Critic Reviews of "The People vs. Larry Flynt"Entertainment WeeklyJune 30, 2008
An exultant comedy of American repression and revolt.NewsweekJune 30, 2008
A brave, spectacularly entertaining -- and unexpectedly stirring -- account of Flynt's life that asks us to regard the publisher of Hustler magazine as an invaluable champion of our First Amendment freedoms.VarietyJune 30, 2008
One of the truly bizarre careers in recent American cultural life provides the source of tart and tasty amusement in The People vs. Larry Flynt.Chicago ReaderJune 30, 2008
Woody Harrelson plays Flynt with energy, and Courtney Love does at least as well as his wife.Washington PostJune 30, 2008
We're really celebrating Hollywood's freedom to create biographies of anyone, no matter how high or low on the social ladder, and still come up with the same banal characteristics, messages and conclusions.Time OutFebruary 09, 2006
The exploitative misogyny of Flynt's output is never examined, the prurient hypocrisy and intolerance of his persecutors seriously overplayed, plus Larry and Althea's odd romance lacks bittersweet conviction.TV GuideJune 30, 2008
Long after you've grown tired of his escapades, the scenes in which he and Althea support one another against the slings an arrows of outrageous fortune are touching and, ultimately, genuinely tragic.Combustible CelluloidMay 26, 2006
The movie is a lot of fun for long stretches.Film ThreatDecember 06, 2005
I sincerely hope The People Versus Larry Flynt goes all the way and wins the Academy Award.TheMovieReport.comSeptember 15, 2005

Great.Reeling ReviewsApril 09, 2005
