Fresh: Very entertaining film based on a true story. Well worth stealing!
- Alex Sandell, Juicy Cerebellum, Thursday, June 24, 2010
Rotten: A committed cast but an awkward script and no budget for production niceties.
- Bob Graham, San Francisco Chronicle, Saturday, January 1, 2000
Rotten: Bruce Graham's screenplay ... reduces any of the issues involved to slogans like, 'The personal is political.'
- Charles Taylor, Salon.com, Saturday, January 1, 2000
D'onofrio is absolutely fantastic in this role (he is in most). A movie that gets better every time you watch it.

trully a fabulous film. a warrior for justice and peace filled with the love of his country, but attacked by the same he loves. america was against him and he still made a difference! hippys are kool and all but this movie takes the scene to a whole nother level, political activists. best activist movie ever!

Good movie based on the life of Abbie Hoffman. Most of it is told in flashbacks. A journalist is writing a piece on Abbie Hoffman, and through interviews with him, his wife, friends and lawyers we see what happened to make Abbie go "underground"...which is where he is at the beginning of the film. This covers the time from his first arrest, to his coming out of the underground. Vincent D'Onofrio does a great job as the man himself, and Janeane Garofalo is wonderful as his wife Anita.
