December 28, 2010
Satire, Hollywood in-jokes won't appeal to kids.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
October 30, 2009
Like the character he plays here, Albert Brooks needed someone or something to re-inspire him while working on this plodding comedy.
August 20, 2009
Albert Brooks' mildly amusing satire about the inner workings of Hollywood benefits from Sharon Stone's droll and sexy performance, but as a comedy it's too familiar and not funny enough.

Brooks' gentle satire of Hollywood.

March 7, 2002
In its story of a terrible filmmaker, it almost manages to explain the madness behind why Brooks still gets to crank out excrement like this.

In The Muse, Brooks makes a mistake he's never made before: he starts with a situation comedy, then never moves beyond the situation.

January 1, 2000
The screenplay, despite containing a number of droll one-liners and a pair of deliciously funny scenes, possesses a turgid, directionless feel.

More stupefying than entertaining.

Smart, funny -- and edgy.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
January 1, 2000
It's imaginative enough to provide a reliable, pleasurable stream of chuckles and midsized laughs.
January 1, 2000
What's most surprising about The Muse is how derivative, cliche-ridden and old-hat it is.
January 1, 2000
An embarrassment.
Full Review | Original Score: C-
January 1, 2000
Though consistently fun in an Albert Brooks kind of way, this film drags its feet with the business of building to a climax.

I thought Brooks mailed this script in.

January 1, 2000
The Muse is as consistently funny as it is smartly tooled.
January 1, 2000
The Muse is an underdeveloped, lackluster effort, despite a sparkling comic turn by Sharon Stone.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10
January 1, 2000
A hit-and-miss affair, banking a bit too much on its one joke premise.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
January 1, 2000
There are bits in this movie that are so bright, so amusing and so truly, madly, deeply tied to a life most of us will never know, that you can't help watching the film with fascination.
