February 2, 2001
Pretentious, indulgent, tiresome exercise in star-strutting and seediness.
February 2, 2001
There may not be anyone else who is as capable of romanticizing bummed-out good taste as Mr. Wenders.

Pretentious and trite in a way that you can get away with in a rock song or a music video, but that becomes almost unbearably irritating in a full-length feature.
February 2, 2001
If you're a Wenders admirer and can give yourself over to his gorgeous verging-on-surreal vision, you can come away deeply moved.

February 2, 2001
The most interesting thing I've ever seen [Mel Gibson] do.
February 2, 2001
Take the last exit off the highway to art movie hell, and you'll probably have to stay at The Million Dollar Hotel.
February 2, 2001
Poetic nonsense.
February 1, 2001
A plodding, self-indulgent exercise in pomposity over substance.
February 1, 2001
Longtime Wenders fans will undoubtedly welcome the affront to conventional storytelling while others, attracted by the marquee value of Mel Gibson, are more likely to leave the theatre scratching their heads.
February 1, 2001
Boring waste of celluloid.
February 1, 2001
Too long, the willful eccentricity is grating and the hackneyed moral -- real life is better than TV -- is so silly it's best taken ironically.

February 1, 2001
Even alternative cinema god, Wenders, and rock's last great savior, Bono, are doing little more than recycling the material and cardboard people that Hollywood machinery has assigned as the harmless, loveable freaks.
February 1, 2001
Despite its ramshackle structure, The Million Dollar Hotel is festooned with enough odd trappings to keep it enjoyable.
January 31, 2001
Something of a monstrosity -- liquored self-indulgence taken to its own astral plane.
January 26, 2001
Vacuous, tedious, pretentious and featuring some uniformly atrocious acting.
January 25, 2001
Listening to these people prattle on and watching the St. Vitus-Dance antics of Jeremy Davies in the role of Tom-Tom is an exericise in tedium.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10
January 16, 2001
An absorbing picture of thwarted aspirations and self-destructive behaviour.
January 16, 2001
We have to spend time with a plethora of wretched cretins, who get to be annoying very quickly.
| Original Score: 4/10
January 16, 2001
A fascinating failure.
January 16, 2001
Ultimately falls flat in most categories except that of arty pretension.
