    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    This stuff is golden. Directors Brett Morgan and Nanette Burstein make sure the movie goes down like potato chips. It's great fun and compulsively watchable. And don't leave before Dustin Hoffman makes a hilarious appearance as the credits roll. show more

    Carrie Rickey Philadelphia Inquirer

    Robert Evans has been variously described as the Hugh Hefner of Hollywood, a Tinseltown Gatsby, the Lancelot of the backlot. show more

    Jami Bernard New York Daily News

    The best part is during the closing credits. Dustin Hoffman does a brilliant, dead-on impression of Evans that captures the essence of the man more than all the self-serving grandiosity that preceded it. show more

    Ty Burr Boston Globe

    Implicitly acknowledges and celebrates the glorious chicanery and self-delusion of this most American of businesses, and for that reason it may be the most oddly honest Hollywood document of all. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    A new documentary about the life of this producer who put together one of the most remarkable winning streaks in Hollywood history, and followed it with a losing streak that almost destroyed him. It's one of the most honest films ever made about Hollywood. show more

    Lawrence Toppman Charlotte Observer

    Evans makes a terrific raconteur, imitating voices and putting us behind the scenes. show more

    Rene Rodriguez Miami Herald

    Occasionally feels a bit suffocating, like being trapped at a party by a drunkard who won't shut up until he tells you his entire life story. show more

    Megan Lehmann New York Post

    A compelling portrait of a matchless man, who's still going strong at 72. show more
