“..winning performances grace this entertaining but overlong Big Chill-esque dramedy..”
by Michael Rechtshaffen [Hollywood Reporter]
“..rather than crafting a French film that will appeal to Americans, Canet has made one that's altogether too Hollywood to stand out in stateside cinemas..”
by Mark Jenkins [NPR]
4 of 5

“..it's overlong, but with its gorgeous cast, irreverent humour and beautifully drawn characters, this smart comedy-drama is the kind of movie Couples Retreat and Grown Ups should have been..”
by Anna Smith [Empire Online]
“..it doesn't peer very deeply into the souls of these spoiled, marginally sympathetic narcissists, whose ties to one another seem superficial, its commercial future in America seems problematic..”
by Stephen Holden [NY Times]
2.5 of 4

“..is such a blatant rip-off of a far better American movie that it could have been called "Le Big Chill"..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]
“..after the narrative precision required for "Tell No One," Canet might have welcomed a looser approach. But two and a half hours is an absurdly bloated running time for such a trifle. It's not a trip to remember..”
by Sheri Linden [LA Times]
3 of 4

“.."Little White Lies" will be just as charmed as it was..”
by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger]

LATEST REVIEWS

BIG EYES :

“..despite its sharp feminist sting, Big Eyes never loses its light touch..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

PK :

“..PK movie is all that you anticipated, a paisa-vasool entertaining movie that will enthrall you for sure..”
by Priyanka Prasad [Filmibeat]

INTO THE WOODS :

“..will entertain youth audiences yet contains enough sly humor and narrative complexity to keep adults engaged..”
by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter]

NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM: SECRET OF THE TOMB :

“..there's a serenity to museum visits, especially if it's a place you know and love. "Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb," amazingly, recaptures that feeling in big-studio franchise form..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

ELF: BUDDY'S MUSICAL CHRISTMAS :

“.."Elf" offers some slight, warmed over charms, but viewers would be better off catching one of the umpteen TV showings of the original "Elf" movie..”
by Rob Owen [Pittsburgh Post-Gazette]

THE INTERVIEW :

“..wild and wildly uneven..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

TWO DAYS, ONE NIGHT :

“..it's a rare film of unforced simplicity that will stick with you for a long time. And it's honest right to its perfectly judged ending..”
by Kim Newman [Empire Online]

THE GAMBLER :

“..a slick remake of the gritty original is marked by sharp performances..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

MR. TURNER :

“..an ecstatically beautiful and exquisitely detailed portrait of the artist as a cantankerous middle-aged man..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]

SONG OF THE SEA :

“..a gorgeously rendered animated feature from Ireland..”
by Boyd van Hoeij [Hollywood Reporter]
