    Forman imbues the material with exactly the right dry, satirical flavor, yet this story is still a Frank Capra little-guy-against-the-system picture.

    Conveys not just a joy in music and The Beatles, but a joy in cinema.

    Movie excitement from beginning to end.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 90 Robert Horton
    Well-crafted scenes that carry a bracingly grown-up tang: unhurried, played in a low key, with plenty of time to savor the details of character and place.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 90 Robert Horton
    One of the best films of the year, a polished, contained piece of provocation.

    An unleashed Raimi may be a more exciting moviemaker, but there's something to be said for the virtues of a good story well told, which describes A Simple Plan down to its last shivery snowflake.

    This is a beautiful, surprisingly uplifting movie, made by someone who actually understands people.

    Doesn't have the purity, the sense of discovery, of the first Toy Story, but it's still an utter delight. Its images and gags keep replaying themselves in the mind well after the film is over.

    • 90 Robert Horton
    It's like a madly inventive hybrid of "Dr. Strangelove" and "The Treasure of the Sierra Madre."

    It's Kubrick, for sure, and in often mesmerizing form.

    Furiously uncompromising, and therefore absolutely alive.

    Part of the appeal of John Irving's writing is its sense of bounty, the way the world is offered up as a horn of plenty. The Cider House Rules movie, by contrast, feels narrowed down to small slices of experience.

    Like other aspects of this film, the image may be a little too perfect, a little too careful.

    I'm not sure how elaborately I could defend Pola X, but I loved watching it.

    Director Stephen Daldry gets it right.

    It's swell when a film really does capture a book in some exactitude.

    Strangely enough, this movie provides a lot of the James Bond veneer that has been missing from recent James Bond movies.

    Once again writer-director Cameron Crowe has gotten all the little details just right.

    A fitting tribute to an era, a writer, and an unapologetic eccentric.

    Kate Hudson's accent is spot-on, and she brings her megawattage to good use on the Gershwin standard, "The Man I Love."
    • 84 Metascore

    It's great that this movie exists.
    • 87 Metascore

    It's got both the sweeping spectacle and the keen, tactile sense of human intimacy.

    All I can say is this particular excursion into screwball madness is often heavenly, and frankly leaves critical explication somewhat unnecessary. Go see it and laugh.

    A smart, engaging movie.

    It is thrilling to look at, and that's more than one can say for the majority of pictures out there.

    Never less than dazzling to look at, and the scorching humor keeps it alive from scene to scene.
