Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: What was intended as a tart elegy for a vanished way of life becomes a valedictory to a certain kind of filmmaking: beautifully appointed, intelligently played, and civilized into inertia. – Ty Burr, Boston Globe, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: A movie that feels as if it should have been a masterpiece. As it is, it's flawed, uneven work but deserves careful viewing. – Tirdad Derakhshani, Philadelphia Inquirer, Jun 25, 2010

Rotten: Slow, dull and wielding absolutely no emotional impact despite a fine cast. – Tom Long, Detroit News, Aug 13, 2010

Rotten: It's a fine cast, but this is an example for me of actors being really pulled down by the material. – A.O. Scott, At the Movies, Jun 24, 2010

What the F$&@ were the critics watching

I'm a film fanatic and I loved every minute of this movie. What I consider every bit as monumental as this movies effect on me was the blinding scathing and curiously scathing reviews. The effect of being lost in what the reviewers wrote as it pertains to this lush escapists paradise gave me more than pause, it drew back the curtain. The illusion of the importance reviews from the heavyweights such as The New York Times is now and forever as much a guide for me as fat bloated useless toad.


A wonderful film with a great script. Some movies trap you by the storyline without the need for anything else. The musical soundtrack in this one provides a bonus.

Awesome movie

It's a really nice movie
