Elizabethtown Reviews

Joshua Starnes

It's the fashion today for interpersonal dramas to go for bathos and high-stakes emotional conflict as characters cry out their darkest secrets to each other ... but director Cameron Crowe has taken a different tack.

Though Dunst is a saving grace, it's an awfully clunky, self-indulgent little heap of garbage.

Orlando Bloom gives a typically abysmal performance as a man-boy who doesn't know if he's old enough to shave yet.

Awash with sentimentality, this meandering tale falls way short of Crowe's usual standards.

The hero's nuclear family and kooky rural relatives are so sketchily conceived that none of the intended comedy works, and the balance of the movie is given over to one of Crowe's sugary romances.

So curious, and such a disappointment.

A meandering mood piece, with no tension, no chemistry, no character development, no plot and no point.

Crowe's capable of much better than this; let's hope he gets back on track with the next one.

The performances are solid . . . but it's Kentucky that really steals the show. Crowe paints the eccentricity of the locals with an affectionate brush.

The entire enterprise smacks of wish-fulfilment provoked by middle-age male guilt. Uplifting, it most certainly ain't.

Cinema em Cena

Embaraçosamente infantil, o filme ainda deixa claro que, além da falta de carisma, Bloom é um ator inexpressivo que não possui o menor timing cômico.

Crowe is still a master navigator of swampy territory, and any movie that can warm the heart and tickle the funny bone without selling its soul is to be cherished, warts and all.

30 seconds in, it lost me. 3 minutes in, it angered me. 13 minutes in, I wanted to start randomly garotting people in the next row. 23 minutes in, I actually tried to.

Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema

With Elizabethtown [Crowe] has made another heartfelt movie shot through with his sensibility. He's also made a gigantic mess, the first directorial misfire in his six-film oeuvre.

I was surprised to find myself strolling along the film's basic plotline, not necessarily bowled over by what I was seeing, but not exactly disliking it either.

Crowe has some very good ideas here, many of them interesting and funny, but the story lacks cohesion, focus, and contains one too many scenes that simply fall flat.

IGN Movies

If, as the film suggests, true greatness is defined by the willingness to fail, fail big and still stick around afterwards, then consider Elizabethtown a sweet, melancholy paean to that sad truth.

Elizabethtown is rather like an OK mix tape - waves of poignance, whimsy, interrupted by a forced anomaly, & then charm in the next track.
