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

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

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.

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

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
June 10, 2002
Folks, this film is pretty weak.

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

Gosford Park earns the most dreaded label of all: overrated.
January 13, 2002
Proof positive that so many people are just too eager to lavish praise on a project that involves British accents and period costumes.
January 11, 2002
Gosford Park is a fancy attempt with a lot of style and, the press notes brag, authenticity; but it's a long bore.

Disappointing is too soft a choice of words.

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.
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.

If you're a Anglophile, you'll enjoy it. If not, don't bother.
December 27, 2001
An unbearable runtime, waaaaaaaay too many characters and almost zero story.
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.
December 21, 2001
The movie spends all its 137 minutes convincing us how dazzlingly intellectual it is.
December 17, 2001
For the usually great Robert Altman, this is a terribly disappointing directing effort.
