January 5, 2006
What's meant to evoke Shakespeare in Love ends up more often evoking Saved by the Bell.

January 6, 2006
The sticky sweet stuff in the middle traps history's greatest lover and slows the whole affair to a crawl.

Casanova was such a genuinely fascinating person, so tireless, seductive, brilliant, revolutionary and daring, that Hallstrom's Casanova hardly does him justice.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
December 21, 2005
It's worth noting that producing a farce in a way that's funny is a lost art, and director Lasse Hallström hasn't found it.

Gets funny once it enters farce mode. Nothing special by the cast, including Ledger.
Full Review | Original Score: C-
December 13, 2005
Nothing short of a complete stylistic and thematic renovation would improve Hallström's tediously conventional treacle.

January 6, 2006
The whole thing feels too mindlessly cheerful, far too airy to be remembered.
Full Review | Original Score: C+
December 23, 2005
Casanova is a role that should be performed with fire and charm (Johnny Depp would be a bowl of candy here). All Ledger can muster is a slight wink and a grimace.

Don't confuse the 18th-century Venetian setting in Casanova with sophistication.

The movie contains so little sexual content, it seems pre-edited for viewing on airplanes, or perhaps balloon rides like the fake one taken high above Venice by stars Heath Ledger and Sienna Miller.

December 22, 2005
Like an 18th century Wedding Crashers.

December 23, 2005
Hallström crosses the line from irreverence into bigotry by using Pucci as an instrument to attack the Catholic church.

May 4, 2006
A horndog who deserves a swift kick where the Venetian sun don't shine.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
December 25, 2005
Ledger has more chemistry with his co-star and object of affection in Brokeback Mountain than in this movie
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
January 14, 2006
Flaccid.
Full Review | Original Score: C-
December 24, 2005
A romantic comedy that only elicits a few sporadic chuckles; we like Lasse Hallstrom's dramas much better.

May 10, 2006
even I - a product of the American public school system - am able to recognize that much of this film is complete bollix
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
December 31, 2006
There's no edge in Ledger's performance, only a lot of cutesy moments.
Full Review | Original Score: C+
December 22, 2005
It requires imagination of a certain kind to transform the tale of the legendary lover Casanova into a bland romantic comedy.

The movie Casanova, starring Heath Ledger, not only fetters the randy Venetian in political correctness, it condemns him to dwell inside the modern equivalent of a bad Shakespeare play.
