This ode to a bygone style of entertainment is a fitting swan song for Altman.

Poucos cineastas têm ou tiveram a oportunidade de se despedir com tamanha graça e charme de seus fãs... algo que Altman conseguiu com este filme simultaneamente melancólico e alegre.
| Original Score: 5/5

A Prairie Home Companion is surely the bounciest, cheeriest musical I've ever seen on the subject of death and failure.
November 10, 2006
The gentle, wistful quality that floods Robert Altman's latest film is accompanied by a robust sensibility about life's raw elements, a sense of humour and a playfulness.
October 8, 2006
A celebration of show business at its purest and most joyful.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5
October 7, 2006
...essentially a sentimental musical comedy, with the barest rudiments of a story lingering in the background.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10
September 20, 2006
A whimsical, good-natured, humorous, gentle movie about death.

You don't have to be an NPR junkie to appreciate Garrison Keillor and Robert Altman's sweet, gently funny tale about an old-fashioned radio show taking its last bow.

With A Prairie Home Companion, Robert Altman has once again showcased his talent for creating complex, insular worlds for his characters to inhabit.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
July 14, 2006
When Altman lets it be like the radio show, the film couldn't be more heavenly as it becomingly glides along with its sweetly laced nostalgia bromide.

July 14, 2006
It's a testament to Altman and his cast that they can take a script this lousy and get just enough charm out of it to get by.

July 6, 2006
Nostalgic for an idealized version of wry family entertainment that probably never quite existed, it embodies all that is strong in character about the Midwest, or at least what should be.

Robert Altman might be 81 years old, but damn he still knows how to direct a big cast of characters in an entertaining movie.

Simply put, it is a pleasure to watch and a film that I'd gladly see again.

In a world of hype, earthshaking and globe-threatening crises, and annoying celebrity excess, what a contrast, what a respite, what a blessing it is to seek refuge weekly in A Prairie Home Companion!

July 1, 2006
It's all pleasant, mildly amusing, and mostly of interest to fans of the radio show. Others may find it less than riveting.
June 30, 2006
"A Prairie Home Companion" is an incredibly well-made and graceful film, with an unbelievably gifted cast dancing to the Midwestern poetry of Garrison Keillor's script and Robert Altman's direction.

I can't necessarily say that I'd be more inclined to listen to the show [on the radio], but I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it on the big screen.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
June 25, 2006
The movie is a lot like everything Keillor does, reliable and pleasant, but nothing very exciting or even remarkable. It is the cinematic equivalent of a dish of vanilla ice cream.
