I was surprised to find myself strolling along the film's basic plotline, not necessarily bowled over by what I was seeing, but not exactly disliking it either.

Crowe has some very good ideas here, many of them interesting and funny, but the story lacks cohesion, focus, and contains one too many scenes that simply fall flat.

Esta cinta ya la vimos...an antes de entrar a la sala.

If, as the film suggests, true greatness is defined by the willingness to fail, fail big and still stick around afterwards, then consider Elizabethtown a sweet, melancholy paean to that sad truth.

Elizabethtown is rather like an OK mix tape - waves of poignance, whimsy, interrupted by a forced anomaly, & then charm in the next track.

Despite all his best intentions and last-minute editing, Cameron Crowe's free-flow romanticism may have finally gotten the better of him.

Sentimental hogwash

Cameron Crowe's heart is in the right place, but Elizabethtown probably works better as a tribute to his late father than the uplifting romantic comedy to which he aspires.

There's nothing quite like a death in the family to evoke romantic feelings and comedic chuckles in all of us.

Relentlessly lumbering, tone-deaf and even, by the end, a little repellent.

Elizabethtown is aggressive in its need to be loved. The effect of watching it is to witness over two hours of a movie hugging itself.

It's the too-cute contrivances on which the story is built that mean it's always teetering on the verge of collapse.

You can't go home again, but if you do, you'd better discover yourself in the process or risk consignment to the slush pile of cinematic also-rans.
October 22, 2005
It's both strongly involving and a bit too clever for its own good.
October 22, 2005
The magic just isn't there.
October 22, 2005
The film's problems lie with the lack of spark between a wired Dunst and a bland Bloom.

An off-the-map disaster...the New Orleans of 2005 movies.
October 21, 2005
An epic of feel-goodness that can't find the exit.
