Rating: 3.5/4 -- Wise Guys is broad and farcical, but there's not a moment when Moe and Harry stop being lovable, or even believable. Full Review
Chicago Sun-Times

Rating: 2/5 -- It's tempting to dismiss "Wise Guys" as a pointless, ill-advised forebear to "Dumb and Dumber." But even if only for an act, you sense De Palma striving for more artful zaniness a la the Marx Brothers or a grimmer side of the Ealing Comedy spectrum. Full Review

Rating: 2.5/4 -- A mid-career faux pas, or the director's equivalent of the coruscating, laugh-stuck-in-your-throat dissonance of The King of Comedy? Full Review
Slant Magazine
Sep 1, 2006
Rating: 1/5 -- Brian DePalma, who made some funny movies years ago, seems to have lost his touch.

Rating: 2/5 -- A lame Mob comedy, proving Piscopo is not movie material
