About the Movie
Heath Ledger, Academy Award (R) nominee (Best Actor, Brokeback Mountain, 2005), stars in the scandalously funny adventure Casanova. After a lifetime of women falling head over heels in love with him, the world's legendary ladies' man (Ledger) meets the love of his life -- the one woman who thinks he's a total heel. Comic chaos ensues in a hilarious whirl of misadventures, disguises, and mistaken identities as the love-struck Casanova tries to win the heart of the fiery feminist who wants nothing to do with the man she thinks he is.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The great discovery of this Casanova is Hallstrom's recovered capacity for play.
Rotten: The whimsical plot, involving Casanova's seduction of a cross-dressing feminist, isn't helped by director Lasse Hallstrom's leaden hand.
Fresh: A handsome chunk of widescreen entertainment that's as nimble as its rakish hero.
Rotten: I admit that the picture is handsomely designed in gold and pale blue, but none of the tumult and pomp have any dramatic, comic, or erotic effect whatsoever.
doesn't deserve the extremes presented here
Everyone seems to be posting that this is the best or worst movie they've ever seen. Trust me, it's neither. The movie is light fluff romantic comedy that will hold your interest and make you laugh (sometimes with it, sometimes at it). It's also somewhat cheesy and overdone, has absolutely no historical accuracy (few period dramas do), and the ending is moronic. Overall, it's pretty middle-of-the-road Hollywood fare.
Ah, stop giving it bad reviews. It's good for a laugh. Actually many laughs. I watched it with my grandma and cousin, and we did not stop laughing through most of the movie. It's meant to be absurd, that's what many people seem to be missing. The absurdity of it all is the whole point. Give it a chance, won't you?
