...generally comes off as an effective adaptation of Scott Phillips' admittedly superior novel...

When a lot of you tell me you want intelligent movies made by adults for adults, you're asking for movies like this one.

Combustible Celluloid

A great cast, a script by Oscar-winning veteran Robert Benton, with Richard Russo, and direction by Harold Ramis still don't add up to much more than a shrug.

90% cynicism / 10% hope, and it's jammed full of funny performances, dark divergences, and a low-key air of existential angst that you simply don't see in many multiplex movies. I love this one.

There's an enjoyably pulpy vibe to The Ice Harvest, aided considerably by the performance of a flame-haired, throaty-voiced Connie Nielsen who vamps it up like a 1940s femme fatale.

Robert Benton and Harold Ramis, put on dunce caps and go stand in the corner.

Memo to John Cusack: There's a thin line between humorous unflappability in the face of strange events, and sleepwalking.

A total (bomb), the wrong project for almost everyone involved.

It's perfectly possible to enjoy The Ice Harvest, just as soon as you recognize it as Harold Ramis' willful attempt to thwart every expectation he's built up in his career as a cineplex funster.

Nielsen's Renata is icy cold in her calculations, and an object lesson in how to play a lethal charmer plausibly without losing any of her erotic appeal. She alone is worth the price of admission.

Reno Gazette-Journal

A film populated by nasty characters who spend nearly 90 minutes doing nasty things to one another. That some of those things are darkly funny helps, but not enough to merit a viewing.

Another barren black comedy that skates a thin line between bad taste and gift-wrapped stupidity.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

Feels too much like Coen Brothers Lite -- and it's too busy nailing down the cynicism to worry too much about the quirkiness that tends to make the Coens' work palatable.

Creative Loafing

As an exercise in neo-noir, the film is surprisingly inert, and as a dark comedy, it fails to offer many laughs.

Viewers are likely to leave this movie not having laughed as much as they expected, not having gotten as many thrills as they hoped for and ambivalent to the experience.
