    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    If looks were everything, director Baz Luhrmann's epic salute to his native land would be the movie of the year. But, crikey, a padded script bloated with subplots and shameless sentimentality can wear you down. show more

    DO NOT waste your money. This was awful. We rented it as a DVD, and turned it off to watch NCIS reruns!
