Consensus: Typically stylish but deceptively thoughtful, The Grand Budapest Hotel finds Wes Anderson once again using ornate visual environments to explore deeply emotional ideas.

"The Grand Budapest Hotel" is not his grandest work yet, but it is one worth an extended stay.

Anderson's films are too precious for some, but for those of us willing to lose ourselves in them, they're a delight. "The Grand Budapest Hotel" is no different, except that he has added a hint of gravitas to the mix, improving the recipe.

The Grand Budapest Hotel is not a callous work, but it's about packing painful experience in storage.

I like Anderson when he's making movies about childhood -- "Rushmore," or "Fantastic Mr. Fox" -- but when he ventures into the realm of adulthood, he seems out of his jurisdiction.

The movie is a flume ride through the imagination of one of the most creative minds making movies today, and the pleasure curls your toes. Also, be ready to crave some macaroons.

Wes Anderson's superb eye for visual storytelling comes to a head with this luscious murder mystery that starts out in an exclusive luxury hotel and thrills the audience throughout Europe.

Grand isn't good enough a word for this Budapest Hotel. Great is more like it.

"Budapest" is pretty much an old-fashioned screwball comedy garishly dressed. It's goofy, eccentric and often downright silly. There are many scenes that would have worked in a "Three Stooges" movie.

A grownup storybook of a movie spun out of candy-colored nonsense that challenges you to embrace its falseness and deny its romance.
