Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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."
‑ Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald
"In its own silly, artificial way, it's the first Anderson film to acknowledge the existence of a world outside its own little toy box and to ground its characters' nostalgia in something resembling actual historical reality."
‑ Alex Pappademas, Grantland
"The Grand Budapest Hotel may be Wes Anderson's most finely-crafted film to date, and is one that even the filmmaker's detractors should be able to appreciate."
‑ Austin Trunick, Under the Radar
"The ultimate reason why [it] feels fresh and vibrant [is because] it harkens so far back in movie history to find its inspiration that it proves the old "everything old is new again" maxim is true."
‑ Richard Knight, Windy City Times
"The movie may suffer from some of its quick-and-done plotting, but its quality of humor, spectacle, and acting is all top notch."
‑ Jack Giroux, Film School Rejects
""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."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"The comedy in The Grand Budapest Hotel is among the broadest yet undertaken by Anderson. But amid the frenzied hubbub, there are intimations of a darker, sadder history unfolding."
‑ Christopher Orr, The Atlantic
"Wes Anderson mais Wes Anderson do que nunca."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"A beautiful dream that helps us deal with the slings and arrows of our banal real world with a little more pluck."
‑ Rob Vaux,
"Anderson's film looks good enough to eat; swallowing it is another matter."
‑ Melissa Anderson, Artforum
"After feeding on this sweet buffet, sated cinephiles will want to call the front desk to extend their stay."
‑ Joe Williams, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
"If a movie can be elegantly zany, this wholly imaginative, assured fable of a legendary concierge Gustave H. (Ralph Fiennes), his protégé Zero (Tony Revolori) and the murder of a countess, is it."
‑ Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post
"Hundreds of precious little moments but not much beyond extravagant artifice to sink your teeth into."
‑ Bruce Bennett, Spectrum (St. George, Utah)
"Anderson and his crew build an impeccable, elaborate world that is opulent and breathtaking, yet somewhat silly."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, San Francisco Examiner
"This wacky screwball comedy, loosely based on stories by Stefan Zweig, has a plot so labyrinthine and frantic it is hardly worth following, except for the fantastic sets and appealing central characters played by Ralph Fiennes and Tony Revolori."
‑ Robert Roten, Laramie Movie Scope
