Critic Reviews for No Smoking

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (1)

The film fails to entertain in the conventional sense of the term, and often feels like a documentary.

Top Critic

The film swirls about frantically in the effort to entertain, has a terrible Bob Fosse-like dance sequence and generally overstays its welcome.

London Evening Standard

You'll be wishing this weirdly uneven tale came with its own government health warning - if only so you come prepared for an assortment of incongruous musical numbers and performances that couldn't be broader if they tried.

While intended as a comedy, there's not a scintilla of wit to be found here, let alone an honest-to-goodness laugh, and at over two hours, it goes way beyond a joke.

Independent (UK)

A real oddity, shifting gear after the first half-hour from whimsical melodrama to morality-tale-cum-psychodrama.

Quite demented.
