  • McGrath's script is faithful: fierce when it needs to be and devilishly funny. show more

  • Emma is the peak of the recent Austen pack and a star-maker, too -- an antidote to a summer in which even good movies have subordinated writing and characters to special effects. [02 Aug 1996, Pg.01.D] show more

  • The movie is a genteel, witty soap opera designed to make everyone feel the better for having not only seen it, but having had a bit of fun. show more
