Editors Note
Note Loosely adapted from a nonfiction book by Jon Ronson, Grant Heslov's directorial debut THE MEN WHO STARE AT GOATS begins as heartbroken reporter Bob Wilton (Ewan McGregor) heads off to imbed himself with troops as the Iraq War starts, but Wilton can't get himself into the country until he chances upon Lyn Cassady (George Clooney). It turns out Lyn spent decades as part of the New Earth Army -- a platoon of men, led by Bill Django (Jeff Bridges), who lived a new-age lifestyle in an attempt to cultivate extrasensory perception that would allow the U.S. army to win wars nonviolently. Bill now has a secret mission in Iraq, and allows Bob to come along. As the duo gets into a series of misadventures, Lyn shares with Bob the colorful history of the New Earth Army and chronicles the nefarious machinations of Larry Hooper (Kevin Spacey), whose jealousy of Lyn's remarkable skill brought an end to the group.
Box Office 4.5 stars out of 5 -- "[T]hough Ronson's book and Heslov's film are hilarious, they both recognize the power of truth, and that's something to take with us out of the multiplex." 09/11/2009
Total Film 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he script by Peter Straughan keeps the gags coming." 10/30/2009
A.V. Club "Clooney's sincere line deliveries and crack screwball timing never fail to amuse." -- Grade: B- 11/05/2009
Chicago Sun-Times 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "All of the actors play without winks and spins....The movie is funny." 11/04/2009
New York Times "[A] likable, lightweight, absurdist comedy....Mr. Clooney has shed his cool cat skin to embrace his inner clown." 11/06/2009
Los Angeles Times "[W]orth watching because it provides a showcase for a group of actors who really appreciate this kind of farcical comedy." 11/06/2009
USA Today "Based loosely on Jon Ronson's weirdly funny book of the same name, the film has some of the farcical appeal and subversive wit of DR. STRANGELOVE." 11/05/2009
Variety "It benefits from the dense but pacey screenplay by Brit playwright Peter Straughan..." 11/05/2009
Washington Post "Few cinematic pleasures are as sublime as George Clooney in full Clark Gable mode, as he is for much of the comedy THE MEN WHO STARE AT GOATS." 11/06/2009
Rolling Stone 3 stars out of 4 -- "Just go with the comic flow, wrapped in striking light and shadow by wizard cinematographer Robert Elswit." 11/12/2009
