Tamara Drewe Reviews

Urban Cinefile

The great and talented Stephen Frears has somehow taken on a project that isn't really worthy of him

Part of the problem is the fact that apart from Evans' Andy, we really don't like the characters

Tamara Drewe's general lack of cheesiness manages to make it a fun summer film that doesn't take itself too seriously.

...looks like the pilot for a television series stretched to almost two hours and provided with a healthy cinematography budget, but not much in the way of a script.

"Tamara Drewe" is a wickedly smart hybrid of a literary roundelay and a postfeminist manifesto.

Cleveland Plain Dealer

A bland bed-hopping comedy that never finds its narrative focus.

Philip Martin
Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

meandering, slack-key movie based on a graphic novel ... an enjoyably forgettable experience that glides over you like a maddeningly inane Europop song.

Christopher Lloyd
Sarasota Herald-Tribune

It succeeds as a comedy of manners and observation, though it errs in presenting us with a wide array of interesting characters, and then selecting the least compelling among them to drive the story.

Orlando Weekly

A better Woody Allen movie than Allen's most recent one, Tamara Drewe is a farce in line (if not on par) with Shakespeare's own, as daffy adults fall in and out of love and lust in a bucolic English hamlet.

Tampa Bay Times

The cast is delightful, although Arterton's role is defined by seductive smiles and the rise of her cut-off shorts. Allam and Cooper are standouts, creating hormonally despicable characters getting more of Tamara's attention than they deserve.

Despite her cheeky introduction in short-shorts that might have embarrassed Catherine Bach, Tamara proves to be the most tedious character in her own movie...

Always engaging, if disjointed, and dotted with pleasant surprises.

Diverting but not terribly compelling.

Has the disjointed, episodic feel of a serialized story condensed into a feature film.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

Observed with keen wit and a wicked sense of humor that's never utterly cruel, since it's impossible not to conclude that Frears can't help but like these absurd characters.

There's a whiff of desperation behind the comic romp Tamara Drewe that gives it some unexpected sting.

This screen adaptation by director Stephen Frears successfully re-creates the strip's pastoral tone and cheeky humor.

Austin Chronicle

Tamara Drewe's revolving affairs may be the film's raison d'Ítre, but it plays like kids' stuff compared to their adult romancing -- frumpy and halting and more true to life than the rest of the film's forced fancifulness.
