Russell Crowe brings to bear his now-familiar acting tics in a not-so-tender romance by director Ridley Scott.

[Russel Crowe's] supply of quips and pratfalls is inexhaustible, even when he's trapped at the bottom of a swimming pool surrounded by peat and dry leaves. Alas, he escapes.

Crowe has located his funnybone again in a conventional but engaging romantic comedy ...

This Gallic tourist-porn feels as stale as yesterday's baguette.

'Look Homeward, Gladiator' hints at new dimensions of warmth and heart in Russell Crowe and Ridley Scott. They're not there yet, but they're headed in the right direction.

Greenwich Village Gazette

It's so goddamned cute you almost want to puke, but you don't. This is the most charming movie of the year, and it comes within an inch of being too sweet to stand, but it doesn't get there.

The course A Good Year takes feels like it's on rails: there's only one possible destination and only one way to get there.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

Scott's film is like a reproduction of things he's seen in romantic comedies over the years with no idea why they're there.

Alternately, you could do your laundry, which would be just as exciting and possibly more dramatic.

Philadelphia Weekly

A leaden attempt at an upbeat romp from the downcast, feel-bad tag team of actor Russell Crowe and director Ridley Scott, the movie is like hearing a knock-knock joke told by a mortician.

They [director Ridley Scott and star Russell Crowe] may have had a good time making the film, but I can't say I did while watching it.

You can do worse than seeing a movie with gorgeous scenery, a predictable plot and sweet characters.

Provence looks like a lovely place to visit and Mr. Scott deserves his rest now and then, but let's hope he gets back to darker work soon.

Coast (Halifax, Nova Scotia)

Every Scott movie has worthwhile visual dazzle, but this is what happens when Hollywood giants lecture against the evils of wealth.

Russell Crowe trying to twinkle may not be the most unsettling thing on the big screen this season, but it's up there.

Russell Crowe has many talents, but a gift for light comedy is not one of them.
