Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: A Good Year, an innocuous, feel-good movie that reunites Russell Crowe with the director Ridley Scott, is a three-P movie: pleasant, pretty and predictable. One might add piddling.
Rotten: Russell Crowe has many talents, but a gift for light comedy is not one of them.
Rotten: Despite some stunning visuals and a lot of nice moments, the finished product feels like the work of an actor and director who are out of their element.
Rotten: Like a fragile Provence wine left too long in the sun, Ridley Scott's romantic comedy A Good Year spoiled somewhere between the publication of Peter Mayle's novel and this cockamamie adaptation.
I'm sure this is annoying... I just want Gladiator. PLEASE!!!!!
A brilliant movie.
I love this movie. I"ve watched it at least 4 times in the past 3 years. Russel Crowe only chooses movies that are worthwhile. The transformation of such a brilliant character as Crowe's is lovely to watch. It feels as though one is allowed a look at the most intimate moments of the character's life.
G R E A T MOVIE!
Great movie that even an action junky like me liked! Crowe does a brilliant job and his lovely French co-star... Va Va VA VOOM!!!!
