Spacey may worship at the altar of Darin, but the real Bobby was beyond him.

Great music and a few good scenes do not a movie make.

Edward Douglas

So self-indulgent and all over the place that it never truly finds its feet.

Chris Hewitt (St. Paul)
St. Paul Pioneer Press

A movie so inventive and varied in its badness that it's almost good.

Film Threat

Directorial chutzpah is not nearly enough to save this dull and distant vanity project.

Lessons of Darkness

Gimmicky recounting of the crooner's life.

A vainglorious valentine, but either act or direct. Please don't do both.

Brian Orndorf

Spacey's tinkering is perplexing, and conspires against the real reason any film about Darin should be made: to showcase Darin's sublime natural abilities.

Prairie Miller
Long Island Press

A two hour shoulder shrugger for those too young to even know who Bobby Darin is, and what all this fuss is about.

Mark R. Leeper

looks beneath the superficial glamour of Bobby Darin to find . . . not a whole lot that would not have been in the fan magazines

Embodies everything that is worst about movie musicals

Spacey doesn't pass as Darin, and everything else is flat.

Beyond the Sea is a mishmash that's interesting only as a document of Spacey's obsessions.

Nick Rogers
State Journal-Register (Springfield, IL)

Kevin Spacey has made a passionless one-man show about the wrong man. It's a showcase for the star-director's pipes, no doubt, but also his pretensions.

Christopher Smith
Bangor Daily News (Maine)

A showy, energetic little soap opera whose best moments come when Spacey plays it straight.

Mixed Reviews

A vain attempt not only to restore Darin's place in history, but to improve upon it... Colick's underdeveloped screenplay has trouble placing Darin's life onto a heroic scale.

Carlo Cavagna

The film winds up being more a celebration of Spacey than Darin.

You can't get much more Hollywood than a movie about a performer in which success is synonymous with quality.

Exuberant, ambitious biopic that's engaging and entertaining yet strangely superficial. The razzle-dazzle fizzles out.
