Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"... tedious and ill-made claptrap it makes staring at your hands seem like four-star entertainment by comparison."
‑ Amy Biancolli, Houston Chronicle
"The movie is flatly acted and extremely ill-paced, lacking any sense of urgency, momentum or fun."
‑ Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times
"James Redfield's best seller hits the big screen with a dull thud."
‑ Jonathan Kiefer, Sacramento News & Review
"One would think that since the book sold 14 million copies, Hollywood would have bought the film rights waay back then , but they didn't I can now see why."
‑ Eric Lurio, Greenwich Village Gazette
"So clumsily made on every level -- acting, dialogue, decor, lighting, editing, scoring -- that it would never have found its way into theaters if there weren't the name of a best-seller to slap on it."
‑ Shawn Levy, Oregonian
"[The film is] arguably as effective as Ambien at inducing sleep, but possible side effects include uncontrollable laughter."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"The Celestine Prophecy Movie never transcends either the look or the feel of a cult recruitment film crossed with a Christian-network infomercial."
‑ Ernest Hardy, L.A. Weekly
"Just about the best thing that can be said for this spiritual potboiler is that it is not much worse than The Da Vinci Code."
‑ Anton Bitel, Eye for Film
"Armand Mastroianni brings James Redfield's huge bestseller to the screen with all the care it deserves ... which is none."
‑ Andy Klein, Los Angeles CityBeat
"A thrill-less thriller."
‑ Jeff Vice, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
"A delectable fusion of New Age babble and luridly bad filmmaking based on the best-selling 1993 book by James Redfield."
‑ Manohla Dargis, New York Times
"Believer and skeptic alike can agree on one thing: It is a transcendentally awful movie."
‑ Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"This is just dogma delivered in the blunt tones of an old classroom hygiene film."
‑ Frank Lovece, Film Journal International
"If "The Da Vinci Code" were based on New Age theories similar to those in "What the Bleep Do We Know?" -- and if it were terrible -- the result would be "The Celestine Prophecy Movie.""
‑ Rob Thomas, Capital Times (Madison, WI)
"Based on the best-selling self-help book, the movie shares the book's chief flaw, which is that it's so awkwardly put together that it's hard to concentrate on the interesting ideas it may contain."
‑ Chris Hewitt (St. Paul), St. Paul Pioneer Press
