Dissenters who see this film as a wallow in self-absorption aren't paying attention. Baumbach is acutely attuned to the droll mind games of smart people who only think they're impervious to feeling. show more
Some call Margot a comedy. For me, it is a tragedy impaled by comic moments. show more
Noah Baumbach has followed up his acclaimed 2005 breakthrough "The Squid and the Whale" with another wryly observed, giddily cringe-inducing, bracingly original winner. show more
The longest, most boring, most senseless movie I've seen in a long time. And- here's a tip for all you viewers out there- there never is a wedding! So if you're waiting for your misery to end by hanging on until you see "margot at the wedding" don't bother- I think the writer titled it that way so that people would watch it to the end. Two hours I'll never get back and never stop missing!
I have never walked out of a theater where the entire audience tells those in line DO NOT SEE THIS MOVIE. The movie was attrocious. The characters were undeveloped and the narrative random and scattered. There were many offensive and bizarre bits. The story line was confusing. There was nothing redeeming about this movie. The trailer portrayed the movie as a comedy. It was absolutely painful to watch.
Very disappointing -- strange story line and weird ending. I can't believe Nicole Kidman lowered herself to this one.
