September 7, 2004
The story had no guts and cheated the audience with such insanely coincidental plot twists that made me to fight to stay in my seat.

September 7, 2004
What begins as a pleasantly utilitarian thriller gradually decays into a mediocre suspense drama and ends as an irritatingly feeble love story called Wicker Park...

September 7, 2004
...a shallow, inept story of romantic miscues, with enough loose ends to make you wonder if anyone was even paying attention during the filming.

They have translated a foreign film to an American friendly version in a way that neither diminishes nor excessively departs from the original.

September 6, 2004
This film is genuinely interested in getting us inside the heads of its three leads (Matthew, Alex, and Lisa). It wants us to understand, although not necessarily sympathize with, all three of them.

Josh Hartnett wanders around Wicker Park like he's been doped up with a low-dose horse tranquilizer, looking mildly bewildered...

Falls apart because of the trivial narrative.

a melancholy mess of a movie where attractive people act like idiots for a few hours, all the while performing as if they were in a murder mystery or a ghost story.

A powerfully compelling film that gains most of its intrigue via the artifice of purposefully withholding information from the moviegoer.

September 5, 2004
This American version can't hold a candle to its French counterpart, which was deeply, eerily resonant where this is only frustrating, a Rubik's Cube, minus its colorful signage.

It's no coincidence that Wicker Park doesn't work.

September 5, 2004
...a romantic thriller devoid of romance, but it does thrill with the anticipation of how over the top the filmmakers' next move will be.

September 4, 2004
Takes plenty of twists and turns, each so implausible and silly that you have no interest whatsoever in finding out what the next one will be.
September 4, 2004
It seems to take a confused eternity to get started, but once director Paul McGuigan's m.o. finally becomes apparent, the thing takes on a dogged kind of interest.

Oh dear readers run to another theater and don't look back...

While the cast is beautiful to look at, by the time the movie reveals what's really going on, you'll be struck with more boredom than shock.

Wicker Park is an otherworldly dream, and as it progressed I couldn't help but inch more and more up in my seat to take it all in.

Not the customary disposable cinematic fare released on the always-slow Labor Day weekend, but an intriguing, original film of ideas and human feeling.
