Gosford Park is a fancy attempt with a lot of style and, the press notes brag, authenticity; but it's a long bore.

Trust me--not high-brow critics--this is atmospheric dribble.

The movie spends all its 137 minutes convincing us how dazzlingly intellectual it is.

Most of the action (and I use the term loosely) is seen from the eyes of the servants, then discussed ad nauseam.

Robert Altman once again [Dr. T] takes us to a place where the people are so annoying that they get in the way of the story

For the usually great Robert Altman, this is a terribly disappointing directing effort.

September 10, 2002
It bored me so much that I wasn't able to watch it straight through; it took me four attempts to get to the closing credits.

An ambitious-but-off-kilter film that desperately searches for but never finds its mark.

The most leaden and uninteresting threads of the film's first half become the most important elements in the murder mystery.

Folks, this film is pretty weak.

I guess you could make a drinking game out of it. Take a swig every time somebody comes on screen and you have no idea who they are or what their purpose in the film is.

An unbearable runtime, waaaaaaaay too many characters and almost zero story.

Gosford Park earns the most dreaded label of all: overrated.

November 22, 2001
Altman's fecklessness pretty much reduces the likes of Derek Jacobi and Alan Bates to bit players who haven't been given any bits.
December 9, 2001
Gooses a creaky genre into new relevance, but it offers no compelling stories and largely wastes the talents of its stellar cast.
December 26, 2001
The performances range from good to great; it's a shame that their efforts don't coalesce into a more resonant result.

If you're a Anglophile, you'll enjoy it. If not, don't bother.
December 28, 2001
Even with some huge names of British stage and film topping the bill, and a sharp dissection of class distinctions, its scope is too encompassing to be completely enjoyable.

Disappointing is too soft a choice of words.
