I could watch this movie over and over. It is so quirky and silly but serious at times too. All Star Cast and wonderful soundtrack. I highly recommend this movie!

This Criterion edition of The Royal Tenenbaums is predictably thorough and entirely enjoyable. One could not ask for more in the way of extras, and the quality throughout is exceptional. The film itself ranks as one of Anderson's best, and it doesn't lack in ambition, scope, and character. It is my favourite of Hackman's many roles, and he achieves pathos despite caricature like none since Sweet and Low Down's inestimable Penn. A terrific package, and highly recommended.

If you thought that they stopped making good films after the 70's, this is a flick that will restore your faith in the movies.
What starts as a pitch black comedy about a family of neurotic, failed child prodigies (Stiller, Paltrow and Luke Wilson) poisoned by the self-indulgence of their dissolute-but-still-loveable patriarch (Hackman) morphs effortlessly somewhere in the final reel into a touching paen to forgiveness, redemption and family without losing its offbeat edge at all.
Anderson's bold use of well-composed head-on shots is dazzling at times. His and Owen Wilson's screenplay is as sharp and snappy as they get, creating a ensemble of quirky, memorable characters that give all of the actors something to sink their teeth into. All of the performances from the leads to the elevator attendants are top notch (especially Hackman and Luke Wilson, the latter's performance being something of a revelation), and the soundtrack makes a perfect counterpoint to what's going on onscreen.
The DVD is a Criterion, so (as you've come to expect) it's excellent in quality with loads and loads of nifty features.
I recently watched this disc back-to-back with Altman's delightful Gosford Park. And I know this might sound like heresy, but I actually think that Anderson handles his ensemble a little better even than Altman . . . and Altman still handles his ensembles damn well. High praise indeed.

I usually prefer older movies, but this could possibly be my favorite movie of all time. The script it brilliant, it's hilarious and touching. There's sorrow in the humor that makes it seem very real. The movie is very observant of human nature, and very insightful. It's also accompanied by a wonderful soundtrack, that compliments the dialogue and camerawork beautifully.

Once again, Wes Anderson brings back Deepak Pallana (Pagoda in the film). He has appeared in every Anderson film, especially as Kumar in Bottle Rocket. My friend and I still wonder why this quirky guy ends up in all of Anderson's movies, but I love every minute of it. He is hilarious!!!! Pagoda yelling "You son of a beeech" and stabbing Royal Tenenbaum is so unexpected and hilarious, I almost fell out of my seat. Tenenbaum's reaction is almost as funny!!!! JUST SEE THIS MOVIE!!!!!!!!!

While not quite as brilliant and original as Wes Anderson's previous
classic 'Rushmore', it's a terrific movie, full of wonderful
performances, great cinematic flourishes, Anderson's trademark terrific
use of songs as score, and lots of very funny and occasionally
deeply touching moments.

It just doesn't stay with you quite the same way 'Rushmore' does, and
some of the Anderson techniques that were shockingly new the first
time, feel more familiar here. But this is still one of the brightest,
most original voices on the film scene in the last 20 years,
a film-maker who creates oddball worlds and characters that somehow
you can still always relate to. This is a film well worth seeing out.

I am a skeptic on some prticular actors and actresses, and it so happens that two of them were in the royal tenembaums. Of course I'm referring to Luke wilson, and ben stiller.
Stiller has done nothing for me since appearing in theres something about Mary. He falls into this habit of playing the same two characters in every movie. The nice quiet innocent character who alway seems to be thrown to the wolves. nut stuck in zipper, crap on your dates especially favorite loofa, etc, etc. And of course there's the Ben stiller who is just a total jerk. In tenenbaums, Stiller actually flexes his acting muscles creating a new image of him and lodging it in my brain. Wow!! i guess he can act.
As for Wilson i didn't favor him simply because of the god awful shanghai movies. I admit now that was unfair Luke Wilson has my respect now. Not that he cares, but hey.
Ok well enogh rambling the movie was excellent and the charcters were very well thought out, particularly Margot. I will agree with a former reviewer in that the film was a bit tedious, but you win some and you lose some.
