While Fading Gigolo has potential, the delivery makes it a wholly frustrating watch.

Cinematic links are made among graying sideburns, autumn leaves, decaying edifices and the grown-up pleasure of a jazz score. Sadly, the film is a leaky vessel.

Fading Gigolo, John Turturro's fifth directorial effort, is a wonderful film.

Tone-deaf, ugly to look at... Fading Gigolo is one man's tribute to himself, decades too late.

In his own films, Woody tends to give the meatiest lines to his costars while he walks off with the wisecracks. Here he finds a most gracious host in Turturro, who happily focuses the spotlight on his prize casting coup.

Turturro and Allen make for a good double act in some strong scenes, but the film as a whole feels light, without too much real substance.

You wouldn't think that a comedy about a Brooklyn florist who becomes a professional gigolo could possibly be dull, especially one that holds out the prospect of a threesome involving Sharon Stone and Sofia Vergara.
August 15, 2014
Though not a Woody Allen picture, it's clear Fading Gigolo is heavily influenced by the work of its supporting actor.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

In today's economy, Gigolo opens a new service option, but the movie's concept works better when played for absurdity.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
June 30, 2014
... an uneven effort that contains some big laughs even as it struggles to find a consistent tone.
June 13, 2014
In synopsis, Fading Gigolo might sound a little trashy; in its execution, it's gentle and sweet.
Full Review | Original Score: 86/100

Fading Gigolo peters out significantly in the buildup to its utterly underwhelming final stretch...

May 30, 2014
There is the odd laugh but they're too few and far between to dispel the slightly creepy sense that, thematically, we're getting a middle-aged male fantasy take on what women want.

Oy and hooray!

With a witty observational script, amusing characters and a jazzy sense of life in New York, this feels like an old-fashioned Woody Allen movie, even though Allen merely costars in it.

If you can get beyond the implausibility of Sharon Stone paying John Turturro to join her in a ménage à trois - and, frankly, I couldn't - then there are lightweight pleasures to be had amid the wry, angsty middle-aged male fantasy.

It would be misleading to suggest that the film falls into the so-bad-it's-good category. But a degree of obscure pleasure can be derived from the wrong-headedness of everything about it.
May 23, 2014
Taken as a whimsical but fiery romantic comedy, it has easily enough charm to get away with its own idiosyncrasies.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
May 23, 2014
The film pokes gentle and sometimes not so gentle fun at religious ultra-orthodoxy, which won't please everyone, but does so with unfailing charm and wit.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

The script rings false from the off.
