It's not the pie that is meant to make this watchable, it is Wai's greatest gift, observing people, little slices of life in New York, Memphis or Nevada. Unfortunately in this case, those slices don't add up to a meal, or even dessert.

... dreamy, woozy, elliptical and gorgeously infused with orange-red light and smeary Matisse blues. It's visually beautiful and its open-ended narrative is loose and suggestive

But it's not the English that seems to trip up the writer-director; it's the language. Wong's script, co-written with Lawrence Block, tosses out the filmmaker's genius for non-verbal characterization and replaces it with talk, talk, talk.

Only in flashes does Wong Kar-Wai let you forget about the relentless, meticulous beauty long enough to lose yourself inside it.

The film is 90 minutes that feel like a lifetime as nothing really happens ... disappointing at best and extremely aggravating at worst.

I think there's a lot of miscasting going on here.

My Blueberry Nights proves Norah Jones isn't ready for a movie career quite yet.

Like My Blueberry Nights, [Jones' Elizabeth] is a looker with depressingly little going on beneath her striking facade.

My Blueberry Nights at any length doesn't begin to answer the question why Jones, who seems nice in a bland, girl next door way, would ever be tapped to star in a movie.

Saccharine, cliched, groaningly predictable and -- in short -- utterly abysmal.

What the film ends up feeling like is someone else's clumsy attempt to imitate Kar-Wai's style while missing out on his obsessive perfection and emotional depth.

A calorie-free snack masquerading as a substantial meal.

[Norah Jones] is a blank presence -- she can't give the film the heart or soul it needs.

The story had promise but it ends up being half baked by a director who wants to show off that he went to film school.

My Blueberry Nights plays much like a dream; different vignettes fade into each other ... [but] nothing ever quite adds up.

... while the actors' dialogue delivery is perfectly natural, the aphoristic philosophical nuggets Wong favors sound banal and clunky in this context, leaving the film thematically in the shallow end of the pool.

The movie is all over the map in more than just its cross-country itinerary, and these stars are all far too good looking to imagine them as unrequited lovers and perpetual losers. But that blueberry pie sure looks awfully good.

Critical darling auteur Wong Kar Wai may have a knack for luscious cinematic compositions, but his limited narrative sensibilities hobble this scattershot romantic drama.

Stunning photography and Wong's formidable directing abilities cannot salvage this emotionally empty exercise in style.
