Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: It may be hyperbolic to describe Warren Beatty's Howard Hughes movie, "Rules Don't Apply," as a screwball "Citizen Kane." But that's what it feels like.
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..
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.
Rotten: There's a gulf between Hughes as we know him and Hughes as Beatty portrays him, and once you get past the sugarcoating, the rest of this film is more bitter than sweet.
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.
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!
