Rambling romance about a man truely in love with himself. Cilian Murphy has great talent, but not in this loser directed by Neil Jordan. My advice to Murphy...speak up and stop mumbling.

"Kitten" is one of the most admirable characters ever depicted on-screen.

Murphy's turn as the irrepressible Kitten is simply mesmerising - outrageous, tender and full of the sort of deep pain that no amount of make-up can conceal.

Another cross-dressing flick from Jordan, but this time with a wry sense of humour and whimsy, coupled with a fine soundtrack of UK bubblegum 70s tunes.

This is a long film that audiences will either love or dismiss.

Roaring with real life, Breakfast on Pluto belongs in that treasured subgenre, the gender bending memoir ...Cillian Murphy gives a career high performance as Kitten, so silky, so tough, so completely real that it haunts us.

It may not have the epic scope and complexity of Forrest Gump, but Breakfast on Pluto a small gem.

Breakfast on Pluto is definitely one of the most unusual, compelling films I have seen in quite some time.

As played by Murphy in what is an excellent performance, Kitten is sort of like a transvestite superhero--able to overcome impossible situations and look fabulous while doing it.

Breakfast on Pluto's novelistic feel can seem disjointed, but ultimately the structure frees the film to flit from one interesting encounter to another with a minimum of connecting material.

An amusing little romp, with all the substance of cotton candy.

It's awfully hard to take the material seriously, even though the plotting seems to demand it.

Murphy models his frocks comfortably enough, but "'Pluto" is draggy in other, disappointing ways.

Neil Jordan's Breakfast on Pluto bursts onto the screen ablaze with more color, more ideas, more nerve, more invention and more heart than just about anything imaginable.

An offbeat fairytale populated by colorful characters and spot-on performances.

It could have easily been 15 minutes shorter. But you can understand why Jordan wanted to spend so much time with such a singular hero (heroine?) as Patrick.

Enjoyable drama that's both darkly funny and emotionally engaging.
