  1. It's so thoroughly engaging, so beautifully made, strikingly shot and chock-full of humor and humanity, I can't imagine any intelligent audience not falling in love with it - if only they take the leap of faith to see it.

    Consistently offbeat and entertaining; at such moments, it is also quite moving.

    Jensen's charming film, is perhaps one of the first in which the actors are credited not by the size of their salaries and egos, but by their vocal ranges.
  4. Ranging in age from 30 to 96, the Berlevag men clearly enjoy being on camera and are unusually candid about their various pasts as Casanovas and hashish addicts.
  5. Every time things start to get dull, you're brought up short by another moment of surprising beauty.

    If music be the food of love, Cool & Crazy could stand a few more hits from the spice rack.
