5.0 out of 5 stars DEEPAK PALLANA RETURNS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
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...

3.0 out of 5 stars Movies Are Not IQ Tests...
Well, I lasted through this movie recently...but just barely. And for those of you who aren't sure, you can actually dislike this movie even if your IQ is above 85. :) I generally enjoy controversy in the reviews, but the elitism shown in these reviews is simply wretched.
For those who don't know, the story is about the reunion of Royal Tenenbaum (Hackman) and his...

This review is from: The Royal Tenenbaums (DVD)
I dont know why people thought that this is such a great movie. I personally think this movie was horrible with the dry humor that was not funny. A complete waste of time and money!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Royal pain, April 7 2004
By 
D. Hartley (Seattle, WA USA) - See all my reviews
This review is from: The Royal Tenenbaums (DVD)
First, a note to our sniveling, self-appointed "IQ" experts who have deemed to enlighten us with thier laughably cliched psychological profiles of anyone who doesn't wet thier pants over this pretentious turkey:
1. I am an avid film fan who fully understands the "language" of film.
2. I fully grasp the concept of "irony".
3. I LOVE "quirky".
So why did I feel the "Royal Tenenbaums" sucked with the intensity of 1,000 black holes? Because even Stephen Hawking would agree that if it LOOKS like $#!+, and SMELLS like $#!+... well you know the rest. For a truly ENTERTAINING story about a "quirky" and dysfunctional family that SUCCESSFULLY mixes bathos, pathos, slapstick AND intellect, check out the 1972 cult classic "The Ruling Class" instead (also from Criterion, who have really made a rare, but baffling misfire by adding "Tenenbaums" to thier impressive canon.)

1.0 out of 5 stars Hollywood's attempt at being artsy, Jan. 24 2004
This review is from: The Royal Tenenbaums (DVD)
Hollywood rarely makes a good artsy film, and this one is not one of the rare ones. The movie is packed with mediocre to good actors who give a good effort , yet are inable to bring it all together. I think the problem is that they are all forced to take on roles which are not within their usual strong areas and they all failed miserably despite their good efforts. Take a pass on this one, it's not worth the almost two hours of your life you will spend on it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Duped and Disappointed, March 16 2003
This review is from: The Royal Tenenbaums (DVD)
Don't waste your money on this slow moving, dismal comedy. Big name actors and a defibrillator couldn't bring this "comedy" to life. The biggest disappointment of all was popping it into the DVD player, pushing play and hearing the voice of Alec Baldwin coming through the speakers. Never would I have spent my hard earned AMERICAN money on a film that employed this America-hating, so-called actor who should have left the country long ago.
