All Critics (4) | Top Critics (3)

The candy-colored musical from Taiwanese heartthrob Jay Chou is two-thirds delightful.

Top Critic

"The Rooftop" is frenzied, funny and knowing, drenched in lavish, often surreal, imagery.

Top Critic

"The Rooftop" is a restless boy-fights-for-girl fantasia, too stylistically bulbous a misfire to allow for easy enjoyment as either a demented throwback or a genre hybrid.

Top Critic

Chou, who also wrote and directed, has a good eye for visuals, but when it comes to his screenplay, he could have used a lot more originality.
