Top Critic Reviews
Rotten: It's an affected film about disaffected people, and no cast in the world could save it.
- Amy Biancolli, Houston Chronicle, Friday, October 19, 2007
Fresh: The Darjeeling Limited works best when the level of artifice is at its highest and most overt.
- Anthony Lane, New Yorker, Tuesday, October 9, 2007
Fresh: Apart from having thus created the first road-picture homework assignment, Anderson isn't breaking new ground here. But he and his actors appear to be having a larkish good time.

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.
