The most stunning thing about Pleasantville is the film's look, which rivals that of the year's other two most visually-impressive productions, Dark City and What Dreams May Come.

Film Journal International

Richly entertaining and technically innovative, but it's also a movie with an outspoken point of view about the direction in which American culture ought to be headed.

The movie has less biting originality than The Truman Show, but it proves that director Ross retains screenwriter Ross's flair for exploring real-life issues through divertingly far-fetched plots.

A pretty nice place to visit for a while. But to be honest, a two-hour trip there seems like too much of a good thing.
