Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Smart characters don't always mean smart movies, and The Genius Club is no exception."
‑ Justin Chang, Variety
"A laughable mess of pretentious rambling and spiritual shallowness... gloriously, stupendously, exceptionally awful."
‑ David Cornelius,
"A pretentious gabfest...When one of the characters opines toward the close, 'This has been a complete waste of time,' you'll be hard pressed not to nod in agreement."
‑ Frank Swietek, One Guy's Opinion
"Most of the movie is surprisingly effective at feeding the audience a liberal critique of capitalism, cleverly disguised as a thriller."
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, L.A. Weekly
"...plagued by uneven writing and acting ... but The Genius Club isn't a proselytizing tract or a preachment to the choir. It's an honest to gosh real movie."
‑ Philip Martin, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
"The Genius Club is a stultifying, static movie about a group of people trapped in a dingy boardroom yelling at one another and their tormentor."
‑ Tom Maurstad, Dallas Morning News
"a low-budget wannabe thriller that's anything but smart."
‑ Norm Schrager,
