Paul Mazursky's 14th film as director is a cozy, insular middle-aged marital comedy that's about as deep and rewarding as a day of mall-cruising.

Scenes From a Mall is a peculiar but, finally, very engaging comedy.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

There are moments here and there, but it's mostly ordinary, unimaginative writing. Midler and Allen deserve better.

Chicago Reader

Mazursky has returned with a vengeance to his special universe where the upper middle class is the only thing that exists, and this time he has absolutely nothing to say about it.

When a movie seems overflowing with interesting, colorful details, that is often a sign of desperation -- a way of saying, if the picture's no good, get a gaudier frame.

Sorta funny, but the gap yawns between what it is and what it should have been.

Time Out

Allen's admittedly funny lines get lost in the mess, and Midler, in relatively restrained mode, fades away altogether.

Washington Post

A close-up look at a couple's painful catharsis so well wedded to marital discord it's like going through a divorce with yourself.
