Crazy in Alabama is an ungainly fit of three stories that have no business being shoehorned into the same movie.

Banderas' direction is as unstable as an isotope on Three Mile Island.

With its sluggish pace and awkward continuity, 'Crazy in Alabama' emerged as one of the most disappointing films released in 1999.

Stylistically uneven.

Because the civil rights sections are somber and serious and the Lucille sections exaggerated and giddy, Crazy in Alabama never finds any cohesive tone.

A key problem is that the Lucille storyline just doesn't work.

The film is all over the board and never demonstrates a dominant personality to lead the viewer through the story.

Banderas needs to stick to his day job after this one.

The movie flounders in the final reels, as a series of overextended courtroom scenes threaten to spell out every message Banderas and Childress have already underlined.

There are a lot of movies struggling to get out of Crazy in Alabama, and most of them are bad.

Too many scenes feel excessively underscored, either by Mark Snow's sentimental music, or by characters commenting on the action.

Griffith's performance is daffy and endearing, but the twisted comedy of her half of the tale eventually drives the movie right off the rails.
