New York Times:Read more

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
