Critic Reviews for Gaudi Afternoon
A kooky, madcap adventure set in Barcelona devolves into a sort of sub -sub-Almodovar picture. Stay for the opening credits, then leave.
For a while, the sheer exoticism of the characters and the setting provides a certain amount of interest, but the film's farcical situations, mostly involving the sexual orientation of its characters, ultimately prove tiresome.
A mildly entertaining gender-bender comedy set in Barcelona, never quite lives up to its excellent cast or the onetime promise of director Susan Seidelman.
What should be a soufflé of gender-bending mischief is more like a bowl of oatmeal.
Even the crackpot architectural genius of Antonio Gaudi cannot elevate this silly little farce of sexual confusion from director Susan Seidelman and writer James Myhre.
Audience Reviews for Gaudi Afternoon
I wouldn't exactly consider this a shining moment for Judy Davis. It's a great cast...with Marcia Gay Harden as a transgendered individual even. Bet you never thought you'd get the chance to see her peeing while standing, eh? But, it's merely an 'ok' film. Nothing to rush out and grab but better than getting up off the couch and cleaning the bathroom if you happen upon it.
Marcia Gay Harden is awesome in this movie by director Susan Seidlman. I had never heard of this comedy so I gave it a try. Funny mystery that involves transexual-lesbian couple who are fighting over their daughter. Judy Davis plays the translator in this comedy-mystery that has many twists and turns. Juliette Lewis and Lilli Taylor bring this feature a B+.
