    For a movie that aims to make four artists' last spotlit hurrah a revel-worthy moment, Quartet shouldn't urge the viewer to welcome the closing of the curtain.

    What a brilliant film very funny Maggie Smith, Tom Courtenay ,Michael Gambon, Pauline Collins are great but for me Billy Connolly steals the show he is so funny some great music and amazing singing by some really talented stars well worth a watch. Full Review »

    Dustin Hoffman's directorial debut Quartet is beautifully shot and the acting is on the good side, but the story is tedious, the movie is painfully slow, and the ending is a cop out. Full Review »

    The Quartet is a well-made, but in the end thin feelgood story about aging. The story is based on a play script. This gives the scenes static feel and drag the movie instead of moving it forward. As summary, there just isn't enough in the mix to keep viewer intrigued. Full Review »
