Critic Reviews for Boogie Woogie

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (7)

Boogie Woogie delivers little more than a lukewarm spoof.

Top Critic

[The film's characters] are so repellent that almost everyone outside the movie's fetid hothouse will want to flee to fresher air.

Goes over the top now and then, but overall it's a lot of nasty fun.

New York Post
Top Critic

The cast of superficial backstabbers, casual philanderers, and gibberish-spouting phonies has no original characters, but at least a few of the actors attack their roles with a zest that offsets their two-dimensionality.

A tepid spoof that only occasionally evokes a reluctant smile.

Top Critic

A travesty no matter how you look at it, this flaccid art-world farce is best approached as a landmark of dubious ensemble work.

Audience Reviews for Boogie Woogie


Disposible comedy supposedly about the upper echelons of the art world aesthetic, where what everyone really wants is the most expensive painting, and maybe to sleep with the wife of whoever owns it, or her close friend, or her dog walker. It's like a oversimplification of joke: everything's lost. Needs remodeling.

Average. It started out very bad - over the top hammy acting, very unconvincing and just all round bad. Thankfully it does pick up a little, and it has a good cast including Amanda Seyfried, Heather Graham, Gillian Anderson and Alan Cumming. Can't say I loved it,and they could all do much better than this movie, but it was worth at least one watch. I think.... To be honest, I am not sure what they were trying to do with this. Was it meant to be funny or clever or maybe just titilating.

Super Reviewer

Not a good movie, it kinda has all actors that can't act in a single movie. Story was kinda sucky and non interesting.

A comedy of manners set against the backdrop of contemporary London and the international art scene.
