The sum of the movie's parts amounts to a starstruck director entertaining himself more than he entertains us.

Although it starts off vaguely amusing, 8 Women grows progressively sour, curdled by the filmmakers' bad faith and lack of compassion.

Who killed the fun in 8 Women is the real blame game. Start nominating your suspects now.

Ozon finds women aesthetically pleasing, but has no desire to get close.

There's just enough of a hint at something interesting beneath the surface to make you wish Ozon had actually had the nerve to really go for it.

I can't remember one witty line or one moment of great acting.

Who did it is less important to Ozon than a lampooning of the Sirkian aesthetic of pure artifice, but there's too much irony in the air for him to spin anything but the most brittle of confections.

For all the tumultuous entrances and flouncing exits, the eight principals manage maybe three laughs among them.

It's more of a graduate seminar kind of fun than a Singin' in the Rain kind of fun.

The film starts to feel like decorative misogyny.

But while he reduces them to moving Barbie dolls, Ozon clearly loves his women. Or, as much as a catty drag queen can.

The whole is a sort of curdled cassoulet that annoys rather than amuses, bores rather than bites and tires rather than titillates.

How much viewers enjoy this depends on to what extent they're able to focus on the shining stars at the center while ignoring the narrative debris surrounding them.

The musical numbers are what ultimately undo the movie.

Simplistic, standard two hours of non-intellectually stimulating amusement.

Why didn't anybody think of doing this kind of weird Bollywood musical murder mystery before? Maybe because it is a stupid idea.

Inept, tedious kitsch that even at its best feels like John Waters minus the joie de vivre.

The result is shrill and charmless.

Top Critic IconTop Critic

Under the pretense of casting a spell of wonder, mystery, joy and despair, all Ozon has really done is set up a dry, lifeless environment in which ironic detachment -- the arch-enemy of all great art -- can flourish like a stingy cactus.
