The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

By Liam Lacey
Filled with a sweet, loopy sensibility and some fresh comic turns, Welcome to Collinwood is a low-budget American film that falls into the good-but-slight category.

Boston Globe

By Wesley Morris
At some point we're flashed a junkyard billboard telling us that Collinwood is the ''Beirut of Cleveland'' - yes, but here, it's by way of Looney Tunes.

Christian Science Monitor

By David Sterritt
The farce is energetically written, breezily acted, and never quite as dumb as the lunkheads it's about.

Baltimore Sun

By Chris Kaltenbach
Clearly a spiritual descendant of the old Looney Toons cartoons; it's not hard to imagine Daffy, Bugs, Porky and their pals in the starring roles here. And that's a cinematic pedigree worth cherishing.

New York Daily News

By Jack Mathews
It takes us about half the film to adjust to its quirkiness, and we leave the theater with both laughter cramps and the feeling that it should have been funnier a lot longer.

New York Post

Doesn't have the polish of "Ocean's Eleven" - but it does have George Clooney.

Chicago Tribune

By Mark Caro
Even at a mere 82 minutes, the movie is guilty of killing time. It's not a complete Kaputschnik, but it's sure no Bellini.

Chicago Sun-Times

By Roger Ebert
A wacky and eccentric heist comedy with many virtues, but it is also a remake of "Big Deal on Madonna Street" (1958), a movie much beloved by me. Some scenes are so close to the original it's kind of uncanny.

Philadelphia Inquirer

By Steven Rea
Funny and not-funny, slapstick and slapdash, Welcome to Collinwood is a seriously uneven caper comedy in which a bunch of really fine character actors get to act really, really silly.

Entertainment Weekly

By Lisa Schwarzbaum
Excitement trumps incompetence as one colorful loser recruits another. Pretty soon, the screen is filled with hip actors playing clueless lowlifes, pretending they're in a Bizarro World production of ''Ocean's Eleven.''
