March 16, 2006
Gaudi Afternoon is mostly dream, part nightmare, and part morality play surrounding the concept of mothering a young girl.

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.

An emotionally and intellectually subtle work.
March 22, 2003
With a lovably quirky script, lovely production values and delightful performances by a strong cast, Gaudi Afternoon is Seidelman's best film yet.
March 21, 2003
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.
March 20, 2003
What should be a souffl of gender-bending mischief is more like a bowl of oatmeal.
March 20, 2003
The offbeat cast and gorgeous Barcelona locations can't quite make up for the thinness of the mystery and forced quirkiness of the characters and their tangled relationships.
March 20, 2003
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.
March 18, 2003
The trumped-up alley-to-plaza intrigue could use more smoke and less mirrors.
March 9, 2003
A waste of talent.

Although the ending briefly dips into some silly sentimentality, the film as a whole is liberated by Cassandra's sardonic charm and a madcap exploration of the mother-daughter nexus.
January 24, 2003
It's a frothy romp played for the fun of it, and when the silliness dies down the pic can easily be forgotten.
