  • The movie, however, is a crock. show more

  • By the end of Scent of a Woman, we have arrived at the usual conclusion of the coming-of-age movie, and the usual conclusion of the prep school movie. But rarely have we been taken there with so much intelligence and skill. show more

  • Thanks to a landmark performance by Al Pacino, SCENT OF A WOMAN is an agreeably watchable film. If they'd made it half an hour shorter and re-written the ending, it could have been a great one. show more

    This was one of the best movies I\'ve ever seen. Al Pacino is stunningly good, as both the bad-ass Col. Slade, and as the smart protective father that Charlie so desperately needs in order to fight the Ivory-Tower men. Poignant, edgy, thrilling, moving, and laced with intrigue.
