Sentimental hogwash

Q Network Film Desk

Despite all his best intentions and last-minute editing, Cameron Crowe's free-flow romanticism may have finally gotten the better of him.

Cameron Crowe's heart is in the right place, but Elizabethtown probably works better as a tribute to his late father than the uplifting romantic comedy to which he aspires.

There's nothing quite like a death in the family to evoke romantic feelings and comedic chuckles in all of us.

Style Weekly (Richmond, VA)

Relentlessly lumbering, tone-deaf and even, by the end, a little repellent.

Mark Palermo
Coast (Halifax, Nova Scotia)

Elizabethtown is aggressive in its need to be loved. The effect of watching it is to witness over two hours of a movie hugging itself.

It's the too-cute contrivances on which the story is built that mean it's always teetering on the verge of collapse.

Shadows on the Wall

It's both strongly involving and a bit too clever for its own good.

You can't go home again, but if you do, you'd better discover yourself in the process or risk consignment to the slush pile of cinematic also-rans.

The film's problems lie with the lack of spark between a wired Dunst and a bland Bloom.

An off-the-map disaster...the New Orleans of 2005 movies.

Advocate (Baton Rouge, LA)

An epic of feel-goodness that can't find the exit.

Christopher Smith
Bangor Daily News (Maine)

A warm and fuzzy parable about failure and redemption, life and death, love won and love lost, love hanging in the balance. And yet it doesn't hang itself--well, not quite.

It's mind-boggling how Cameron Crowe got this one wrong.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

Rarely has a film managed to be this maddeningly meandering, forced, unbelievable and, ultimately, phony and uninvolving.

Orlando Weekly

Covering for the clear lack of narrative meat, Crowe piles on as many sloppily contrived 'movie moments' as he can.

All of these are rich and resonant because of Crowe's script, his direction and his ideas.

Elizabethtown is a wonderful comedy/drama about those moments in life when you get lost and have to find your way back again.
