The four main characters are all odd, sad and lonely. No wonder they don't call each other on their cells to straighten things out -- they're all too depressed to dial.

Wicker Park is one of those maddening movies in which the characters do incredibly stupid things simply for the sake of plot contrivance, and everyone's problems would be solved if they simply picked up their cell phones.

A quite extraordinarily boring psychological drama of obsession, impersonation and mistaken identity.

Wicker Park then doubles back on itself, layering flashback upon flashback, but instead of building toward a grand romantic climax, it just gets sillier before exploding into a torrent of unintended laughs.

Both bland and slightly daft.

Total Film

Tortuously twisting in on itself, Wicker Park keeps you guessing as it keeps its central pair apart. But it's scuppered by a plodding obviousness that's underlined by a sledgehammer soundtrack.

Radio Times

Convoluted though this plot may seem, at least the inventive visuals from Gangster No 1 director Paul McGuigan keep you engrossed.

Metro Times (Detroit, MI)

These four characters bounce off each other, slowly revealing motivations and desires and deceptions, providing a mildly entertaining, but ultimately shallow, experience.

Wicker Park is built on such a goofy premise that your average soap-opera scriptwriter would laugh it out of a story meeting.

There are some striking visuals and Hartnett is a magnetic presence.

A convoluted structure makes this story hard work, but like the French original, it engages with its dazzling zig zag of time frames and varied perspective.

Director Paul McGuigan keeps the story racing along, but it smacks of contrived manipulation rather than credibility.

Peter T. Chattaway
Christianity Today

The filmmakers cannot decide what sort of story they want to tell, and as a result, the story they tell isn't really worth the telling.

Combustible Celluloid

McGuigan imbues Wicker Park with a disorienting atmosphere and visual style, using available window panes and deep focus techniques like a split-screen effect to show simultaneous actions and emotions upon which the narrative twists and turns.

Sadly, we never really get the sense that these individuals are at the mercy of their capricious desires, and the absence of that engagement leaves us rather too much time to ponder the plot holes.

Wicker Park frustrates to no end when a smidgen of common sense on anyone's behalf would clear up everything.

A nice example of what happens to a Hitchcock shrine when it's filtered through a slick punk sensibility.

That Wicker Park becomes as engrossing as it does is particularly shocking, given the almost interminable opening hour...

Feel free to take a leisurely stroll out to the lobby for Swedish fish in the middle of Wicker Park. Missing 10 minutes won't affect your ability to follow this babel in the least.
