The film has its slow patches, and its fragile illusion probably doesn't stand up to close scrutiny. But, mostly, it dances on a very fine knife's edge between charm and absurdity, an irresistible paean to the art of kiss-kiss.

The movie, written and directed by Jeremy Leven, may not be one for the ages, but it's a pleasant, involving experience that intermixes fairy-tale romance with modern, deadpan comedy.

Though the material is thin, the actors do seem to be getting a kick out of playing off each other.

The film's greatest asset is its glorious acting, with special accolades to Brando, who here delivers yet another magnificent "comeback" performance.

It's a joy to see Brando throwing himself into the spirit of the thing, ardently courting his perplexed wife of 30 years, a ravished Dunaway (they share a lovely five-minute bed scene -- in one, uninterrupted take).

Don Juan is a glorious nut-case, played well by Depp, who mixes a faux nobleman's hauteur with an air of gentleness and longing. The film gets off track only when it makes him too self-aware.

It benefits not only from Mr. Brando's peculiar presence, but also from Johnny Depp, who again proves himself a brilliantly intuitive young actor with strong ties to the Brando legacy.

What a bizarro trio!

If ever there was a movie that is more enjoyable than it has any right to be on the surface, it's this one.

Although flawed in many respects -- it's not as smooth and silky a movie as it could have been -- Don Juan DeMarco nevertheless evokes a romantic mood that tickles and caresses; in a way, it's a movie version of spring fever.

It is hard to think of another actor who could bring off Don Juan De Marco, as Johnny Depp has. With his voice like a caress and eyes that gently preen, he is entirely believable as a consummate seducer, who yet remains sweet and sincere.

Iconoclastic acting by Marlon Brando, Johnny Depp and Faye Dunaway elevate this likable comedy about love, illusion and delusion way above its inconsequential text.

Buoyant and lightweight... except for Brando, who is, in fact, rather heavy.
July 28, 2004
This thin comedy is seductive despite not living up to its potential.

Strong cast don't entirely save this movie from itself.

Affirms romantic love as a candle that must constantly be relit by wonder, devotion and creativity.
