An affectionate but unremarkable biography of lyricist/writer Howard Ashman, who was in large part responsible for Disney's early-'90s renaissance.
Provides nearly three hours of superior entertainment both for those who consider themselves devotees and those without previous viewing experience.
Plays well on the small screen because the essence of the film – an exploration of characters and their relationships – remains unchanged.
A solid throwaway B-movie that probably thinks it has more to say than it actually does but is entertaining nonetheless.
By blending facts, myths, and made-up material, Lemmons weaves a strong, engaging tale but there’s a sense of a missed opportunity to do something grander.
There’s something delicious about the way "Hustlers" delivers on its promise of glitz, sex, and raunchiness while delving far enough beneath the surface to subvert the genre.
Johnson, Statham, and Kirby are tremendous together and (bloated running time aside) things are sufficiently loud and flashy to attract a large audience.
A pointless retread with nothing to recommend it beyond Ian McShane’s commanding presence.
No film is ever going unseat "Bonnie and Clyde" but "The Highwaymen" is a worthy, if lesser, companion piece.
