REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..the movie strips away both the grand weirdness of the circus and the dire desolation of the depression..”
by Wesley Morris [Boston Globe]
“..the unexpectedly good film version of "Water for Elephants" elevates pure corn to a completely satisfying realm of romantic melodrama..”
by Michael Phillips [Chicago Tribune]
“..is mildly entertaining, though the best performances come not from the stars, but the supporting players..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
