Just because the characters are crazy, that doesn't mean they are not smart.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

The pleasing acting jobs by the two protagonists makes all this sugar easier to swallow, but not enough to find this film anything more than a mere diversion.

One Guy's Opinion

By maintaining a modest stance and a gentle, affectionate tone it emerges as winning rather than wearying.

Tedious Norwegian offering which somehow snagged an Oscar nomination.

The moral is not too original, but the offbeat characters certainly are.

Jeff Vice
Deseret News, Salt Lake City

The film's brand of humor seems a bit too broad, and the quirks of its main characters aren't really all that endearing, instead coming off as irritating and tiresome.

Elling, portrayed with quiet fastidiousness by Per Christian Ellefsen, is a truly singular character, one whose frailties are only slightly magnified versions of the ones that vex nearly everyone.

Touches smartly and wistfully on a number of themes, not least the notion that the marginal members of society ... might benefit from a helping hand and a friendly kick in the pants.

A witty and sophisticated sensibility brings individuality to the classic odd-couple comedy.
