Demme does something I've never seen another director do - he makes Paris look bad.
Full Review | Original Score: C-
December 29, 2010
A bad remake of a good movie.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
January 27, 2009
Newton's a radiant beam of beguiling star power in this stylish muddle.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
November 1, 2007
Demme's movie is so benign--he likes all his characters, even the villains--it feels like a game of "let's pretend." It's a movie for movie lovers--playful, hip and light as a feather.
September 20, 2004
... a story as mixed up (yet with an outcome as predictable) as a plate of spaghetti.
| Original Score: 1/4
August 19, 2003
Apaixonado por sua própria 'sabedoria' ao transformar esta refilmagem em uma homenagem à nouvelle vague, Demme cria um filme irritante e confuso em seu tom e em seus propósitos, prejudicando-se ainda mais em função da péssima performance de Newton.
| Original Score: 1/5
March 17, 2003
Demme finally succeeds in diminishing his stature from Oscar-winning master to lowly studio hack.
February 11, 2003
Jonathan Demme's fumbled remake of Charade tries to mix old-fashioned champagne romance with straight-from-the-bottle swigs of New Wave style.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
January 16, 2003
I realize that Mark Wahlberg is not Cary Grant, but shouldn't there be some compensating reason for his presence in this movie?
January 8, 2003
[Demme] zigs and zags and drags his camera through Paris with an abandon he hasn't displayed since his days toiling on the Roger Corman assembly line or shooting Something Wild.
January 7, 2003
Wahlberg comes across as a retired underwear model.
December 27, 2002
The truth about Charlie is that there's so much more here than you've been led to believe.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
November 29, 2002
Never do you get the feeling that anybody is in any real danger, or that there's any real attraction between Newton and Wahlberg-and when you're making a caper film that doesn't have any suspense or romance in it, there's not a hell of a lot else left for
November 28, 2002
The ideas behind this Charlie are far more fascinating than their execution proves to be.
Full Review | Original Score: C
November 20, 2002
The truth about Charlie is that it's a brazenly misguided project.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
November 19, 2002
It doesn't know what kind of movie it wants to be.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
November 12, 2002
Jonathan Demme nous revient avec un film qui se cherche, à l'instar du personnage-titre, une identité.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
November 9, 2002
Demme's film looks very French, and appears as appetizing as a croissant.
Full Review | Original Score: B
November 9, 2002
The truth is that The Truth About Charlie gets increasingly tiresome.
November 6, 2002
It's a forgery that diminishes not only the originality and pleasure of the film it copies, but also the entire school of filmmaking it wants to emulate.
