In Vanity Fair's universe without heroes, shameless central character Becky Sharp would have surely felt supremely at home stuck on Temptation Island, or in the boardroom of The Apprentice.

To our utter delight, these stories and messages are told with superb acting, amazing costumes that burst with color and texture, and dazzling locales.

Becky's adept maneuvering through upper society's pitfalls is sometimes muddled from too many characters and too little explanation, but Witherspoon remains fun to watch...

Not at all the stiff costume drama bore I thought this movie was going to be.

Lacking a character we really care about, we're left floundering in a mud puddle of human misbehavior. [But] the performances are all impressive.

As Vanity Fair rests unsteadily between floral elegance and grim satire, Mira Nair's auteurist touches keep it engaging as it fails to get a grip on Thackeray's scope.

In Vanity Fair, Witherspoon presents a complex character beautifully, even when her character's choices vastly depart from her own values.

Reese's piece certainly looks good, it's just not terribly engaging.

Although long and disjointed, with characters...from Gone With the Wind, and burdened by (terrible) audio..., Vanity Fair is an entertaining film that held my interest.

Nair... revels in Thackeray's lampooning of genteel class warfare...
