Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Warren Beatty plays Howard Hughes with seductive charm, sneaky intelligence and buggy eccentricity. Sadly, Beatty as writer and director has chosen to make Hughes a supporting role, teasing a much deeper portrait.. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Nov 25, 2016

Fresh: This is a picture Beatty has wanted to make for years, and if the movie isn't the achievement it should be, it's at least entertaining in fits and starts. – Stephanie Zacharek, TIME Magazine, Nov 25, 2016

Fresh: [It's] a rousing entertainment with eye candy in abundance. Rules Don't Apply is witty and weird by turns. – Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal, Nov 23, 2016

Rotten: The central problem with "Rules Don't Apply," unfortunately, is the central romance. The characters don't appeal - the starlet has no particular spark, while the driver is a pushy go-getter. – Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger, Nov 23, 2016

A fine mess

Even though it's been edited to death, the movie finds it's footing somehow. Beatty is remarkable in the part of Hughes. The ending is great. Wish the dozen editors hadn't chopped up Ed Harris and Martin Sheen and so many scenes.

Beatty is really good

Both as a director and actor, Warren Beatty is undoubtedly a living legend. If he had only done Heaven can wait, he would be considered a brilliant artist. But he has always made brave, awkward, different choices and gone all the way with them. From Reds to Dick Tracy and now to Howard Hughes. This is a multi-dimensional way to tell the Hughes story and it never stops being entertaining and insightful. Good job Mr. B, Good Job!

A fabulous film

So glad I didn't go by the negative cirtics here and bought this film. Very well done and the dipiction of the time was right on. Love this movie.
