  • You can't say "Bayou Caviar" doesn't have twists, but it has the wrong ones.

  • [Gooding Jr.] had some nifty New Orleans locations and a cast that includes Richard Dreyfuss, Famke Janssen and Katharine McPhee - as well as himself. But the movie's still a mess.

    Oct 4, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Despite seamy, well-chosen locations, Mr. Gooding is way too heavy-handed in his scoring and visual choices. But the movie deserves credit for its untempered nastiness.

  • Bayou Caviar might sound like some sort of sublime South Louisiana delicacy, but it's really more like gas-station sushi. That is, it beats starvation -- but only just.

  • Cuba Gooding Jr.'s directing debut is overlong and overly complicated -- messy -- but well-cast and occasionally entertaining.
