Boston Globe
The pieces don't always fit together smoothly, but there's a lot of flavorful work to savor.

Charlotte Observer
Tries with intermittent success to juggle two stories.

Dallas Observer
Feels like two films that aren't closely related enough, either tonally or narratively, to warrant their intertwining.

There's much to enjoy here as long as your expectations aren't too high.

An Almodovar-like blend of laughs, drama and uplift, filled with the kinds of pop-art colors and pop-out performances that Almodovar loves.

Miami Herald
Inadvertently does with the civil rights movement exactly what Banderas set out not to do: trivializes it.

New York Daily News
Mismatch of tone and material.

USA Today
Were some group to launch a rival to the Oscars called The Wackys, it could do worse than make crazed Crazy its first recipient.

Rolling Stone
Somehow, Lucille's plight is meant to comment astutely on the civil-rights movement. Now that IS crazy.

L.A. Weekly
The two disparate yet thematically linked storylines are far too faithfully transposed for a feature-length treatment -- crammed together, they're denied the space to flesh out as a cohesive whole.
