Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: There is literally nothing wrong with it. I don't have a single nit to pick, minor flaw to point out or little bit that annoyed me. It is pure magic from the first frame to the last. – Mark Rabinowitz,, Feb 15, 2013

Fresh: It isn't arty or intellectual, though it is artful and ingenious, and it's the rare crowd-pleaser that never feels obvious or pandering. – Rafer Guzman, Newsday, Feb 15, 2013

Fresh: The whole thing is so damn clever and charming, it might just sneak off with Best Picture. – David Thomson, The New Republic, Jun 20, 2013

Fresh: You can't fault it as smart entertainment, which eschews parody to make a sincere tribute that also serves as cogent current commentary. – Peter Howell, Toronto Star, Apr 17, 2012

Amazing glimpse into the silent world of old movies

Butter's Mcgee

Normally I have no issues with artsy fartsy movies but this is just painful to watch.

this truly is a film for the ages

If anybody has family that actually remember the era of silent films this movie should absolutely be shared with them. this movie can bridge generations and make fond memories of; let's just say a great grand kid and great grandparent
