There's the kernel of an intriguing idea that we can almost grasp, but it's lost in the morass of expertly staged but irrelevant scenes.

Hampered by a flighty tone that wears mighty thin by the time the two-hour picture ... takes its final over-the-top turn.

Ultimately, Dr. T is the cinematic equivalent of shooting well-dressed turkeys in a barrel.

For those who don't mind being whipsawed between Rapp's characters and Altman's caricatures, there is much to enjoy in Dr. T.

Has hardly any plot at all, or believable characters.

The slightly anachronistic absurdity of the conceit -- the travails of a lone gentleman in a world of ladies -- gives the actors room to do some wonderful work.

After the film wanders for two hours, growing more and more absurd, it ends in an extremely unsatisfying way.

Without exception, every one of Dr. T's -- and thus Altman's -- women is either neurotic, needy, naked, or a lesbian. In other words, either a male fantasy or a male fear.

Dr. T raises some seductive questions ... and mixes them up in a madcap and outlandish blender swirl. Through the murk, it's often hard to see the movie's heart.

Lighter and less compelling than Altman's best efforts, the new one produces a low-level, but still enjoyable, buzz.

While it's impossible to call anything fashioned by a man of Altman's skill unwatchable, there are times when this pedantic and dull effort comes close.

Dr. T is vintage Altman, the best movie he's made since Short Cuts.

[Altman] and Gere, surrounded by various blondes in extremis, mostly keep it entertainingly rambunctious.

On the surface, Altman's film is clearly meant as a paean to the variety and emotional fecundity of women, but scratch the surface, and you realize that underneath, it's not so pretty.

Altman and his congenially matched screenwriter Anne Rapp wrap some stinging psychological and emotional observations in a beguiling package.

What holds the stories and the characters together is the decency of Dr. T, and Gere seems wholly comfortable with the role.

Lacks the resonance of a major Altman film ... but it's a funny and ebullient look at a man in full confusion.

Many of [Altman's] observations have the strength of truth softened by indulgence and ultimate acceptance.

Altman and screenwriter Annie Rapp ... have playfully turned upside down any expectations raised by Gere's normally aloof star persona.

It's a terrific showcase for Richard Gere, Shelley Long, Farrah Fawcett and a number of other actors who almost seemed to have been written off.

If the film ultimately feels overindulgent and hardly among [Altman's] best work ... it's still a jauntily entertaining ride.
