Uneven thriller isn't for kids. Kidman's great.
August 25, 2009
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.

Simple but effective.

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.

Nicole Kidman chain smokes, speaks Russian, and shows her [rear end] - sign me up!

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.

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

There's a sweet story that emerges from some really horrible circumstances, and in my opinion it was pretty well written.

A deviant topical comedy which is funny from start to finish.

La cinta no se parece a nada que hayan visto, pues es una mezcla extraa de humor negro con autntico drama y aderezo romntico.
