Consensus: Despite its saucy setup and the always marvelous Helen Mirren, Love Ranch is disappointingly flaccid.

Kerry Lengel
Arizona Republic

Once Hackford has committed to the characters and to their compelling (if dark) world, he has nowhere to go but to some predecided facts that might not be the most interesting end to the characters' journey.

Try though she might, Mirren can't save the hackneyed and singularly unerotic story...

Overall, a complete misfire given the talent involved.

The only vaguely interesting aspect to this film is the subplot involving a past-his-prime Argentinian heavyweight owned by Charlie.

It starts flat and gets so tired.

The picture feels edited with a chainsaw, reducing Hackford's story of desire to crummy Lifetime Movie theatrics, wasting the numerous gifts of Helen Mirren along the way.

New York Observer

Even Helen Mirren on a bad day is better than nine out of ten American film queens polluting movie screens on any given Sunday, but really, this is one time she should have stayed in bed.

Stephen Holden
New York Times

Gives you only a superficial, clichéd picture of brothel life.

Nick Schager
Lessons of Darkness

A misbegotten jumble that clumsily synthesizes various incongruous elements.

Not one to pick up for Valentine's Day. This is the classic case of good actors going through the motions for a payday. Shame on Helen Mirren and Joe Pesci… More
