Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The film is plagued by too many long, dead moments in which the story doesn't seem to be getting anywhere and attention wanders."
‑ Nina Darnton, New York Times
"This is an impressive debut film."
‑ Paul Attanasio, Washington Post
"An early, interesting indie about the Cajuns that came out of Sundance Film Fest."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Another ethnic group -- Cajuns, this time -- suffers the patronizing ministrations of the American Independent Cinema."
‑ Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
"Belizaire has personality and quiet charm and a lot of affection, mixed in with the more predictable action elements."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Belizaire the Cajun is a "find" worth looking for at your local video store."
‑ Mark R. Leeper, rec.arts.movies.reviews
"It's billed as a romantic comedy, but Cajun humor, like crawfish gumbo, takes some getting used to."
‑ Rita Kempley, Washington Post
"Unique and flavorable slice of life."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
