December 31, 2006
Despite a star cast (Nick Nolte, Emily Watson), Rudolph's comedy-mystery is a minor, trivial film that tries to be whimsical but lacks humor or fresh angle on the Hollywood's cherished genres of noir and screwball.

Despite its occasional flashes of brilliance (every Rudolph film has them), this unsavory stew never comes to a boil.

In a strange sort of way, this is Dumb and Dumber for the art-house crowd.

The script is ridiculous and the direction inept.

Watson is hilarious in her earnestness.

[Watson's] performance doesn't stop the movie from falling into disappointing territory.

The advertising tagline to Trixie is that its protagonist murders the English language. The copy-writer doesn't go far enough, though; she's murder on the audience, too.

The movie is as overlong and undermotivated as it is absentmindedly incoherent.

Maybe a better idea would have been to have Trixie and Frances McDormand's Fargo cop start a detective agency.

The last hour and half simply sink under the movie's, and Rudolph's, pretentious voice.

Trixie is the kind of movie that makes you want to quit your job and become an irate stalker making some famous person very sorry for their sins.
January 1, 2000
Trixie might have worked better had it stayed with comedy, but once it lurches into melodrama, to quote Trixie, it 'can't go back to square zero.'
January 1, 2000
A wildly uneven mystery that veers between one-note comedy, dark drama, and political commentary before sputtering to an end.

All of the cast nicely complement Watson, as it is her movie, and watching her is a real treat.

January 1, 2000
A glum misfire that finds neither charm nor suspense.
January 1, 2000
Everything about Trixie -- comic timing, plot structure, basic premise -- is so off that not all the talent in the world can set it on the right track.
