Crowe has a very talented cast at his disposal and, for the most part, uses them wisely.
March 14, 2018
Elizabethtown [is] a tone-deaf, miscast and interminable romantic comedy from the usually beguiling Cameron Crowe.

... it captures the imperfect, specific nature of the human experience in the face of life's saddest occasions.
August 18, 2014
Much maligned but surprisingly entertaining...
March 21, 2011
It's the fashion today for interpersonal dramas to go for bathos and high-stakes emotional conflict as characters cry out their darkest secrets to each other ... but director Cameron Crowe has taken a different tack.
September 1, 2009
Heartfelt and intolerable
April 29, 2009
Though Dunst is a saving grace, it's an awfully clunky, self-indulgent little heap of garbage.
April 19, 2009
Orlando Bloom gives a typically abysmal performance as a man-boy who doesn't know if he's old enough to shave yet.

April 22, 2008
Awash with sentimentality, this meandering tale falls way short of Crowe's usual standards.
April 22, 2008
The hero's nuclear family and kooky rural relatives are so sketchily conceived that none of the intended comedy works, and the balance of the movie is given over to one of Crowe's sugary romances.
April 22, 2008
So curious, and such a disappointment.
May 28, 2007
A meandering mood piece, with no tension, no chemistry, no character development, no plot and no point.

Crowe's capable of much better than this; let's hope he gets back on track with the next one.
September 22, 2006
The performances are solid . . . but it's Kentucky that really steals the show. Crowe paints the eccentricity of the locals with an affectionate brush.
June 24, 2006
The entire enterprise smacks of wish-fulfilment provoked by middle-age male guilt. Uplifting, it most certainly ain't.
April 8, 2006
Embaraosamente infantil, o filme ainda deixa claro que, alm da falta de carisma, Bloom um ator inexpressivo que no possui o menor timing cmico.
February 1, 2006
Crowe is still a master navigator of swampy territory, and any movie that can warm the heart and tickle the funny bone without selling its soul is to be cherished, warts and all.
January 10, 2006
30 seconds in, it lost me. 3 minutes in, it angered me. 13 minutes in, I wanted to start randomly garotting people in the next row. 23 minutes in, I actually tried to.
