Roger Ebert

Altman and his writer, former Chicago Sun-Times reporter Barbara Shulgasser, should have gone further and been meaner; too many of his jokes are generic slapstick, instead of being aimed squarely at industry's targets.

Despite some delicious moments, this sluggish, overlong, halfhearted satire feels like a movie that wanted to go somewhere but never got there.

I got the feeling that Altman didn't really have any idea what he wanted to say with this film (which he later conceded in a TV interview).

The spoof goes nowhere and takes a long time in doing so.

Bryant Frazer's Deep Focus

So overblown, so full of itself and yet so exquisitely empty, that we're left wondering whether, in his haste to expose the Emperor's New Clothes, the artist has stopped near a mirror to check his own dangerously ephemeral finery.

Robert Altman may be the most inconsistent American film director alive.

The picture is not a social satire. It's a mess.

Ready to Wear is to filmmaking what paper dresses were to fashion -- thin, trendy, and disposable.

It seems like a very long wait to get to the various punch lines.

Though it credits Mr. Altman and Barbara Shulgasser as writers, this film seems practically scriptless, to the point where much of it plays like a first rehearsal.
