Love's Labour's Lost Reviews

July 6, 2008
A luscious labor of love.
February 9, 2006
An act of double homage to antique artifice.

Maybe Kenneth Branagh should have left the Hollywood musical where he found it, back in the 1930s.

With all the cutesy-pie self-consciousness on display, the fizz goes off the pink champagne awfully quickly.
January 1, 2000
A double travesty -- a triple one, actually, if you consider the quality of the singing and dancing.

It's so eager to please, so caught up in its own sunny energies, so seductive to look at, that what might be your resistance never gets off the ground -- or wants to.

The producer- director- star- screenwriter is an unexpectedly charming musical lead, pleasantly reminiscent of Jimmy Cagney in Yankee Doodle Dandy.

It's so escapist it escapes even from itself.

Worst of all perhaps is Lost's smug air of pleasure at how clever it thinks it's being.

Everybody in Love's Labour's Lost tries so hard to please, they frequently lose track of the matter at hand, to say nothing of the dialogue.

Even though Love's Labour's Lost is, in showbiz terms, a turkey stuffed with chestnuts, you wouldn't trade it for a pot of gold.

Little makes much of an impression.

Love's Labour's Lost hops, bumps and skids along the ground like the flightless creature that it is.
