The movie is a flume ride through the imagination of one of the most creative minds making movies today, and the pleasure curls your toes. Also, be ready to crave some macaroons.

"Budapest" is pretty much an old-fashioned screwball comedy garishly dressed. It's goofy, eccentric and often downright silly. There are many scenes that would have worked in a "Three Stooges" movie.

After feeding on this sweet buffet, sated cinephiles will want to call the front desk to extend their stay.

St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Top Critic

In its own silly, artificial way, it's the first Anderson film to acknowledge the existence of a world outside its own little toy box and to ground its characters' nostalgia in something resembling actual historical reality.

Top Critic

The comedy in The Grand Budapest Hotel is among the broadest yet undertaken by Anderson. But amid the frenzied hubbub, there are intimations of a darker, sadder history unfolding.

The Atlantic
Top Critic

If a movie can be elegantly zany, this wholly imaginative, assured fable of a legendary concierge Gustave H. (Ralph Fiennes), his protégé Zero (Tony Revolori) and the murder of a countess, is it.

What is remarkable is that instead of overcooking this film, the big names add value to a remarkably inventive and wholeheartedly fun, cinema-going experience.

The Grand Budapest Hotel may be Wes Anderson's most finely-crafted film to date, and is one that even the filmmaker's detractors should be able to appreciate.

Hundreds of precious little moments but not much beyond extravagant artifice to sink your teeth into.

Spectrum (St. George, Utah)

The ultimate reason why [it] feels fresh and vibrant [is because] it harkens so far back in movie history to find its inspiration that it proves the old "everything old is new again" maxim is true.

Windy City Times

A beautiful dream that helps us deal with the slings and arrows of our banal real world with a little more pluck.

Anderson and his crew build an impeccable, elaborate world that is opulent and breathtaking, yet somewhat silly.

San Francisco Examiner

The movie may suffer from some of its quick-and-done plotting, but its quality of humor, spectacle, and acting is all top notch.

Film School Rejects

Anderson's film looks good enough to eat; swallowing it is another matter.

Full Review… | May 21, 2014

This wacky screwball comedy, loosely based on stories by Stefan Zweig, has a plot so labyrinthine and frantic it is hardly worth following, except for the fantastic sets and appealing central characters played by Ralph Fiennes and Tony Revolori.

Laramie Movie Scope

An argument could be made that this is Wes Anderson's best film.

The Standard

Anderson's sights are like scenes from a storybook, and the actors move and speak with a clockwork cadence that adds to the sense of comedic orchestration.

American Profile

Watching Wes Anderson quietly and unsentimentally make Zero the hero of The Grand Budapest Hotel should win over some of the director's detractors.

America Magazine

It is a film that maintains its illusion with grace-and ruefully unmasks that illusion every bit as gracefully.

Film Comment Magazine

Fans of director Wes Anderson, here's what you've been waiting for since you saw 'Moonrise Kingdom.' 'The Grand Budapest Hotel' is another comedy with quirky characters and oddball encounters.

Full Review… | April 24, 2014
Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)

A typically witless comedy from Wes Anderson that has about as much to do with Stefan Zweig as it does with WWII and Nazism, the disasters that led to Zweig's suicide in 1942. A total travesty.

Full Review… | April 21, 2014

Runs in the vein of Anderson's more exotic pictures (think 'The Life Aquatic' and 'The Darjeeling Limited').

Columbus Alive

Any single frame qualifies for wall space in a cinematic museum as the players ingeniously apply their emotive elasticity to fit the Anderson universe.

Cinema Signals

Eloquent, offbeat and charming, The Grand Budapest Hotel is Anderson's most accomplished film to date.

Concrete Playground

Fiennes is magnificent, his droll wit and a "keep calm and carry on" delivery occasionally peppered with highlights of profanity and fire. Comedic timing perfection.

Audience Reviews for The Grand Budapest Hotel

Wes Anderson is best known for his unique and vibrant visual style. The Grant Budapest Hotel is his largest, most challenging film to date but something of a change of pace as far as the storytelling goes. It's clearly a Wes Anderson film but the storytelling technique is different, more subtle than his previous work. This film is inspired by the writing of Stefan Zweig and captures the essence of his words perfectly. What you don't see is up to the viewer to interpret, in achieving this Wes Anderson has incorporated the very same feelings we have when reading a great book. No easy feat and I'm not sure anyone has achieved this so perfectly before now, apart from maybe Jean Cocteau. It's safe to say that the whole really is greater than the some of its parts with this one and although it's not my favorite Anderson film, I think it might me his greatest achievement so far.

I probably shouldn't write a review on this, but I will anyway. I watched this on blu ray, and after about 15 minutes started to lose interest and spent most the moving dealing ultraviolet codes on my phone with people from England. Wes Anderson movies generally don't do anything for me(although I did like "Moonrise Kingdom"). His style is very unique, but it's not really my thing. The parts of the movie I payed attention too, I thought were ok, but as a whole I ended up just shrugging my shoulders and going "meh" to. The cast is terrific, and it's very offbeat, but really, you have to be in the right type of mood for it. This isn't something you'll just throw on at 11 am on a Sunday. If I had to bet I would say it'll get award recognition at the end of the year, and I'll probably go back and rewatch then. Maybe I missed out on a truly great movie. But, I doubt it. Check it out, and let me know what you thought. Maybe I'll revisit earlier. Until then, just not for me.

An absolute blast. Director, Wes Anderson's best movie in years, once again he dives us into a enjoyable, imaginative and stylistic world and has us enjoying every minute of it. A hilarious, heartfelt and wickedly loveable adventure with a cant-miss all-star cast who all give great and fun performances. Ralph Fiennes steals the show, he gives an outrageous and joyful performance that shines with the work of Peter Sellers. A grand and brilliant comic performance. Tony Revolori is an absolute delight. Revolori and Fiennes have excellent comic chemistry. Its a gorgeous and wonderfully structured piece of comedy heaven. An old-fashioned screw-ball comedy that's smart, zany and wholly original.

Rambunctious and charming. An epic feast for the senses with a tender and humane core. Ralph Fiennes is simply brilliant.
