unrestrained.

Movie Talk

Stretch gets off to such a hectic, abrasive start that many viewers will wish to jump out immediately. Stick with [Patrick Wilson's frazzled chauffeur], though, and his surreal escapades turn out to be surprisingly entertaining.

Stretch offers more narration than a Morgan Freeman film festival, one of several pot holes it jumps over without a ramp.

Brian Orndorf

Incredible amounts of fun, with a ferocious sense of humor and attention to pace and character connection that maintains a smooth, silly viewing experience with the occasional acid splash to identify it as a Carnahan picture.

Stretch feels like the dots joined from what was left on Carnaghan's drawing board.

The Dissolve

The film is an obnoxious cartoon version of Hollywood noir, but Carnahan has the chops to keep it moving quickly.

"Stretch" is a truly enjoyable oddity, a movie that was too brash, too weird, too idiosyncratic for a major release, but one that should settle into a nice, long shelf life. "Stretch" is a wild ride, and one very much worth going on.

Can't get enough of these kinds of movies that involve one lead character pressed for time on a mission. It is a roller coaster ride through and through.… More
