some of the critics:
The film received positive reviews from critics. On Rotten Tomatoes 32 out of 36 reviewers marked the film as "fresh", thus giving it a mark of 89%. New York Times film critic Janet Maslin praised DiCaprio's performance, writing "the film's real show-stopping turn comes from Mr. DiCaprio, who makes Arnie's many tics so startling and vivid that at first he is difficult to watch.... The performance has a sharp, desperate intensity from beginning to end." Roger Ebert of Chicago Sun-Times described it as "..one of the most enchanting films of the year" and said that DiCaprio deserved to win the Academy Award for which he was nominated. Todd McCarthy of Variety found the film a "bemused view on life" and remarked that "Depp manages to command center screen with a greatly affable, appealing characterization." Washington Post's Desson Howe thought the film was an earnest but highly predictable effort.
