Rachel Saltz, New York Times: "Flypaper" has enough twists and surprises to remain interesting in a closed-room, Agatha Christie kind of way. But it's never quite as clever or as hip as it thinks it is. Read more

David Fear, Time Out: You'll be the one who ends up feeling ripped off. Read more

Scott Tobias, AV Club: The sprawling ensemble yields to a story that's so heavily worked-over, it doesn't get much of a chance to breathe. Read more

Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor: One thought that occurred to me while pacing myself through Flypaper: With the economy being what it is, will there be a rash of bank robbery movies? Read more

Justin Lowe, Hollywood Reporter: Although tempting enough to initially attract audiences, this caper comedy may have trouble getting them to stick around, despite a starry cast. Read more

Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News: It's a mess from start to finish, but there's still fun to be had in Rob Minkoff's caper comedy. Read more

Sara Stewart, New York Post: In the end, there's just a roomful of decent character actors in search of a point. For them, the titular "Flypaper" may have simply been a paycheck. Read more

Una LaMarche, New York Observer: You know there's something wrong with a comedy when you'd rather see the main characters killed off than live happily ever after. Read more

Leah Rozen, TheWrap: A mighty thin and derivative slice of moviemaking. Read more

Dennis Harvey, Variety: Slick but instantly forgettable. Read more

Aaron Hillis, Village Voice: The ensemble's amped-up histrionics rub against each other without ever catching fire. Read more
