Schwartzman is cautious but stubbornly optimistic, while Murray is possessed by the mania of near-despair... They make the best and most disconcerting odd couple that American movies have produced in a long while.

Rushmore is an almost indefinable genre of its own. A comedy with a menacing edge? An ironic romance? Hard to call. Anderson, the director and co-writer, and Wilson, co-writer, have a vision like no one else's.

A quirky, sometimes hilarious and often touching comic fable.

There's an unshakable confidence about this coming-of-age fable that matches that of its central character, Max Fischer.

If happiness is finding something you love to do and doing it forever, one of my somethings might just be watching this oddly uproarious little flick.

There's a danger of overselling Anderson's sweet-hearted, loony little fantasy, but everything -- from the soundtrack of '60s Brit bands with their jangly anthems of angsty love to Robert Yeoman's slightly hyper-real photography -- fits perfectly.

Rushmore offers more than simply a series of high-grade yuks; it's a finely-judged parable on the line between self-delusion and reality.

Anderson fulfills the promise of his inventive Bottle Rocket with this quirky, often hilarious comedy, and Murray gives his most uproarious performance since the groundbreaking Groundhog Day.

Despite cute moments, nothing about Rushmore begs to be liked, which makes this modest comedy all the more satisfying.

A gloriously inventive little comedy about the scholastic and romantic woes of a 15-year-old student at a private academy.
