An irascible bully who proves to have a heart of gold, Pacino's character seems manufactured by a computer programmed with box-office grosses.

Scent of a Woman indulgently stretches a modest conceit well past the breaking point.

When all Pacino's demons are bared, they don't add up to the poignant punchline you were set up for.

Volcanic Pacino performance, but the drama drags

By the end of Scent of a Woman, we have arrived at the usual conclusion of the coming-of-age movie, and the usual conclusion of the prep school movie. But rarely have we been taken there with so much intelligence and skill.

As portrayed by Pacino, there's far more to this man that a rancorous outlook on life and a couple of hearty "hoo-ha"s.

It makes the audience feel all the right emotions at the right turns. But ultimately there is less here than meets the eye.

Al Pacino got his ribbing for 'hoo-ahhh!'ing his way through Scent of a Woman, but underneath the scenery chewing, there's a sweet and watchable film to be seen.
| Original Score: 4/5

Corny and heart-warming, with O'Donnell proving almost a match for the master.
