Consensus: Hollywood Homicide suffers from too many subplots and not enough laughs.

Andrew Sarris
New York Observer

The trouble is that Mr. Shelton and Mr. Souza don't do enough with the material to make it dramatically compelling.

This is going to go down as one of the lesser films in the portfolios of Shelton, Ford, and most everyone else involved.
