A slice of old-school Noir. Arquette makes for a terrific femme fatale.
| Original Score: 3/5
January 1, 2000
Once the thud of its wooden dialogue has settled into a deadly mechanical clomp -- about 10 minutes into the film -- you wonder why this risible movie didn't go straight to video.

Goodbye Lover is not so much a story as some kind of a board game, with too many pieces and not enough rules.

A neo-noir that puts the 'lack' in black comedy!

January 1, 2000
The shoddy, decidedly unglamorous photography makes everything look cheap and the principals' complexions veritable roadmaps of creases and wrinkles.
January 1, 2000
The film rocks with high-caliber performances especially by Ellen DeGeneres!

January 1, 2000
It carefully sets up a powder keg of conflicting relationships and affairs but instead of building the natural tension, it opts for a series of gotcha's.
January 1, 2000
The movie becomes so convoluted in its wry-noir scheme and narrative twisteroos, it turns banal and wearisome.
January 1, 2000
If you like your murder tales full of plot twists and turns, and you don't get thrown off by the performances, then this one is as twisty as a snake.
January 1, 2000
It's all directed with a eye to coarse, tongue in cheek caricature that's an uncomfortable fit with the material and undermines the lowbrow fun.

A high-quality bad movie!

very funny, very dark comedy/mystery
January 1, 2000
A poorly-paced bland crime drama that has all the twists and turns of a 'Bewitched' episode.

January 1, 2000
A deliciously unpredictable thriller with a dark, very offbeat sense of humor.

"Goodbye Lover" is a gum-chewing mess. And that's WAY before Ellen DeGeneres shows up.
