Consensus: A sodden, overly stylized mess that's even less compelling than a TV episode.

Bad trip. Bites. Whack. Whatever your era and whatever your slang, this new movie version of TV's The Mod Squad stinks.

Whatever countercultural kick the original Mod Squad had going for it, it has long since faded like a favorite pair of blue jeans, the kind you remember fondly but wouldn't dream of wearing again.

Not quite the hip, engaging thriller it was made out to be, this TV adaption begs the constant question of "Why?". Besides starring Giovanni Ribisi,… More
