If I wanted to make a musical today, I would want it to be like this movie.

The music is fun, familiar, and most importantly not forced. When characters break into song it doesn't seem quite as akward as it does in the standard musical.

It looks great, stars two gorgeous people who look stunning together, and an ending that will put a tear in your eye.

That's what this two-hour workout for the senses is all about: exploring, embracing and exploding all the cliches of the musical comedy genre. ... walks a tightrope between gaudy camp and full-bodied romance.

Director Baz Luhrman handles every scene in "Moulin Rouge" with the subtlety of a Hunter Thompson/Liberace acid trip. Wear edit-screen.

A Moulin Rouge le queda chica la pantalla; no sólo la satura, la desborda. Es una fiesta de color, de música, de pasión

I’ll take a daring failure like Moulin Rouge! over a prefabricated success like The Mummy Returns any day.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

It's directed with an eye for color, especially the color of rouge, by the pop-musical enthusiast, the Australian, Baz Luhrmann.

Even Luhrmann's MTV editing wouldn't be a bad thing if there were a point to it -- but it's an exercise in pointlessness.

The film isn't so much a reinvention of the musical genre as a reassertion of it.

Goatdog's Movies

The musical numbers take you to a place you've never been, the dialog reminds you that Luhrmann doesn't have anything new to say -- just a new way of sticking it together.

A daring and audacious film that may not only awaken the movie musical, but that will also place itself among the best films of this year.

[Luhrmann] gives you way too much of what you didn't really want in the first place: soulless high jinks.

Thrilling, glitzy, audacious, daring, silly, spectacular, excessive, dazzling, dizzying, sensational, decadent, respectful, rude, electrifying, stupefying. Take your pick.

Cinema Signals

It's a boisterous, panache-filled, colorful dance-a-thon love story that cleverly incorporates pop tunes from the late 20th century.

Mines the twentieth century to construct a musical extravaganza totally out of time with its narrative world. And it works, most of the time.
