Chicago Tribune
Rendered bland and frustrating by its endless attempts to make the odd odder. Full Review
David Grove
Film Threat
Has more than enough charm to make it memorable. Hurt shows a gentleness and subtlety that's interesting to watch in this phase of his career. Full Review
Ken Eisner
Hurt is quietly affecting as Dave Purcell, a fine chef but a lousy businessman whose sticksville cafe, the Auk, is named after a rare, possibly extinct kind of duck. Full Review
Roger Ebert
Chicago Sun-Times
A sweetheart of a film, whimsical and touching. It positions itself somewhere between a slice of life and a screwball comedy. Full Review
Ty Burr
Boston Globe
For the record, Rare Birds doesn't even fly as a birder's special, since Tasseter's Sulfurious Duck is a fictional species. Now, if they'd seen a Eurasian Wigeon, then we'd be talking. Full Review
