Though Rules Don't Apply is undeniably Beatty's show, the true breakout is lead Alden Ehrenreich.

Rules Don't Apply is a movie that's uneven in its construction but is able to coast by due to three solid performances from its cast.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
September 13, 2018
All in all, Rules Don't Apply is ... uneven. The film suffers from trying to do too much. Had it been either a romance ... character study, the movie could have been stellar.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
August 30, 2018
Has all the potential to be an exceptional romantic drama especially from the performances by the leads if it wasn't hampered with frantic pacing and incredibly choppy editing.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
August 26, 2018
In a season filled with heart-wrenching, disturbing, and depressing films (many of them excellent, mind you), Rules Don't Apply is a fun and welcome escape.

No one could rein in Hughes, and no one reigns in "Rules Don't Apply." It's an intriguing but saggy excursion through Old Hollywood via the eyes of an underdeveloped character.
August 22, 2018
The kids are all right, but with a hammier-than-thou Beatty around no-one else gets much of a look-in.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
December 28, 2017
[Rules Don't Apply] is an entertaining and surprisingly low-key portrait of excess.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
December 27, 2017
Warren Beatty's comeback movie is a sometimes bizarre, sometimes winning film about multi-hyphenate billionaire Howard Hughes (Beatty) in 1959 and 1964...
December 20, 2017
Ehrenreich and Collins are both charming but framkly they're amuse-bouches for Beatty's bone-in prime rib.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10
December 6, 2017
Warren Beatty orchestrates an odd declaration of love of cinema. [Full review in Spanish]

November 19, 2017
Everything...is undercooked, half-thought and damn near incomprehensible.

Warren Beatty uses his return to the cinema scene in his enactment of Howard Hughes.

October 23, 2017
Director Warren Beatty tries to do too much in this nostalgic drama and the plot suffers because of it.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
October 11, 2017
It's just too odd -- and indeed long -- for its own good.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
October 9, 2017
... the sum total is a messy, slightly out of focus portrait of a larger than life man.
September 19, 2017
... a little gem from an actor-writer-filmmaker who hasn't lost anything despite not having made a film in almost 20 years.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
August 24, 2017
As Beatty's fable unfolds, it becomes a winning period piece anchored by the super-charismatic [Lily] Collins and [Alden] Ehrenreich.
May 10, 2017
Given his famously protracted deliberations, it is almost certainly the last film we will ever get from Beatty the auteur. It's a nice, warm, genial and embraceable farewell.
