These four characters bounce off each other, slowly revealing motivations and desires and deceptions, providing a mildly entertaining, but ultimately shallow, experience.

Nothing in the movie is what it appears to be, which is unfortunate since, at the outset at least, what it appears to be is interesting.

A romance that isn't romantic and a thriller lacking thrills.

McGuigan could have done better with a more energetic lead than Hartnett, who seems to have studied at the Keanu Reeves School of Emotional Expression.

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...

There are a lot more coincidences -- in fact, there's a multiple- coincidence pileup -- and each one wears your patience a little thinner.

Feel free to take a leisurely stroll out to the lobby for Swedish fish in the middle of Wicker Park. Missing 10 minutes won't affect your ability to follow this babel in the least.

Hartnett is far too stolid to convey the frazzled desperation required by McGuigan's soporific romantic mystery Wicker Park.

Paul McGuigan has such an engaging way of telling stories that it's a shame to see his skills put toward a movie with such a silly third act.

Weak acting, silly story, and totally incomprehensible.

It's a softer portrait of mental instability, and a revenge picture mixed with Splenda instead of Jack Daniels.

Wicker Park is one of those maddening movies in which the characters do incredibly stupid things simply for the sake of plot contrivance, and everyone's problems would be solved if they simply picked up their cell phones.

'Wicker Park' is so forgettable that I needed to dig up the press kit in order to remember the names of most of the characters less than two hours after seeing it.

Both bland and slightly daft.

Sadly, we never really get the sense that these individuals are at the mercy of their capricious desires, and the absence of that engagement leaves us rather too much time to ponder the plot holes.

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

Wicker Park isn't very good, but it is fixable. The biggest problems are caused when director Paul McGuigan is trying to do too much.
