Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's as ditsy and delightful as ever - with charm enough to forgive it plenty."
‑ Cath Clarke, Time Out
"This story of a party girl in love with a gigolo allows [director Blake] Edwards to create a very handsome film, with impeccable Technicolor photography by Franz Planer."
‑ Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader
"...a captivating romantic comedy that lives up to its place as a classic of the genre."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Blake Edwards's hymn to New York high style and high living with its charming heroine, along with her cat (called "Cat") and those wonderful Johnny Mercer Moon River lyrics, has hardly dated since its release."
‑ Tony Sloman, Radio Times
"An undeniably romantic tale of damaged goods finding love."
‑ Chris Laverty, Clothes on Film
"...the final scene, a tender sequence that you can sop up with a sponge, but if you aren't moved by it you probably stick kittens with pins."
‑ Mark Bourne,
"A completely unbelievable but wholly captivating flight into fancy composed of unequal dollops of comedy, romance, poignancy, funny colloquialisms and Manhattan's swankiest East Side areas captured in the loveliest of colors."
‑ A.H. Weiler, New York Times
"Audrey Hepburn gives one of her most stylish and iconic performances in this charming if slightly sentimental version of Truman Capote's famous novella."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Its charms remain undiminished after five decades, despite Mickey Rooney's Mr Yunioshi..."
‑ Neil Smith, Total Film
"Whatever it is, I just don't see the pizzazz in Holly Golightly's life."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"Out of the elusive, but curiously intoxicating Truman Capote fiction, scenarist George Axelrod has developed a surprisingly moving film, touched up into a stunningly visual motion picture."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"For those who considers themselves romantics, or for anyone who just enjoys a simple love story from time-to-time, Breakfast at Tiffany's offers a few simple pleasures."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"Well, the movie still looks very good, and you'd need a heart of stone not to love the cat."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"Fabulous, but lots of drinking and cigarettes."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"When it comes to cinematic fashion and romance, perhaps none are more iconic than Blake Edwards' Breakfast at Tiffany's."
‑ Ryan Cracknell, Movie Views
