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...

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

Under close analysis, none of this elaborate subterfuge makes much sense, but the film is so polished in its technical proficiency that I found the absence of logic forgivable.

This had the makings of a brilliant screwball comedy but the filmmakers turned it into a serious drama. Not bad, but, to paraphrase Marlon Brando, it coulda been something; instead, it's this!

[Tulip Fever is] lush and boisterous and crammed with the sort of arts gossip and commerce trivia that go nicely with gilded frames and talk of tulip futures.

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 4, 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.

... Tulip Fever is simply a blooming disaster.

Great look, great cast ... but everything just sits there like a tableful of delicious ingredients waiting for a master chef who never shows up.

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.

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.

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.
September 9, 2017
Tasteless and torpid, this dreadful costume drama wilts as it unfolds.

The film flails around trying to convince us it's depicting a heady, madcap, passionate time in its characters' lives. Somehow, though, it all feels about as exciting as a stroll through a tulip garden.

Harvey Weinstein should have marketed Tulip Fever as a farce.
