  1. Gaudi Afternoon, adapted from Barbara Wilson's novel, is a setup for a smart ensemble comedy, and the cast delivers in hilarious deadpan style.

    Even with its over-the-top performances, Gaudi Afternoon is an emotionally and intellectually subtle work.

    Silly, childish fun and as relaxing to watch as good American TV fiction -- and with a very similar world view.
  4. 50
    Beautifully photographed and fitfully amusing, Gaudi Afternoon would be an impressive film from a first-timer, but Seidelman is experienced enough to know she should have told the actors not to camp things up so excessively.
  5. The offbeat cast and gorgeous Barcelona locations can't quite make up for the thinness of the mystery and forced quirkiness of the characters and their tangled relationships.
  6. 30
    The air leaks out of Gaudí Afternoon gradually but steadily, until all we're left with is a limp rag of a balloon.
  7. What should be a soufflé of gender-bending mischief is more like a bowl of oatmeal.
