A kooky, madcap adventure set in Barcelona devolves into a sort of sub -sub-Almodovar picture. Stay for the opening credits, then leave.

For a while, the sheer exoticism of the characters and the setting provides a certain amount of interest, but the film's farcical situations, mostly involving the sexual orientation of its characters, ultimately prove tiresome.

A mildly entertaining gender-bender comedy set in Barcelona, never quite lives up to its excellent cast or the onetime promise of director Susan Seidelman.

What should be a soufflé of gender-bending mischief is more like a bowl of oatmeal.

Even the crackpot architectural genius of Antonio Gaudi cannot elevate this silly little farce of sexual confusion from director Susan Seidelman and writer James Myhre.

The trumped-up alley-to-plaza intrigue could use more smoke and less mirrors.

Gaudi Afternoon is mostly dream, part nightmare, and part morality play surrounding the concept of mothering a young girl.

An emotionally and intellectually subtle work.

With a lovably quirky script, lovely production values and delightful performances by a strong cast, Gaudi Afternoon is Seidelman's best film yet.

The offbeat cast and gorgeous Barcelona locations can't quite make up for the thinness of the mystery and forced quirkiness of the characters and their tangled relationships.

A waste of talent.

Although the ending briefly dips into some silly sentimentality, the film as a whole is liberated by Cassandra's sardonic charm and a madcap exploration of the mother-daughter nexus.

It's a frothy romp played for the fun of it, and when the silliness dies down the pic can easily be forgotten.
