Film Threat

The story had no guts and cheated the audience with such insanely coincidental plot twists that made me to fight to stay in my seat.

Premiere Magazine

What begins as a pleasantly utilitarian thriller gradually decays into a mediocre suspense drama and ends as an irritatingly feeble love story called Wicker Park...

Worcester Telegram & Gazette

...a shallow, inept story of romantic miscues, with enough loose ends to make you wonder if anyone was even paying attention during the filming.

They have translated a foreign film to an American friendly version in a way that neither diminishes nor excessively departs from the original.

This film is genuinely interested in getting us inside the heads of its three leads (Matthew, Alex, and Lisa). It wants us to understand, although not necessarily sympathize with, all three of them.

Josh Hartnett wanders around Wicker Park like he's been doped up with a low-dose horse tranquilizer, looking mildly bewildered...

Falls apart because of the trivial narrative.

Sean the Movie Guy

a melancholy mess of a movie where attractive people act like idiots for a few hours, all the while performing as if they were in a murder mystery or a ghost story.

Hartnett dodged bombs in "Pearl Harbor", now he stars in the biggest bomb of his career.

A powerfully compelling film that gains most of its intrigue via the artifice of purposefully withholding information from the moviegoer.

Austin Chronicle

This American version can't hold a candle to its French counterpart, which was deeply, eerily resonant where this is only frustrating, a Rubik's Cube, minus its colorful signage.

It's no coincidence that Wicker Park doesn't work.

...a romantic thriller devoid of romance, but it does thrill with the anticipation of how over the top the filmmakers' next move will be.

Film Journal International

It seems to take a confused eternity to get started, but once director Paul McGuigan's m.o. finally becomes apparent, the thing takes on a dogged kind of interest.

Takes plenty of twists and turns, each so implausible and silly that you have no interest whatsoever in finding out what the next one will be.

While the cast is beautiful to look at, by the time the movie reveals what's really going on, you'll be struck with more boredom than shock.

Not the customary disposable cinematic fare released on the always-slow Labor Day weekend, but an intriguing, original film of ideas and human feeling.

What could have been a high-art thriller ends up to be a low-brow movie of the week.

Relies on too many coincidences and confusing flashbacks.
