You don't get very far into Tulip Fever before feeling that something is not quite right.

Perhaps if this film had been crafted as a screwball comedy it would've been more effective.

Such a fascinating moment in Dutch history is deserving of a far better vehicle than an episode of Hollyoaks produced by Harvey Weinstein.

Parts of the plot make the tulip buyers themselves look positively restrained. Worth a look for the costumes (and how they are used), Christoph Waltz and Holliday Grainger -- otherwise save your money and buy your loved one a bunch of garage flowers.

The quality of the cast and the level of craftsmanship ensure a superficially entertaining film, but you suspect it could have been so much more.

It seems more like a slick period piece or tiresomely predictable caper.

Tulip Fever is a pretty picture, and it effectively transports you back in time, but once you are there you'll be headed to the exit before you can even smell the tulips.

Looks the blossoming part with its elegant, painterly staging, but never finds an appropriate tone for the tale's sex, envy and tulip-bartering theatrics.
December 5, 2017
The film is populated with so many ancillary characters, which are far more engaging than the central lovers, that their antics too often distract from the central plot.

The film's centre doesn't hold.

How all of this could have been played so straight - and ended up so politely dull - will bend minds for years to come.

Beauty, passion and tulips are the themes of this rich and enjoyable foray into 17th century Amsterdam where the riches of the purse, the heart and the bedroom are at odds. It's about forbidden love in a gorgeous setting...

... Tulip Fever is simply a blooming disaster.

In Tulip Fever it's the financial story that's fascinating, while the romantic angle for the couple is a little tired.

Great look, great cast ... but everything just sits there like a tableful of delicious ingredients waiting for a master chef who never shows up.
September 19, 2017
Director Chadwick brings a stodgy, Oscar-bait sensibility that's firmly at odds with the pulpy, bodice-ripping plot mechanics.
September 19, 2017
Though it is beautifully shot and well acted, the flat plot is nothing to write home about.
September 15, 2017
This tone-deaf costume drama takes a preposterous story and tells it clumsily, with strange choices all around and most of the plot turns either confusing or silly.
September 14, 2017
Things about it are good, and it just isn't. Part of that blames lies with the story, a terribly ponderous and silly affair that gives far too much relevance to billowing cloaks, a drunk guy ... and the general presence of Cara Delevigne

"Tulip Fever" gave me a mild headache.
