    Although the movie goes too far, you can hardly get enough of its delicious atmosphere - and of Turner, in particular, who has never looked better on the big screen. [8 Dec 1989]

    • 75 Peter Stack
    The big screen -- with that 3-D depth charge -- captures the strange magic of the "big top" Cirque in visual gulps.

    • 76 Metascore
    • 75 Peter Stack

    Fascinating, obnoxious and poignant.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 75 Peter Stack
    A lot more than the sum of its delicately balanced parts.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 75 Peter Stack
    Everything comes up forced and predictable in the nostalgic overload of bongs, Top 40 rock and boys' bluster about sex.

    • 75 Peter Stack
    Achieves a rare interweaving of the darkly poetical and raspy, cockeyed comedy.

    • 57 Metascore
    • 75 Peter Stack
