January 1, 2000
There are lots of punchy lines, but the one-joke movie doesn't have all that much to say.
January 1, 2000
Any Albert Brooks fan will enjoy his latest.
| Original Score: 4/5
January 1, 2000
It's good for some sterling one-liners and a generous handful of sparkling scenes, but after a strong, peppery start, the movie collapses into bland mush for want of anything interesting to say.

The Muse is to be treasured as a funny man's funniest film to date.
January 1, 2000
The Muse might have worked better if it didn't presume that we're all as interested in the machinations of Hollywood as Brooks is.

January 1, 2000
The Muse is sketch-comedy thin and features an overdone comic performance from Sharon Stone, making it Brooks' least satisfying film in quite a while.
January 1, 2000
A dark and often unattractive movie.
January 1, 2000
Typically fresh and idiosyncratic in the writing but often flat directorially.
January 1, 2000
The Muse is amusing, pleasant and generally enjoyable, which would be enough for most filmmakers, but from someone of Albert Brooks' caliber, we have a right to expect more.

January 1, 2000
There's enough good fun in this yarn to make us believe that the highly talented Brooks has spent most of his creative time in the presence of his muse.

January 1, 2000
A writer and comic who's the best when he's the nastiest, Brooks creates for himself a character that's way too accommodating and sweet.

The Muse is not the perfect Albert Brooks film, but it is close.

January 1, 2000
Too quirky to satisfy the undemanding and too flabby to satisfy people who have appreciated the star-director's previous work.
January 1, 2000
When cameos are the highlight of your movie, your movie needs a little more work.
January 1, 2000
Quietly, consistently amusing.
