  1. There's much subtle beauty in the last movie completed by Merchant Ivory Productions before Merchant's untimely death.
  2. Heights is stage-bound throughout, and the secrets it would like to keep are very predictable. But its heart is in the right place, and the performances are first-rate.
  3. 60
    Terrio keeps the multiple stories flowing smoothly, and the setting goes a long way to justify the web of fortuitous interconnections -- New York is the ultimate two-degrees-of-separation town.
  4. 60
    In this study of keeping up appearances while everything falls apart, the stakes never seem as high as the title suggests.
  5. 50
    As enjoyable as Close is, Heights as a whole is a mannered simulation that only occasionally and accidentally feels like real New York life.
  6. 30
    Heights is nothing more than a second-rate version of several much better movies, all of which are available on DVD and video.

    I don't know how people can do cartwheels for a terrible movie like "You, me and Everyone we Know", and pan this one. It has really good I don't know how people can do cartwheels for a terrible movie like "You, me and Everyone we Know", and pan this one. It has really good dialougue and acting. Elizabeth Banks is going to be huge--she's great in everything, comedy and drama. This is a solid, entertaining movie worth seeing. Expand

    Interesting storyline, excellent cast, and good performances. Poor sound or an inferior print resulted in my not giving this film a higher Interesting storyline, excellent cast, and good performances. Poor sound or an inferior print resulted in my not giving this film a higher rating. I missed too many crucial lines. Even when a film is operating within the confines of a low budget, there is no excuse for second rate sound or substandard equipment. Expand

    A movie that means well with very good actors but limited dialogue and predictable TV sitcom-type behavior. Glenn Close does her best, and A movie that means well with very good actors but limited dialogue and predictable TV sitcom-type behavior. Glenn Close does her best, and that's worth a watch. Expand

    This is a terrible movie that got some good reviews because it has a gay love scene.
