Director Lawrence Kasdan and Frank Galati adapted their screenplay for The Accidental Tourist from Anne Tyler's novel. William Hurt plays Macon Leary, a well-known "travel advisor" headquartered in Baltimore. The tragic death of Leary's son causes him to withdraw from the world, which in turn prompts his wife (Kathleen Turner) to walk out on him.

Critic Reviews for The Accidental Tourist

All Critics (33) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (22) | Rotten (6) | DVD (14)

The film tries so hard to be funny, but ends up feeling like a rejected Woody ALlen script idea.

Full Review… | August 15, 2011
Cinema Sight

A mature, well-made film for teens and adults.

Full Review… | January 2, 2011
Common Sense Media

Kasdan's film lacks the spirit of Tyler's novel; he seems to be the wrong director to translate the author's affectionate and humorous treatment of the characters. Fortunately, Geena Davis as the eccentric dog-walker elevates the otherwise morose mood.

EmanuelLevy.Com

A genuinely beautiful and human story out of the Hollywood mills. Subtly amazing work from all concerned.

June 4, 2005
ÜberCiné

This is a warm movie told in the temperature of almost-recognizable life; it's a believable love story, joked up a bit but not too much.

Full Review… | April 20, 2004
Nick's Flick Picks

Beautifully-acted comedy-drama that doesn't overdose on its quirks.

August 14, 2003
Capital Times (Madison, WI)

Hurt and Davis at their peaks in a touching, well-crafted drama

August 5, 2003
Kalamazoo Gazette

Stiff and boring, with only Davis giving it a burst of life.

March 2, 2003
San Francisco Examiner

Literate and engaging, loaded with great actors, and (surprisingly) also rather funny.

July 27, 2002
eFilmCritic.com

'O Turista Acidental' não é empolgante, não tem cenas marcantes e não nos apresenta personagens particularmente carismáticos. E, no entanto, é um filme muito bom.

Full Review… | May 31, 2002
Cinema em Cena

A romantic comedy that offers an engaging look at the many meanings of love and change in the lives of a travel guidebook writer and a dog trainer.

Full Review… | January 15, 2002
Spirituality and Practice

Hurt is the virtuoso, rising above the Lawrence Kasdan histrionics and some loose acting.

Audience Reviews for The Accidental Tourist

William Hurt sure made some really great movies back in the 80s and 90s. I cant say that I have watched anything lately that he has starred in. This movie was very good. I had a hard time getting past Geena Davis and her horrible 80s fashion, but I guess that I cant blame the movie itself...just the era. This movie had a very nice ending, which is always a plus for me.

The Accidental Tourist starring Geena Davis, William Hurt and Kathleen Turner is a very good film based on the best selling novel.

William Hurt and Kathleen Turner play a couple who's child passes away which places a lot of strain on the marriage. The couple divorces and in comes an off the wall lady into his ife (Geena Davis). She re introduces a new passon in his life...Geena Davis won the Oscar for the Best Supporting Actress and rightfully so.

The thing I really love about Kasdan's scripts is that he tells us what happened without TELLING us what happened. A little slow past the first half but still neatly wrapped with great underscored humor. I love Welsh Corgis!

Average gentle, wryly amusing study of love triumphing over indifference.
