  1. It's a joy. Altman does Dallas the way he did "Nashville" in Nashville or Hollywood in "The Player."
  2. Reviewed by: David Edelstein
    A giddy ballet in which the women whirl around a still, clueless man.
  3. 80
    Altman orchestrates Dr. T's odyssey with the precision, heart and lively wit of a virtuoso.
  4. If you skim along the surface of this movie, you'll have more fun than if you submit the movie to scrutiny.
  5. Reviewed by: Mike Clark
    The movie's pleasures extend even to the visuals, which are more lustrous than in any other Altman movie.
  6. 60
    A flabby farce in which everyone seems to be making it up as they go along.
  7. 30
    Though it's allegedly a comedy, there is nothing funny about this tasteless, shallow and mean-spirited slam.

    Okay romantic comedy..too many characters, too many plots and subplots; really liked it until the end which I though was quite hokey..much better him just leaving in rain soaked cadillac going to nowhere Expand

    Very sad, being as Robert Altman is my favorite American filmmaker of all-time. I think he did a terrific job, for the most part, it was the story that just wasn't very appealing. It came off as thinking it was more intriguing and unique than it actually was. The final two minutes of the film dropped this a point and a half. I got it, but it was too out there for a film this "normal". Expand

    funny during a couple times but all and all it was by far the worst movie I have ever seen. [***SPOILERS***] How did he end up in Mexico? Dallas is about 500 miles from Mexico and a tornado couldnt throw you more than 5 miles. too normal to have that unrealistic of an ending. Expand
