Critic Reviews for Hammersmith Is Out

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (2) | Rotten (5)

  • Hammersmith Is Out is another of those heavy-handed "the criminally insane are running the world" parables that almost comes off -- but not quite, in spite of Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton giving their best performances of recent years

    January 1, 2020 | Full Review…
  • What is, apparently, an exercise in spoofery on the part of Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton and the even more energetic Peter Ustinov, starts as a variation on the Faust legend but almost immediately turns into a belabored antic.

  • Both Bridges and Miss Taylor display a certain vulgar, ratty charm that is often funny.

    May 9, 2005 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Hammersmith is Out is one of the year's best comedies. It is also, while it's at it, one of the year's best satires, but it doesn't lay the satire on very heavily.

    October 23, 2004 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Dull, trifling, tasteless, self-consciously cute - these barely begin to describe Hammersmith's terminal weaknesses.

    January 7, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Inept Taylor-Burton vehicle is one more variation on the Faust legend, with Burton as a lunatic consigned to Ustinov's asylum.
