seriously lame! Who would have thought such an ensemble of stars would produce such a limp rag of a movie.

I find it very difficult to talk about this film intelligently or coherently. This ranks in the absolute highest echelon of my favorite films, the level at which watching them reduces me to feeling like a child experiencing pure joy, wonder, and raw emotion. It hits that indelible blend of imagery, editing, music, and humanity that connects on such a deeply personal level that I simply do not know how to communicate to others what I love so much about it. So I don’t know what else to say other than I adore this film to the deepest reaches of my being.

With such an abundance of well known actors and based on the reviews, I expected much more than this load of rubbish. Watched about 30 minutes before deciding it was a waste of my time. Dull and boring.

Didn't think this movie would be good but it was awesome, I totally loved it! Great performances by all the actors and surprisingly hilarious.

Classic Wes Anderson: intelligent humor that surprises. Fun animation. Beautiful visuals. Memorable characters well acted. Very much enjoyed this film!

This is one of my favorite films. It is unlike anything else I have ever seen, and Willem Dafoe's performance alone is worth watching. Although the humour is dry, it is one of the funniest movies I have seen, without resorting to the standard gross-out or crude humour so often used in new comedy, and it also has some of the most stunning imagery I have seen on film. I can honestly say this is the only film I have ever watched, and then immediately rewatched.

A very original film that teeters between being serious and hilariously fake (much like the documentary it centers upon).

I avoided watching this movie for a looooong time, and I guess you could say in a way it was worth the wait. Surprisingly well done. Quite charming, actually. Clever, even. Even with the stupid dolphins.

The writing wasn't as strong as in Wes Anderson's other work, but I think that the set design, the stop motion animation and the acoustic versions of David Bowie classics in Portuguese more than make up for that. :D
