    Carla Meyer San Francisco Chronicle

    The studio behind Wicker Park bills it as a "romantic thriller.'' But it's actually an example of an even more unusual subgenre: the dumb, suspense- free and undersexed stalker drama. show more

    Wall Street Journal

    Built on such a goofy premise that your average soap-opera scriptwriter would laugh it out of a story meeting. show more

    Philadelphia Inquirer

    A dementedly artificial and artsy film, a headache-inducing jumble of fractured narrative, flashbacks within flashbacks, and shifting perspectives. show more

    Movies that are entertainingly nuts don't come around very often, and when they do they need to be given their due. show more

    Michael Wilmington Chicago Tribune

    To work, it has to make us feel crazy with love, like "Vertigo" did. Instead, it often just makes us feel crazy for believing any of it. show more
