Movie Info

Woody Allen and Bette Midler star as a well-heeled couple who spend their 16th wedding anniversary at the mall shopping for a party that they're throwing that night. In the course of the shopping afternoon, they watch their marriage hit the rocks as serious problems develop when the guy admits to an earlier infidelity, and an out-and-out argument develops. ~ Rovi

Paul Mazursky's 14th film as director is a cozy, insular middle-aged marital comedy that's about as deep and rewarding as a day of mall-cruising.

Mazursky has returned with a vengeance to his special universe where the upper middle class is the only thing that exists, and this time he has absolutely nothing to say about it.

Allen's admittedly funny lines get lost in the mess, and Midler, in relatively restrained mode, fades away altogether.

Scenes From a Mall is a peculiar but, finally, very engaging comedy.

When a movie seems overflowing with interesting, colorful details, that is often a sign of desperation -- a way of saying, if the picture's no good, get a gaudier frame.

A close-up look at a couple's painful catharsis so well wedded to marital discord it's like going through a divorce with yourself.

There are moments here and there, but it's mostly ordinary, unimaginative writing. Midler and Allen deserve better.

Sorta funny, but the gap yawns between what it is and what it should have been.

Capital Times (Madison, WI)

Again proving Woody Allen should stick with Woody Allen movies.

Juicy Cerebellum

Funny in fits and starts before wearing out its welcome in short order.

Some funny moments, but it should have been a triumph

There's a reason Woody Allen usually directs himself.

Examines a marriage under siege.

There's a horrible fascination here that goes beyond Woody's ponytail.

Next time you go shopping leave Woody and Bette at home

It offers you surprisingly little considering the names involved.

Sounds like the perfect high-concept project, right? So how could it go wrong? Who knows? But wrong it went.
