Town & Country Reviews

Top Critic
April 25, 2003
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
May 2, 2001
An antediluvian portrayal of male midlife crisis, reducing any imaginable extramarital complication to a crass matter of gender warfare.
April 27, 2001
Nothing [the couples] can say or do can make me care whether they stay together or split up or turn gay.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
April 27, 2001
The whole thing is too big, too loud, too expensive and has too much Diane Keaton.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
April 27, 2001
Town & Country is no Ishtar, but it's no Shampoo either.
April 27, 2001
Bland, disjointed and becomes increasingly bizarre as the film progresses.
April 27, 2001
The movie's not bad enough to be world-ending, merely clumsy enough to make the offending studio exec clean out his desk.

April 27, 2001
It's all blissfully meaningless and irresponsible, but I laughed myself sick.
April 27, 2001
The humor here is overcooked to the point of limpness.
April 27, 2001
Stuff gets thrown into the mix literally from several directions, in the vain hope that the story will organically cohere.
April 27, 2001
Feels like a ragged assemblage of parts from at least two entirely different movies.
April 27, 2001
There is a lot to like in this stab at the rat-tat-tat lunacy of 1940s-era screwball comedies.
April 27, 2001
An unfunny, unfocused mess.
April 27, 2001
Urbane, observant ... and read with expertise by its once-in-a-lifetime cast.

April 27, 2001
It should have quietly skulked off to the Hamptons, where it couldn't annoy the nonprivileged with its pointlessness and irrelevancy.
April 27, 2001
Glossy, vapid and having nothing to do with reality.
April 27, 2001
Stands as one of the season's few genuinely adult comedies.
April 27, 2001
It does offer ... the pleasures of watching its seasoned stars expertly go through their familiar paces.

April 26, 2001
So many idiotic complications, implausible reversals, loose ends and flat-out buffoonery that the good will of the opening is utterly lost.
April 26, 2001
Every scene is designed to cram in a motley combination of stars and send them flailing about screaming in lieu of any plot or character development.
April 26, 2001
Without warning, it goes from inept to complete disaster, sinking from indifferent to fiasco in the blink of an eye.

April 26, 2001
The gags don't play, the writing is off-key, and director Peter Chelsom never establishes a rhythm to carry the comedy along.
April 26, 2001
When Charlton Heston is the funniest thing in a comedy, you've got problems.
April 26, 2001
Coarse, clunky, jerry rigged, and -- worst of all -- not funny.
Full Review | Original Score: D
April 26, 2001
Beatty's performance consists primarily of looking befuddled.
April 26, 2001
Looks like a movie that's been hacked up and messed over too long.
