I don't think anyone would argue that 'Catch Me If You Can' is one of Spielberg's best films. However, it is good enough and passes a pleasant couple of hours.

The movie is a good time. It not only produces happiness, it is happy.

This is the director's most likeable film in ages, even if it's insubstantial, overlong and, frankly, a touch redundant.

The movie is -- intentionally or otherwise -- a remarkable parable about denying reality until reality catches up to you.

...the film would've been vastly improved had it been trimmed down to 90 minutes.

The stylish, cartoon-like opening credits reminded me of the snazzy beginnings of the Peter Sellers-Pink Panther movies.

One of Spielberg's finest pieces of storytelling. Helps make up for A.I.

Steven Spielberg's new film is lighthearted and enjoyable, with just enough undercurrents of human frailty to keep the story interesting.

It's Spielberg who pulls the con by leading us down a familiar path only to rup the rug out from under us.

Spielberg. . .supersedes even himself with one of the most enjoyable and compelling films of his career.

In a holiday season characterized by heavy cinematic fare, Stephen Spielberg has concocted a frothy trifle.

Is this a light-hearted romp? Is this a psychological drama? Is it a thriller? Can it be all three? Not quite, Sort of. Uh Uh. And dear lord no.

What could have been a great film is merely a good one, by way of forsaking the gritty details for directorial sleight of hand.

Es casi una reconciliación con el mejor Spielberg...

Hanratty isn't a strictly factual character - he's called O'Reilly in the book, not his real name either - but the performance Hanks gives makes you wish he were. Abagnale isn't strictly factual either, but DiCaprio makes him an attractive counterfeit.

This is a delectable film indeed.
