A fun, lighthearted, energetic (if insignificant) romp that features fine work from Ledger, Platt and Irons. I was grinning for most of the running time.

Gets funny once it enters farce mode. Nothing special by the cast, including Ledger.

One of those smart pictures that transcends genres, a costume romance inspired by Restoration comedy, French farce and vaudevillian slapstick.

There's no edge in Ledger's performance, only a lot of cutesy moments.

Casanova is just a farce, true, but there's a smugness to the proceedings that leaves a bad aftertaste.

While not quite as irresistibly seductive as its title character, Casanova is the perfect cinematic one-night stand: charming, romantic and awfully easy on the eyes.

even I - a product of the American public school system - am able to recognize that much of this film is complete bollix

A horndog who deserves a swift kick where the Venetian sun don't shine.

Call it an arthouse guilty pleasure if you like, but Casanova is a visually stunning, slyly amusing, and sweetly enjoyable little period-piece of a comedy.

Tom Jones or Shakespeare in Love it's not; pleasing fizz it is.

Surprisingly for a movie about a legendary womaniser there's hardly any sex in it, let alone any nudity. This is a criminal oversight from which the film never really recovers.

The combination of love, lust, music and Venice are the compelling ingredients of Casanova, a swashbuckling tale about matters of the heart and the masks we wear.

Even if Heath Ledger were the only thing worth seeing in this movie, the movie would be well worth seeing. Happily, there are many other things to recommend the picture.

Hallstrom reduces history's most notorious cad to a plot device, forced to jump through so many narrative hoops it's impossible to keep up -- and even harder to care.

... plunders from Shakespeare, panders to feminism and offers puns and one-liners as if the setting were a vaudeville stage, not 1753 Venice.

The whole point is a film that's stylish, witty and romantic -- three things that Casanova most definitely is.
