Wicker Park

2006-03-30 13:04


Two years ago the love of Matthew's (Josh Hartnett) life vanished into thin air. Devastated, he left Chicago to recover from a broken heart. Now he has returned to Wicker Park, happy and engaged to a different woman. But after a glimpse in a cafe convinces Matthew that his long-lost love is still alive, he quickly becomes obsessed with finding her.

What the critics are saying:

"...sums up everything that's wrong with American remakes of foreign films: it's dumbed down so far, it's just plain dumb."
- Nev Pierce, BBCi Film

"Takes plenty of twists and turns, each so implausible and silly that you have no interest whatsoever in finding out what the next one will be."
- Stephanie Zacharek, Salon.com

"Once we understand the principle (if not the details) of the plot, Wicker Park works because the actors invest their scenes with what is, under the circumstances, astonishing emotional realism."
- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

The visuals in this thriller look great, the cast members look even better, but the vacant and implausible script is a waste of our valuable time and money.
