Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Vibes is a harmless, painless romp but it's an instance of a sincere attempt at screwball comedy that simply got screwed up."
‑ Desmond Ryan, Philadelphia Inquirer
"The romantic suspense soon takes a back seat to some singularly unimpressive special effects."
‑ Dave Kehr, Chicago Tribune
"Nobody escapes unscathed from the gimmicky script co-authored by blockbuster comedy writers Lowell Ganz and Babaloo Mandel."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"For those looking for unintentional laughter in their movies, this one is for you. For those looking for a film to take seriously, beware."
‑ Jamie Gillies, Apollo Guide
"Vibes is a low-vibration romantic comedy about two incompatible psychics falling in love on an Ecuadorean treasure hunt, and everything in it seems nine or 10 beats off."
‑ Michael Wilmington, Los Angeles Times
"Vibes has all the ingredients of lighthearted adventure-comedy except the essential one: laughs."
‑ Janet Maslin, New York Times
"If there were an Academy Award for Most Instantly Forgettable Film, the odds-on early favorite would be Vibes."
‑ Ben Yagoda, Philadelphia Daily News
"Even the non-discriminating 'tween' would have problems liking this one."
‑ Alex Sandell, Juicy Cerebellum
"Luckily, Vibes has those quirky stars, a wacky threesome who give off good vibes under any circumstances."
‑ Jay Boyar, Orlando Sentinel
"The miscast and downright miserable company attempts zaniness against the exotic South American backdrop."
‑ Rita Kempley, Washington Post
"Move over Madonna; you'd do well to take some acting lessons from fellow- rocker and screen newcomer, Cyndi Lauper."
‑ Roger Hurlburt, South Florida Sun-Sentinel
"Who sanctioned this?"
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
