Speechless Reviews

August 12, 2009
Utterly devoid of subtlety and grace, Speechless is a desperate, thrown-together hodgepodge that tries to glide by on the supposedly surefire chemistry of the pairing of Davis and Keaton.
August 12, 2009
The rivalry never sparks, the pace flags and it seems pointless to enter donkeys in a race designed for thoroughbreds.
March 26, 2009
Never achieves the madcap hilarity of the '40s romantic comedies it seeks to emulate, and some of the dramatic moments feel a bit forced.
June 24, 2006
Mugging to an unfunny script, Keaton and Davis are no Tracy and Hepburn, and the funereal pace doesn't help.
September 2, 2004
Toothless as political satire and bland as romantic comedy.
| Original Score: 2/5
November 6, 2003
A limp, poorly structured would-be romantic comedy.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
November 6, 2003
It comes down to the charms of Keaton and Davis in the end. You like these characters and root for them to score.

November 6, 2003
This is intelligent romantic comedy of the kind we get all too seldom these days, and the plot is something Cary Grant and Katharine Hepburn would have loved in their prime.

May 20, 2003
Ron Underwood, the director of City Slickers, once again compromises appealing actors and an entertaining premise with a needless overlay of mush.
September 20, 2002
Great Cast - pity nothing happens in it.
| Original Score: 2/5
July 28, 2002
The movie starts slow but has two or three good laughs. After that it is downhill all the way.

April 27, 2002
There's no snappy exchange of one-liners, and certainly not the fire that would come onto the screen if the characters bothered to talk about their political convictions.

Director Ron Underwood keeps the film humming along with one surprise after another.
January 1, 2000
Speechless is overplotted and underwritten. Every situation is straight out of stock, with no room for variation or originality.

January 1, 2000
The level of humor is dialed safely down to the Sitcom setting, which limits what can happen, and how much we can care about it.

January 1, 2000
The movie's a campaign disaster from the get-go, and no amount of damage control (including MGM's extensive publicity) can hide it.
