Top Critic Reviews

Fresh: Hit and miss, but its tone of lyric melancholy is remarkably sustained.

Wes Anderson's most restrained film stylistically is a marvelous, multilayered character dramedy filled with memorable scenes and characters. It may not be on the same level as a "Rushmore" or "The Royal Tenenbaums" but it's pretty close. I've seen the film three times, and with every viewing I've appreciated it more and more. Definately way underrated.

A totally pointless film, whether you?re a fan of Owen Wilson or not you would at least expect this film to be filled with humour and that simply wasn?t the case. The storyline was not strong enough and it didn?t even have enough structure to call it corny. Not a recommendation.

It is painful to see the self-indulgent work that Wes Anderson made here, so pretentious and concerned about style over substance. The visuals are outstanding, but the empty story is pointless and boring, drifting nowhere with unfunny humor and weird seriousness.
