"'I Am Nobody' touches on some of the most important issues facing us, burying them in a blaze of self-regarding silliness. It the most unfortunate thing I have seen in some time."

"Something of a road movie…plenty of humor…some well-sung songs…not much of a plot, although it does have a few surprises…The biggest surprise might be to those expecting, underneath the Kotis characteristic wackiness, his usual sharp satire and spot-on parody."
