Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"An antediluvian portrayal of male midlife crisis, reducing any imaginable extramarital complication to a crass matter of gender warfare."
‑ Dennis Lim, Village Voice
"Town & Country is no Ishtar, but it's no Shampoo either."
‑ Geoff Pevere, Toronto Star
"Some scenes are all wind-up and no pitch, but Town & Country and its perfect cast often meander into hilarious insights on the frailty of love."
‑ Jeffrey Westhoff, Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)
"Instead of humorous, this film is obtuse. Instead of romantic, it's boorish. Do yourself a favor and just pass on this bloated piece of gunk and rent some of the earlier films from director Woody Allen, which "Country" so woefully tries to emulate."
‑ Josh Gilchrist, Billings Outpost (Montana)
"Ejemplo claro de lo que no se debe hacer a la hora de escribir un guión."
‑ Jorge Avila Andrade, Moviola
"Nothing [the couples] can say or do can make me care whether they stay together or split up or turn gay."
‑ Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
"Enjoyable but ultimately mystifying."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"...guess what? It really does suck."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"a Waterford crystal candy dish full of dusty mints ... an episodic, paper-thin story that seems to have been lifted from a 35-year-old Jack Lemmon movie."
‑ James Sanford, Kalamazoo Gazette
"Hay directores que matarían por tal reparto, pero esta vez no hay mucho que destacar a pesar de la calidad que respalda a cada uno de ellos. Una comedia regular..."
‑ Alex Ramirez, Cinenganos
"The whole thing is too big, too loud, too expensive and has too much Diane Keaton."
‑ Stephen Hunter, Washington Post
"Por que deveríamos nos interessar por estes ricaços fúteis e seus ridículos problemas amorosos?"
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"The stars play the same tired characters they have made a grand living off for too many years."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Everything that happens after the first 80 minutes or so falls so flat you can see the actors wincing."
‑ Michael W. Phillips, Jr., Goatdog's Movies
"If Town & Country were a play, it would already have closed."
‑ Maria Garcia, Film Journal International
