Frequently hilarious, often profound, and occasionally stupid.
Los Angeles Times
A raucous, profane but surprisingly endearing piece of work.
The New York Times
Smith makes a big, gutsy leap into questions of faith and religion. He miraculously emerges with his humor intact and his wings unsinged.
Smith has crammed the film with enough genuinely funny moments and insightful bits to make it well worth seeing.
As funny as a lot of the film is, Dogma remains as frustratingly uneven as the rest of Smith's work.
Smith's strongest suit is writing dialogue that slips smart insights in between pop-culture references and raunchy language.
It does commit a cardinal sin of filmmaking. It's boring.
New York Post
Kevin Smith's attempt to combine sketchy low comedy with long-winded theological speculation results in a mostly unfunny and occasionally tedious mess.
Christian Science Monitor
Wildly irreverent fantasy.
(Smith) seems out of his depth in this talky, rambling religious satire.
