Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Even the title is a letdown, somehow."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"Funny, scary and brilliantly cinematic."
‑ Geoff Andrew, Time Out
"I enjoyed it more back in 1990, though I'd be hard-pressed to recall exactly why -- viewing it now, it's only a marginally satisfying experience, with some potent set-pieces diluted by an almost juvenile predilection on Lynch's part."
‑ Matt Brunson, Creative Loafing
"The result's mostly empty at heart and hollow on top."
‑ Ali Catterall, Film4
"Lynch's paean to Wizard of Oz divided critics when it premeiered at Cannes, and it never found an audience beyond the helmer's fans who enjoyed the fable's couple (Nicolas Cage and Laura Dern) taking their own Yellow Brick Road in search of the wizard"
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Joltingly violent, wickedly funny and rivetingly erotic."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"Though Miss Dern and Mr. Cage are constantly upstaged by the rest of the movie, they triumph."
‑ Vincent Canby, New York Times
"A perverse, violent, nutso depiction of romance that even Bonnie and Clyde would shrug off as too hardcore for them."
‑ Christopher Runyon, Movie Mezzanine
"This winner of the Cannes Film Festival's Palme d'Or is a lunatic road movie seething with the same dark intensity that animates director Lynch's earlier work."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Not for the weak of heart, one of the best Lynchian outings with some fantastically memorable dialogue."
‑ Kenny Matheson, Empire Magazine
"Barry Gifford's beautifully written picaresque novel about southern lovers on the run, though essentially literary, could have worked as a movie had David Lynch shown some fidelity to the realistic context."
‑ Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
"Lynch's kinky fairy tale is a triumph of startling images and comic invention."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"Should be perceived as a wicked comedy."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"It's not a pleasant film by any definition, and it's not remotely for everyone, but it's true to Lynch's vision."
‑ Rob Gonsalves, eFilmCritic.com
"Wild at Heart feels belabored, and it lacks the resonance and power with which the best, most unfiltered passages of Lynch's work vibrate."
‑ Jake Euker, Filmcritic.com
