Uneven thriller isn't for kids. Kidman's great.

There are enough well layered performances in director/co-writer Jez Butterworth's "Birthday Girl" to all but compensate for the film's inept noir flirtations between romantic farce and theft thriller.

Although "Birthday Girl" is labeled a romantic comedy, it's not wildly funny or romantic.

O filme tenta ser comédia romântica, suspense erótico, thriller e assim por diante. A única que se salva é Kidman, belíssima como sempre e com um sotaque russo sedutor.

Butterworth has an effective directorial shorthand and the film is full of small, unobtrusive touches that smartly enhance the scenes. Kidman, of course, is magnetic; her absorbing performance makes this Birthday party one worth attending.

It still manages to slide by, but barely, and only on the strength of its two leads.

Works for the most part as an interesting and entertaining experiment in genre bending and tone.

It may not make a lasting impression, but at the same time you may find its first half teasingly, tantalizingly good fun and its second half, well, who knows.

The gift here is as delicious as its wrapping.

... unpretentious and deliberately small-scale, Birthday Girl is a delightful movie that doesn't strive to be anything other than escapist fun

Nicole Kidman breaks her winning streak with this often-boring British flick.

There's a sweet story that emerges from some really horrible circumstances, and in my opinion it was pretty well written.
June 11, 2002
A deviant topical comedy which is funny from start to finish.
