Consensus: An confusing movie made worse by the poor camera work.

Peter Rainer
New York Magazine/Vulture

Soderbergh is so busy trying to create his movie-within-a-movie -- and, in at least one instance, his movie-within- a-movie-within -a-movie -- that he botches the enclosing movie.

Mr. Soderbergh's direction and visual style struck me as unusually and unimpressively fussy and pretentious.

Some vivid moments, but overall, just so-so.

The best you can say about Full Frontal, an ensemble piece that flirts with ideas about illusion and reality, is that the movie qualifies as a failed experiment.

Ebert & Roeper

Full Frontal is like the 'Special Features' disc of the DVD without the original movie.

Tim Brayton
Antagony & Ecstasy

The most dense, fascinating collage of notions and meta-narrative references and formal tinkering in Soderbergh's whole career.

When improv is done well, it sheds a unique light on the human condition. When it is done adequately, as it is in Full Frontal, it simply makes you long for a good script and pricey production values.

Rob Gonsalves

It's a doodle movie, a sketchbook. I was held by the tinkering quality of it, though.

I'll never understand the universal hate of Full Frontal; it's a good movie.
Joey Nevarez
Ugh...so annoying/boring. I was more entertained by the special features. Btw, the cast credits are misleading....David Duchovony only has one scene.

If you're in the mood for random weirdness look no further.
Sunil Jawahir
Just weird and not good. I didn't understand the point so maybe years from now I could try again and love it.
