Critic Reviews for Boogie Woogie

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (10) | Fresh (8) | Rotten (16)

  • Duncan Ward's muddled satire about the London art world has a strong cast mugging for all their worth.

    February 1, 2011 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Boogie Woogie delivers little more than a lukewarm spoof.

    July 6, 2010 | Full Review…
  • [The film's characters] are so repellent that almost everyone outside the movie's fetid hothouse will want to flee to fresher air.

    April 23, 2010 | Rating: 2/5
  • Goes over the top now and then, but overall it's a lot of nasty fun.

    April 23, 2010 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • The cast of superficial backstabbers, casual philanderers, and gibberish-spouting phonies has no original characters, but at least a few of the actors attack their roles with a zest that offsets their two-dimensionality.

    April 22, 2010 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
  • The plodding direction, pedestrian cinematography and second-rate script prevent a good cast doing more than help the story along.

Audience Reviews for Boogie Woogie

  • Jan 19, 2013
    Disposible comedy supposedly about the upper echelons of the art world aesthetic, where what everyone really wants is the most expensive painting, and maybe to sleep with the wife of whoever owns it, or her close friend, or her dog walker. It's like a oversimplification of joke: everything's lost. Needs remodeling.

    In "Boogie Woogie," Mrs. Rhinegold(Joanna Lumley) is trying to sell off their priceless art collection to pay mounting debts, even over her husband's(Christopher Lee) strenuous objections. Regardless, Art Spindle(Danny Huston, somehow more unctuous than usual) has a buyer in the persons of Jean(Gillian Anderson) and Bob Maclestone(Stellan Skarsgard), avid art collectors. In other news, Art's assistant Beth(Heather Graham) is looking to strike out on her own while shopping for a new pair of breasts. To its credit, "Boogie Woogie" does not take the low road with yet another facile send up of the art world. In fact, it has a couple of things to say about turning yourself into a work of art and the soullessness of selling art works. Sadly, that same lack of emotion spills over to the movie in general, making it a slow motion wreck where a surfeit of barely related characters collide into each other without creating any sparks. Even an excellent cast(Charlotte Rampling is around here somewhere) needs something to work with. Tomorrow, there will be a lesson on how to properly utilize an excellent cast in a movie, so take notes. There will be a quiz later.

    Wow, talk about a movie with an incurable identity crisis. I have no idea what tone director Duncan Ward wanted to take, it seems he thought he'd try them all in case something stuck. Nothing did, unless 'fail' is a genre.

    Average. It started out very bad - over the top hammy acting, very unconvincing and just all round bad. Thankfully it does pick up a little, and it has a good cast including Amanda Seyfried, Heather Graham, Gillian Anderson and Alan Cumming. Can't say I loved it,and they could all do much better than this movie, but it was worth at least one watch. I think.... To be honest, I am not sure what they were trying to do with this. Was it meant to be funny or clever or maybe just titilating.
