The movie is a pleasure to watch, the craft is voluptuous to regard, but The Curse of the Jade Scorpion lacks the elusive zing of inspiration.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

This movie is supposed to be a lot funnier than it actually is.

Allen's zingers never have much punch, and for a 'screwball comedy,' the pace never achieves an energetic tempo. It's like a plodding church hymn.
January 1, 2002
Here's a film that simply reeks of contractual obligations and a screenplay yanked out of someone's attic.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
August 20, 2001
So limp and weak it practically evaporates on the screen.

There are no twists, no surprises, and no really big laughs to elevate this mediocre movie.

August 24, 2001
It has that same kind of hit-and-miss comedy about it, and Allen is really just going through the motions at this point, just as Groucho often was.

An oddity... stilted.

Allen made funnier films when he thought he was Ingmar Bergman.
Full Review| Original Score: 1/4
August 16, 2001
While the movie does feel like quintessential Allen fare, it just doesn't have his usual panache.

The real curse may actually be sitting through this movie

August 24, 2001
Curse of the Jade Scorpion seems to be little more than him trying to work out whether all those women would still find him attractive without fame, money, talent, or indeed any discernible appealing factor whatsoever.

Diálogos sem graça em um filme sem ritmo. Um dos mais fracos do diretor.
| Original Score: 2/5
August 13, 2001
Little remains after Jade Scorpion is over other than a hazy nostalgic sense for a time that most viewers never knew and that Allen himself was barely old enough to remember.
August 23, 2001
We still prefer his earlier, funnier movies.

The film comes dangerously close to a vanity project and will give ammunition to the filmmaker's detractors.
August 23, 2001
Curse is a vignette overinflated to feature-length, threatening to burst from distension.
