I'm sure this was a good movie and had it some interesting insights into morality and double standards for men and women. For me it was disappointing because it was described as a comedy. I selected it because I wanted a good laugh but I did not laugh once. There may have been some irony but no comedy for me.
Looks beautiful, but thin in substance

Beautiful setting and costumes. Looks good, and generally well acted and well produced. Some good one liners. A typical Oscar Wilde story, full of misunderstandings and mistaken identity. If you like Oscar Wilde, you will probably enjoy this film, but it didn't do it for me.
On the fence with this one.

Was a bit surprised with this one. Wasn't sure what to expect, and not sure if I got it afterwards! Wasn't too bad, Helen Hunt and Scarlet Johannsen were both out of their depth a bit, but besides that it wasn't too bad.

It is quite different than most new films, it certainly does not rely on special effects. I was pleasantly surprised, great cast, unexpected twist and overall it is worth watching.
A Good Movie

What an excellent movie, I am a big fan of the book that this movie is based on and was truly moved by the whole thing. The gentlemen dialogues were excellent as was Helen Hunt
