It's a film from which you'd expect the moon, the stars and the sun. What with an actor like Crowe and a director like Scott. Disappointingly, the talented duo gives you the most wishy-washy film of the year.

It's not so much A Good Year as A Good Yawn (if not A Full-on Nap).

Predictable but pleasant movie for teens and up.

Russell Crowe brings to bear his now-familiar acting tics in a not-so-tender romance by director Ridley Scott.

[Russel Crowe's] supply of quips and pratfalls is inexhaustible, even when he's trapped at the bottom of a swimming pool surrounded by peat and dry leaves. Alas, he escapes.

Under the Tuscan Sun for men

Forget that this is a film about a man's epiphany about what's important in life, and enjoy it for its lighthearted moments, slapstick comedy, but most of all its divine locations.

Crowe has located his funnybone again in a conventional but engaging romantic comedy ...

This Gallic tourist-porn feels as stale as yesterday's baguette.

'Look Homeward, Gladiator' hints at new dimensions of warmth and heart in Russell Crowe and Ridley Scott. They're not there yet, but they're headed in the right direction.

A Good Year is, structurally, nothing more than a rickety assembly of the creakiest cinematic clichés.

It's so goddamned cute you almost want to puke, but you don't. This is the most charming movie of the year, and it comes within an inch of being too sweet to stand, but it doesn't get there.

Does not translate into a good film.

The course A Good Year takes feels like it's on rails: there's only one possible destination and only one way to get there.
November 15, 2006
Scott's film is like a reproduction of things he's seen in romantic comedies over the years with no idea why they're there.

Alternately, you could do your laundry, which would be just as exciting and possibly more dramatic.
November 14, 2006
A leaden attempt at an upbeat romp from the downcast, feel-bad tag team of actor Russell Crowe and director Ridley Scott, the movie is like hearing a knock-knock joke told by a mortician.

They [director Ridley Scott and star Russell Crowe] may have had a good time making the film, but I can't say I did while watching it.
