Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The film's problems lie with the lack of spark between a wired Dunst and a bland Bloom.
Rotten: Elizabethtown never quite feels like itself, whatever that self might be; it's as if another, subtly but significantly different movie were desperately trying to break through its skin.
Rotten: Elizabethtown [is] a tone-deaf, miscast and interminable romantic comedy from the usually beguiling Cameron Crowe.
Rotten: So curious, and such a disappointment.
Film Put To Music!
This film could almost be a silent film. The soundtrack is awesome and it tells most of the story. This is my second favorite Crowe film right behind "Say Anything". This movie is worth your time to watch. Both of the soundtracks are also worth your money.
a worthy addition to the cameron crowe body of work...
to be honest, before you go reading this, i love cameron crowe's movies. jerry maguire. almost famous. singles. even vanilla sky. this fits nicely in the lexicon of his work. it has themes that are common in his films, like redemption and eccentricity, searching for self and finding love, and they are handled as well here as they are in any movie i can remember. crowe has a visual language, as well as a musical one, and this movie uses both perfectly. if you're looking for a movie to reaffirm your faith in yourself, or just the crazy people that surround you, this movie is for you. it's a beautiful story. try it. you'll find something in it to love, too. **p.s. the soundtrack is an amazing accompaniment. you'll want it after seeing the movie.
weird and boring i love orlando and kirsten but not this movie
