Scenes from a Mall Reviews

June 20, 2015
...a thin premise that's employed to progressively lackluster effect by filmmaker Paul Mazursky...
March 23, 2009
Paul Mazursky's 14th film as director is a cozy, insular middle-aged marital comedy that's about as deep and rewarding as a day of mall-cruising.

There are moments here and there, but it's mostly ordinary, unimaginative writing. Midler and Allen deserve better.
March 23, 2009
Mazursky has returned with a vengeance to his special universe where the upper middle class is the only thing that exists, and this time he has absolutely nothing to say about it.
June 24, 2006
Allen's admittedly funny lines get lost in the mess, and Midler, in relatively restrained mode, fades away altogether.

Sorta funny, but the gap yawns between what it is and what it should have been.

A close-up look at a couple's painful catharsis so well wedded to marital discord it's like going through a divorce with yourself.

It offers you surprisingly little considering the names involved.

Sounds like the perfect high-concept project, right? So how could it go wrong? Who knows? But wrong it went.

When a movie seems overflowing with interesting, colorful details, that is often a sign of desperation -- a way of saying, if the picture's no good, get a gaudier frame.
