REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Not quite bad, but it's not recommended either.    Readers  Be the 1st!

“..the film's engaging performances and ever-spiraling hysteria make its two-and-a-half-hour running time fly by..”
by Lisa Tsering [Hollywood Reporter]
“..in "Bol Bachchan" honesty and dishonesty have the same comic weight, and their clash has no meaning. It just produces jokes, which are all the same: mad scrambles to make the lies watertight..”
by Rachel Saltz [NY Times]
“..empty action-comedy set pieces over well-thought-out farce mechanics is ultimately wearying..”
by Robert Abele [LA Times]
“.."Bol" nevertheless keeps its plates spinning and hoops in the air with commendable aplomb, though few elements prove particularly funny in and of themselves..”
by Ronnie Scheib [Variety]
2.5 of 5

by Stephanie Merry [Washington Post]

POLTERGEIST :

by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE III :

“..more depravity, more terrible acting..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

ALOFT :

“..the rest of it - the healer, the journalist, the falcons - is just a thick, tedious layer of frost on the window..”
by Katharine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

RETURN TO SENDER :

“..the camera prowls menacingly through the interiors, but the writers seem too content with their improbable conceit to bother with back story or character arcs..”
by David Parkinson [Radio Times]

ROOMMATE WANTED :

“..there's plenty of entertainment value to found. Just don't expect to leave the film with a smile on your face and joy in your heart..”
by Blair Hoyle [Cinema Slasher]

CAROL :

“..it is a creamily sensuous, richly observed piece of work, handsomely detailed and furnished..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]

YOUTH :

“..Youth has a wan eloquence and elegance, though freighted with sentimentality and a strangely unearned and uninteresting macho-geriatric regret for lost time, lost film projects, lost love..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]
