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. – Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly, Sep 7, 2011

Rotten: The whimsical plot, involving Casanova's seduction of a cross-dressing feminist, isn't helped by director Lasse Hallstrom's leaden hand. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Nov 24, 2006

Fresh: A handsome chunk of widescreen entertainment that's as nimble as its rakish hero. – Derek Elley, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

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. – David Denby, New Yorker, Jan 3, 2006

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?

one of my favorite movies

i absolutely love this movie. its really great if you are looking for a fun romantic comedy.
