Wicker Park Reviews

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.

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

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.

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.

This is all hugely unconvincing, especially since the hero already has a fiancée who seems a more alluring prospect than either of her replacements.

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.

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.

McGuigan seems to have invested more in the youth and glamour of his cast than in a plausible and exacting script.

A limp and exceedingly uninvolving melodrama about -- gasp! -- a series of unfortunate miscommunications.

This is a smart movie, full of astonishing reverses and switchbacks, and it adroitly walks the thin line between too clever by half and not clever enough by three-quarters.

Features a story so convoluted, audience members should be given a bag of breadcrumbs upon entry, so as to leave a trail through the logic.

There are no thrills, psychological or otherwise; the plot twist comes halfway through and then gets beaten to death; and none of the characters take on any depth or texture beyond their obsessions.

Not a movie that inspires you to turn the puzzle over in your head after it's done. More likely, you'll wish you had amnesia.

Once we understand the principle (if not the details) of the plot, Wicker Park works because the actors invest their scenes with what is, under the circumstances, astonishing emotional realism.

A film with more unbelievable coincidences than a Henry Fielding novel, more plot holes than a Swiss cheese and populated with the stock characters of that Hollywood world, that cinematic parallel universe.
