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.

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.

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.

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.

Overall, Casanova is silly but amusing.

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

[A] frantic farce that shows off [Ledger's] comic charms to glorious effect.... he's got Casanova's gift of seduction, no question.

In the hands of this fine ensemble cast, the ordinary period piece is turned into a light and breezy bit of entertainment with clever dialog, action, and a touch of romance.

Hallström's latest is fine but unambitious, content with what it is -- an arthouse trifle for the masses.

Casanova is such a sheer delight that every fault gets swept away by the stubborn glee of it all.

...a luscious three-ring circus, with comic twists among the gorgeous Venice locations, leading up to a grand finale...

If you want history, visit a library. See Casanova for the visual feast.

At times ridiculous, at others touching, it's an entertaining cinematic frolic that both men and women can enjoy.

Ledger, if less memorable than Donald Sutherland in Fellini's Casanova or Mastroianni's old rake in La Nuit de Varennes, is a virile, enjoyable addition to the Casanovan collection.

Casanova's tale has been told many times before, but seldom with such light-hearted flair and puckish humor.

Pleasantly undistinguished, this movie rests on a handful of crowd-pleasing plot points about true love, and on a few strong supporting turns: Oliver Platt, who plays an obese Genoan fop, has now saved two movies in as many months.
