  • The film's problems lie with the lack of spark between a wired Dunst and a bland Bloom, and the meltdown of Drew's mother (Susan Sarandon), who grieves by tap-dancing. show more

  • That gift doesn't desert him [Crowe] in Elizabethtown, but he clutters his movie with plot elements that confuse the focus, the central character and, ultimately, I suspect, Crowe himself. show more

  • Though it's no fiasco -- there's nothing mythic about its disjointed story -- it is a failure. show more

    It is a mystery to me why some people do not like this movie. This is one of my favorite films for so many reasons. The actors are great. Kirsten Dunst and Orlando Bloom are perfect for their roles and have amazing chemestry. The soundtrack of this movie is absolutely fabulous, and it is overall a very touching movie. The first 20 minutes are a little boring but the movie as a whole is excellent! It also gets better and better every time you watch it. Deffinitely watch this Cameron Crowe masterpiece!!!

    This movie wasn't great but it wasn't terrible either. There were spots that dragged on or were somewhat awkward. It has a great theme to it and the music is pretty good too. All the actors were great but I was pleasantly surprised by Orlando's performance; it was fun seeing him having fun in the role. But they tried to make it a little better than it was supposed to be by jumbling everything. That, and those little weird, slow moments were the only thing that brought it down. Other than that, I liked it.
