The music is eloquently timeless. The lyrics unparalleled, even illuminating. Yes, it's delightful, it's delicious, it's delectable...it's De-Lovely.

More imagination than inquiry, this cautiously reverential tale reaches for aesthetic pleasure and emotion over insight.

If you ignore the plot and just approach the flick as nothing more than a 21st century update of a Busby Berkeley-style musical, you will not be disappointed.

Performances crackling with an enthusiasm that indicates how much Porter's work continues to be loved and respected.

Elegante e esteticamente admirável, este musical é um pouco mais longo do que deveria, mas as belas canções e os complexos planos concebidos por Winker acabam compensando.

The production numbers recap Porter's life using his own music. The concept is nothing if not original but it's the execution that causes the greatest strife.

An intelligent behind-the-scenes look at enduring love and enduring music.

De-Lovely, de-Nearly delectable

Kline and Judd are both good, but Cole Porter seems to have more sophistication than depth.

The movie does offer insight into a man whose lyrics now are underscored with the deeper, hidden rhythms of truth.

De-senfrenada y de-lirante, de-liciosa en algunos momentos.

A handsome musical about the most ambiguous of American composers.

De-Lovely is a film I can imagine the Porters enjoying, and also one that might occasionally make them uncomfortable. It isn't great cinema, but it's deft popular art.

The only way to kill Cole Porter is to mess with his music. And that's exactly what Producer/Director Irwin Winkler does in De-Lovely.
September 14, 2004
There are enough glorious songs, energetically warbled by a host of modern pop stars, to keep us enthralled.
August 19, 2004
De-Lovely features a first-rate performance that ought to earn Kevin Kline an Oscar nomination.

Is De-Lovely a failure? In many ways, yes. But it's the kind of failure I'd rather see than I would many more successful films.

Kline/Judd are de-lectable and the movie is de-vine.
