L.A. Weekly
Lewd, crude and occasionally too brutal to take, it's also gorgeous, heartfelt.

Newsweek
A highly entertaining movie in a genre that is often as stiff as the Lady Gibson's boning.

Miami Herald
A tad too raunchy for its own good.

TV Guide Magazine
It's vulgar, to be sure, but it's also brash and invigorating.

Entertainment Weekly
Watchable in a facile, trashy way. Unfortunately, most of the movie is mired in sludge, slime, mud, blood, and studiously dank cinematography.

Seattle Post-Intelligencer
There's not an original idea rattling around in the empty-headed but gorgeous-to-behold period film.

It doesn't really hang together. And waaay too much style. Pity.

Rollicking is the term that best sums up Plunkett and Macleane, not in itself a bad thing, just, I think, not a very good thing.

Chicago Tribune
Scott treats the material as if it were grist for a 30-second spot or a rowdy music video.

Everything is stunningly photographed by John Mathieson, but to paraphrase Gertrude Stein, a cockroach is a cockroach is a cockroach.
