Tamara Drewe Reviews

Film Comment Magazine

A judicious comic actor, Arterton plays the eponymous Tamara, who throws a small English village into a tizzy when she returns from London to put the family cottage on the market.

The overripe Arterton is put on glorious display, but... there's little joy and not much romp in this cluttered sex farce.

Shared Darkness

Frears' loose-limbed film, while warm and fitfully witty, feels consistently and steadfastly like less than the sum of its parts.

It's only as the narrative adopts an increasingly episodic feel that one's interest begins to wane...

It's a fine diversion filled with silly people following their silly desires.

Movie Talk

Frears' screen version slightly coarsens Simmonds' wit and softens her sharpness, but even if his film manages to be more cartoony than the original cartoons, it remains hugely enjoyable.

Capital Times (Madison, WI)

It doesn't hold together that well, but there are enough moments of wry inspiration to keep the movie more or less afloat.

Starts with great wit and then dissipates into a hazy episodic mess

[Stephen] Frears brings a light touch and a knowing compassion to this pastoral romantic farce...

MovieTime, ABC Radio National

The literary set pieces and the rock legend versus teenage stalkers are great fun. Watch for some excellent Thomas Hardy jokes. Episodic but diverting.

Peter Galvin

The characters are silly, self-centred and mindless in their pursuit of satisfaction and, of course, that's absolutely forgivable since it's all too human. But Frears seems to want to 'say something' about modern sexuality in an age of cyber bullying.

Herald Sun (Australia)

Stephen Frears drapes Tamara Drewe over the screen like a patchwork quilt of half-finished comic sketches and pointless sub-plots.

Jim Schembri
The Age (Australia)

Frears' broader aim is to fully chart the daisy chain of consequences set in train by bad moral behaviour, a theme that has proved a favourite of his and which he prosecutes here with very satisfying results.

The Age (Australia)

There's something about the desperation of Jody that gives the film its most uncomfortable and surprising moments. Otherwise, it's a bit of a stroll down familiar paths.

Sydney Morning Herald

Good-natured as it is, it isn't nearly witty enough to justify the efforts of Frears's gifted cast.

The Vine

As these alternately unpleasant and unfortunate souls churn about in their bucolically-set burlesque, the impression is that director Stephen Frears was out to lunch and instead employed the Scary Movie team to make English Sex Farce Movie.

FILMINK (Australia)

While beautifully shot, this film never seems to work as its characters are unbelievable and it shifts uneasily between comedy and drama.

Simon Miraudo

The film's blustery sexual mishaps and misunderstandings become a bit too cute as the film chugs to its 111th minute; not even a comically violent twist in the final act could resuscitate interest.

Concrete Playground

Spirited, sexy and stacked with laughs - both light and delightfully dark - Tamara Drewe is a must-see modern day period comedy, with smarts.
