Pretentious, indulgent, tiresome exercise in star-strutting and seediness.

There may not be anyone else who is as capable of romanticizing bummed-out good taste as Mr. Wenders.

Pretentious and trite in a way that you can get away with in a rock song or a music video, but that becomes almost unbearably irritating in a full-length feature.

If you're a Wenders admirer and can give yourself over to his gorgeous verging-on-surreal vision, you can come away deeply moved.

The most interesting thing I've ever seen [Mel Gibson] do.

Take the last exit off the highway to art movie hell, and you'll probably have to stay at The Million Dollar Hotel.

Poetic nonsense.

A plodding, self-indulgent exercise in pomposity over substance.

Longtime Wenders fans will undoubtedly welcome the affront to conventional storytelling while others, attracted by the marquee value of Mel Gibson, are more likely to leave the theatre scratching their heads.

Boring waste of celluloid.

Ken Fox
TV Guide's Movie Guide

Too long, the willful eccentricity is grating and the hackneyed moral -- real life is better than TV -- is so silly it's best taken ironically.

Even alternative cinema god, Wenders, and rock's last great savior, Bono, are doing little more than recycling the material and cardboard people that Hollywood machinery has assigned as the harmless, loveable freaks.

New Times

Despite its ramshackle structure, The Million Dollar Hotel is festooned with enough odd trappings to keep it enjoyable.

Something of a monstrosity -- liquored self-indulgence taken to its own astral plane.

Vacuous, tedious, pretentious and featuring some uniformly atrocious acting.

Harvey S. Karten

Listening to these people prattle on and watching the St. Vitus-Dance antics of Jeremy Davies in the role of Tom-Tom is an exericise in tedium.

An absorbing picture of thwarted aspirations and self-destructive behaviour.

January 16, 2001

We have to spend time with a plethora of wretched cretins, who get to be annoying very quickly.

Ultimately falls flat in most categories except that of arty pretension.
