Beguilingly funny.
April 20, 2001
All these years later, the sight of a man walking on the surface of the moon has lost none of its power.
April 20, 2001
Both an entertaining, instructive jaunt down memory lane and also, for the younger generation, a most palatable lesson in modern history.

The Dish also does a nice job of evoking what 1969 was like for people who didn't live in San Francisco, Paris or even Melbourne, Australia.
April 20, 2001
Makes you admire the Australian ability to make a comedy that's sincere rather than crass.

For many moviegoers, that feel-good spirit is going to be hard to resist.

A feel-good movie that re-creates a time and place with gentle humor and a reminder that the Aussies have the right stuff, too.

Shows us that when done with restraint, nostalgia can be fine.

Images of the revolving and tilting dish are sufficient in themselves and do more than make up for the musical goosing on the soundtrack.

A comedy with a heart -- a rare thing in the movies these days.

A warmly human story marked by humor, drama, a little romance and an ending that's preordained (though crises arise), yet also moving.

A smiling human comedy.
April 6, 2001
Warm, wry, endearing.

An amusing, compelling and technologically fascinating tale.
April 5, 2001
Both goofy and touching, so heartfelt and fresh that it draws us in, tickling our funny bones while hitting the solar plexus.
April 5, 2001
The kind of movie some audiences are starved for, a comedy with a human face, warmth and spirit.
March 16, 2001
This is a comedy that rises out of elation, rather than mere wacky gas.
March 16, 2001
If it weren't so pushy about selling itself, The Dish might have been a very special movie.
March 15, 2001
If you hang in there, The Dish will reward you with a heartfelt story about ordinary people rising to meet extraordinary circumstances.
