New York Post
Risks trivializing history and pandering to feminist fantasies, but it may be the year's most fearless movie.

Mr. Showbiz
Banderas may have been crazy to make such a heady directorial debut, but it's hard not to be charmed by his ambitions.
63
Boston Globe
The pieces don't always fit together smoothly, but there's a lot of flavorful work to savor.
50
Chicago Sun-Times
An ungainly fit of three stories that have no business being shoehorned into the same movie.
50
San Francisco Chronicle
It's troubling to watch it stray and ramble as first-time director Antonio Banderas struggles to pull disparate elements together.
50
USA Today
Were some group to launch a rival to the Oscars called The Wackys, it could do worse than make crazed Crazy its first recipient.
50
New York Daily News
Mismatch of tone and material.
50
Miami Herald
Inadvertently does with the civil rights movement exactly what Banderas set out not to do: trivializes it.
50
Tries with intermittent success to juggle two stories.
40
Rolling Stone
Somehow, Lucille's plight is meant to comment astutely on the civil-rights movement. Now that IS crazy.
33
Entertainment Weekly
As campy as a flick by Banderas' evident artistic mentor, Pedro Almódovar.
