The movie is a total trifle, but it’s often a diverting one — a wide-eyed sci-fi adventure with a screwball buoyancy.

The result is neither funny nor thrilling, just exhausting.

Depressingly familiar and faux-engaging.

Reynolds and Scobell’s cracking performances and the film’s surprising emotional depth make it worth a look.

A high-concept but thin homage to light-hearted sci-fi romps of the past.

Noisy and formulaic, but still occasionally enjoyable.

Where some might single out the trashy heist caper Red Notice as the premium example this year of a star-powered, overpriced Netflix nothing, I’m looking straight down the barrel at The Adam Project.

The Adam Project isn’t especially smart, but it does leave you with a warm, fuzzy feeling.

(The Adam Project is) at best aggressively okay.

You’ll see it, possibly enjoy it, and then require your own future self to travel back, many years (or possibly even hours) from the future, and remind you that you’ve already watched it.

(The Adam Project) feels more like a collection of things than a functional narrative.
