All Critics (18) | Top Critics (4)

A major disappointment.

August 16, 2017 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

Though sometimes it gets too arch, this Las Vegas fairy tale succeeds, thanks to an inspired ending.

June 5, 2018 | Full Review…

A muddle from beginning to end. And Tarantino in small doses as an actor is fine. He's in this one much too much.

September 17, 2005 | Rating: 1/5

Pointless and utterly baffling.

January 13, 2004 | Rating: 0/4 | Full Review…

Tarantino as an actor... Too bad he didn't write it. The script makes no sense.

July 22, 2003 | Rating: 0/5

Wildly uneven film that proves, if nothing else, Quentin Tarantino can't act.
