O que se diz lá fora sobre THE MEN WHO STARE AT GOATS, de Grant Heslov:
«It actually doesn't matter if the book is truthful. It doesn't claim the paranormal powers are real. Ronson simply says some officials thought they might be -- and that if they were, we had to get there first. The movie is funny either way.»
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times.
«It’s wacky, amusing. But that’s about it. If there are truths to be drawn from the military’s use of men to locate hostages psychically, they’re not evident here.»
Manohla Dargis, New York Times.
«A serendipitous marriage of talent in which all hearts seem to beat as one.»
Derek Elley, Variety.
«THE MEN WHO STARE AT GOATS is a magical-realist sitcom war farce that ends up being about nothing but its own slovenly smugness.»
Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly.
«There's no doubt we need more movies for grown-ups, with jokes that don't hit us over the head, but THE MEN WHO STARE AT GOATS doesn't fit the bill. At best, it might hypnotize you into a stupor.»
