Roger EbertFull Review Good "The Beach Bum" works by never losing its tonal statement that all that really matters is what matters to you...man. We've seen so many films that are angry about the state of the world in 2019. There's something inspired about one that reminds us "if that's all there is, then let's keep dancing."
USA TodayFull Review Average It isn't good and it isn't bad - it is, to borrow a fitting adjective, "all right." But the film might as well be called "Matthew McConaughey: The Movie," as it casts McConaughey in a role seemingly tailor-made for his famous style and yet, like the actor himself, also upends those same expectations.
NY PostFull Review Poor This is a movie by potheads for potheads. Thus, the plot is blazed and confused. What the flick has is a selfish louse of a main character, whom it insists we like. Moondog's the kind of guy you don't invite to a party because he might set your cat on fire, and then tell you to not freak out.
Slant MagazineFull Review Good There's a lot of fun to be had in the boys' club. A car crash, a cop chase, a blind airplane pilot, a shark attack—Moondog skirts the danger all around him with a laugh, as do his friends. Mostly, at least.

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
We were not able to collect enough reviews to display them normally, but the 6 reviews we collected were not great. In fact, four (plus my wife and I) did not like this movie at all. The other two rated it just "Good/Average," which indicates a decent movie, but nothing special or memorable.
