Movie Info

A dozen people and their myriad problems descend upon a quiet Los Angeles park at lunch hour. April (Dagney Kerr) comes to commit suicide but can't quite get it right. Peggy (Ricki Lake) and her best friend, Claire (Cheri Oteri), seek to humiliate Dennis (William Baldwin), Peggy's philandering husband, while co-workers Nathan (Trent Ford) and Babar (Maulik Pancholy) are determined to convince their female colleagues that they do indeed enjoy eating lunch in the nude.

Critic Reviews for Park

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (7)

  • There are plenty of laughs in the outrageous predicaments and the actors are obviously having a ball.

    November 16, 2007 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • None of the characters seems particularly believable, except Lake's; she brings some feeling to a thin role. And the campy, "outrageous" comedy is pretty thin, too.

    November 16, 2007 | Rating: 1.5/4
  • Suicide, infidelity, spousal abuse and arrested development are the building blocks of Park a wearisome comedy.

    November 16, 2007 | Rating: 1.5/5
  • Man, have we gone downhill since Short Cuts.

    November 16, 2007 | Rating: .5/4 | Full Review…
  • It's all harmlessly naughty at the outset, but when it comes to juggling all those characters and their intersecting scenarios, Voelker lacks the dexterity of, say, Robert Altman.

    November 9, 2007
  • A flotilla of L.A. residents gathers in an unlandscaped recreation area in Baldwin Hills to canoodle, attempt suicide, plot revenge and dig into one another's psyches in writer-director Kurt Voelker's high-spirited if slight comedy, Park.

  • There's very little cohesion among the separate storylines and aside from some nice performances, it all seems rather pointless.

    November 16, 2007 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • If Park aspired to any real insights or to any ambition beyond the routine, its hysterics would be worth sitting through.

Audience Reviews for Park

  • Oct 08, 2008
    A little bit of fluff. A cliched look at relationships and self discovery played out during a long lunch hour at a secluded park overlooking Los Angeles. A lawyer and his paramour are discovered by his wife and her friend. A dog groomer discovers the raving beauty he works beside is not for him, but the troubled young woman who tries unsucessfully to commit suicide, just might be. And four twenty-somethings bare their souls and a little bit more to each other and deeply held secrets are revealed. Not exactly Oscar worthy, but mildly entertaining. A bit too predictable, a little hard to swallow, and maybe a little too tame. Still, I watched the whole thing, so there must have been something there. I just can't remember what.

    The suicidal couple was interesting, but all the other characters were pretty stupid and I could have cared less if they all spontaneously combusted. Actually that would have been awesome.
