    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Michael O'Sullivan
    More honest than any conventional morality tale. Here there are no heroes and no real villains; the good guys are all flawed and even bad guys are sometimes capable of the noblest of acts.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 80 Michael O'Sullivan
    Its real agenda is rip-roaring adventure, and that it delivers all wrapped up with a bow.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Michael O'Sullivan
    Crudup gives a performance that is by turns scary, heartbreaking, grotesque and funny as hell.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Michael O'Sullivan
    Very, very funny, in that morbid sort of way that makes you laugh even as you shudder with horror.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 80 Michael O'Sullivan
    In its heart burns the indomitable flame of the human spirit.
    • 66 Metascore

    A confection that is ultimately better because of its bitterness.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 80 Michael O'Sullivan
    First-time feature director Harald Zwart has a real flair for farce, and he keeps the outrageous high jinks of the script lively yet grounded in reality.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Michael O'Sullivan
    It also has heart and soul, two commodities all too often in short supply in the field of garden-variety cinema verite.
    • 40 Metascore

    • 80 Michael O'Sullivan
    Short on drama but long on poetry.
    • 64 Metascore

    • 80 Michael O'Sullivan
    Utterly delightful fable of romantic destiny.
    • 75 Metascore
    • 80 Michael O'Sullivan
    It's daring, deliberately offensive and, for a comedy, it has far more ideas in it than actual laughs.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Michael O'Sullivan
    Eminently watchable thanks to strong performances from its three leads (McKellen, Redgrave, Fraser).
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Michael O'Sullivan
    A decidedly grown-up affair.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 80 Michael O'Sullivan
    Manages to take the cerebral act of literary creation and make it exciting, sexy even.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 80 Michael O'Sullivan
    Little Voice may be more of a confection than a square meal, but it's proof of how good a dish can be when the ingredients are of the highest order.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 80 Michael O'Sullivan
    It's still pretty darn good, despite its smarty-pants aura.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 80 Michael O'Sullivan

    • 60 Metascore
    • 80 Michael O'Sullivan
