Critic Reviews for Blue Jasmine

All Critics (199) | Top Critics (49)

Lives constructed on pretense can only stand for so long. Watching them collapse is appalling but undeniably entertaining.

Top Critic

A sharply observed, post-economic crash comedy-drama that boasts a formidable performance by Cate Blanchett and addresses such pertinent real-world concerns as class, gender and corporate criminality in urban America.

Blue Jasmine could've been more comedic, but Blanchett's heavy performance really gave this story a new life on its own.

The Young Folks

There's a reason why Woody Allen's screenplays have been nominated for 15 Academy Awards (R). Comic genius, dramatic wit, sharp observation, great characters. With Blue Jasmine, he has taken effete snobbery to glorious heights.

Andrew Dice Clay holding his own against Cate Blanchett? Now I've seen it all.

The Improper Bostonian

Blanchett is impressive as a woman constantly teetering on the edge of collapse; there's a perpetual sense something tragic simmers beneath her constructed facade.

Audience Reviews for Blue Jasmine

Woody Allen's movies have never appealed to me, as they have always come across as a tiny bit artsy and often unsatisfactory.
For me it is Blanchett that makes this depressingly sad movie enjoyable. Blanchett is phenomenal and although her ditsy character should make you want to hate her, you can't help but feel sorry for her and feel she is slightly misunderstood!
The mental instability of the character is brilliantly portrayed by the exceptionally talented Blanchett however that's where the good points stop! Blanchett is amazing and although it is an interesting drama you can't help but feel so unsatisfied and angry about the ending. Yes it pretty much ends the way it started and yes its good that the movie didn't end with a typical happy hollywood spin but it would have been nice for some happiness in this dark and depressingly beautiful drama. There really is no light at the end of this dark tunnel !

Surprisingly good drama from Woody Allen about post-traumatic life that make an ex-housewife struggle to pick up the pieces about the life that she had before.. A remarkably strong performance from Cate Blanchett, as she already an Oscar winner before, no doubt that she portraying the leading role in this movie really well.. Truly deserve all the credit and the awards awarded to her.. While Sally Hawkins' performance in this movie is some scene-stealer and for me she did it..

Couldn't ignore a Woody Allen flick that's applauded this much. Apparently, to each, their own. The characters felt relatively realistic, thanks to the performances, but that wasn't enough. The story could have used some humor than so much sarcasm. After a point, it gets repetitive and begins to irritate. Too low on story and entertainment to be rated more than 0.5/5.
