Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"After makinh some significant indies about gay teen angst, Araki's point of departure is a below-mediocre romantic triangle picture that borrows heavily from Noel Coward, Hawks, and Cukor but without freshn insights or charm."
‑ Emanuel Levy, Variety
"Splendor, purportedly a a sex farce, has had all of its joy and energy surgically removed."
‑ Martin Scribbs, Low IQ Canadian
"Allow me to make a case for a controversial filmmaker despite his inarguably awful new work, and perhaps even despite the general course of his career since 1994."
‑ Rob Nelson, City Pages, Minneapolis/St. Paul
"eye-popping, provocative love triangle"
‑ James Sanford, Kalamazoo Gazette
"An agreeable enough watch--that is, until the film is over, when you realize that not once did you care for any of these characters."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"It's far from great, has nothing remotely memorable about it and suffers from a certain derivativeness."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
