  1. The good news about Claude Lelouch's And Now Ladies and Gentlemen -- there's no bad news -- is that the man who made the sublimely superficial "A Man and a Woman" almost four decades ago has grown in wisdom and artistry, but hasn't lost his love of glossy surfaces.

    The core relationship is what makes the movie with this ill-advised title a well-advised choice.
  3. 63
    The movie is so extravagant and outrageous in its storytelling that it resists criticism: It's self-satirizing.
  4. Reviewed by: Derek Elley

    A good-looking but slim confection that's short on the multi-characterisation and sense of entwined destinies that mark the great Lelouch sagas.
  5. 50
    Like a Bond picture with no spies or villains or car chases or gadgets or explosions.
  6. It's too insubstantial to support its two-hour-plus running time, and too arbitrary to work as a story, so you walk out wondering not happened, but whether anything actually did.
  7. 20
    An exercise in vanity, indulgence and a startling degree of shallowness.
