A judicious comic actor, Arterton plays the eponymous Tamara, who throws a small English village into a tizzy when she returns from London to put the family cottage on the market.

Frears' loose-limbed film, while warm and fitfully witty, feels consistently and steadfastly like less than the sum of its parts.
April 4, 2011
It's a fine diversion filled with silly people following their silly desires.

Frears' screen version slightly coarsens Simmonds' wit and softens her sharpness, but even if his film manages to be more cartoony than the original cartoons, it remains hugely enjoyable.

[Stephen] Frears brings a light touch and a knowing compassion to this pastoral romantic farce...
February 4, 2011
The literary set pieces and the rock legend versus teenage stalkers are great fun. Watch for some excellent Thomas Hardy jokes. Episodic but diverting.
February 2, 2011
Frears' broader aim is to fully chart the daisy chain of consequences set in train by bad moral behaviour, a theme that has proved a favourite of his and which he prosecutes here with very satisfying results.

There's something about the desperation of Jody that gives the film its most uncomfortable and surprising moments. Otherwise, it's a bit of a stroll down familiar paths.

February 1, 2011
Good-natured as it is, it isn't nearly witty enough to justify the efforts of Frears's gifted cast.

Spirited, sexy and stacked with laughs - both light and delightfully dark - Tamara Drewe is a must-see modern day period comedy, with smarts.
January 26, 2011
Tamara Drewe's general lack of cheesiness manages to make it a fun summer film that doesn't take itself too seriously.

"Tamara Drewe" is a wickedly smart hybrid of a literary roundelay and a postfeminist manifesto.

December 9, 2010
It succeeds as a comedy of manners and observation, though it errs in presenting us with a wide array of interesting characters, and then selecting the least compelling among them to drive the story.

A better Woody Allen movie than Allen's most recent one, Tamara Drewe is a farce in line (if not on par) with Shakespeare's own, as daffy adults fall in and out of love and lust in a bucolic English hamlet.
December 8, 2010
The cast is delightful, although Arterton's role is defined by seductive smiles and the rise of her cut-off shorts. Allam and Cooper are standouts, creating hormonally despicable characters getting more of Tamara's attention than they deserve.

Always engaging, if disjointed, and dotted with pleasant surprises.

... as invigorating as a year in the airy, earthy English country.
