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.

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.

A pleasant enough diversion if you can get past the 'Borat'-like embarrassment of slapstick moments.

A Good Year is like a promising wine that's a bit new to the bottle. It goes down rough, but there's this marvelous aftertaste on the palate.

Movies with predictable arcs rise or fall on their cinematic moments. Fortunately, there are several in A Good Year.

A Good Year is never less than visually ravishing, its warm, inviting vistas of the French countryside and its unhurried, pleasant vibe putting the viewer in the same frame of mind as Max.

Ridley Scott's obvious love affair with sunny and sensual Provence ultimately makes A Good Year worth watching.

A Good Year builds so much fairy-tale contrivance with such boisterous high spirits that it's exhausting to keep feeling good about feeling good.

A Good Year is a chance for Crowe and his Gladiator director Ridley Scott to slow down and appreciate the good things, like beautiful women, good wine and a country home in France.

A pleasant jaunt through one of the most beautiful places on the planet -- encased in a story that ends up making you feel that all is right with the world.

A shamelessly enjoyable retread, an ode to la belle vie that has been well turned on a factory spindle.

Magically transports us to the sensuous setting of southern France where memory, love, and a grand fondness for place conspire to alter the life of a selfish London trader
