The New York Times
Alternates between bumbling group antics and strained poignancy...anticipates all laughter and emotion in ways that make it its own worst enemy. Full Review
Jack Mathews
New York Daily News
An awkwardly executed, tedious and -- a near impossibility for a Holocaust movie -- emotionally uninvolving bore. Full Review
Janet Maslin
The New York Times
Alternates between bumbling group antics and strained poignancy...anticipates all laughter and emotion in ways that make it its own worst enemy. Full Review
Jay Carr
Boston Globe
Deserves a place alongside "Life Is Beautiful" and, yes, even "Schindler's List." Full Review
Kenneth Turan
Los Angeles Times
The latest in what feels like an endless string of movies ... in which the actor's parts have ruinously overdosed on sentimentality and schmaltz at the expense of humor and even sanity. Full Review
