    Pleasantville has wonderful acting from Maguire, Witherspoon, Daniels, Macy and Allen. The movie has black and white and color mixed. The movie has a unique style and is suitable for your family. Pleasantville is a work of art that is one of the outstanding movies of the last twenty years.

    Offers effortless charm, wit, and originality in spades.
  2. 70
    Lacks the edge and depth of a truly inspired work.
  3. The movie's simplistic storyline does not match its stunning visual accomplishments: Pleasantville's story is drawn from a palette that's strictly limited to black-and-white.
