Total Score :

Max Nicholson, IGN Movies (Fri, Apr. 18)

The film nevertheless offers some enjoyable scenes and plenty of humorous dialogue between Turturro's florist-turned-Casanova and co-star Woody Allen's bumbling hustler.

Laura Clifford, Reeling Reviews (Fri, Apr. 18)

"Fading Gigolo's" dialogue, situations and jazz soundtrack all scream Woody Allen, but it's essential sweet sexiness is all Turturro.

Sara Maria Vizcarrondo, Movies With Butter (Fri, Apr. 18)

Manhattan's economy is forcing one florist's head down-and Woody Allen figures that head might as well land in a soft place.

Witney Seibold, Nerdist (Fri, Apr. 18)

Had Fading Gigolo been nothing but its romance scenes, it still would not be entirely successful, because it's strangely muted. There is a quietude to the romance that subtlety plays up the emotional stakes, but keeps us from being fully invested.

Bob Mondello, NPR (Fri, Apr. 18)

Turturro's direction owes a little something to Spike Lee, and a lot to Woody Allen.

Doris Toumarkine, Film Journal International (Fri, Apr. 18)

The result translates to questionable taste in its confrontations with matters of money, lust, love, men and women. Uneasy, even queasy feelings linger.

David Edelstein, Vulture (Fri, Apr. 18)

What puts Fading Gigolo over the top is the presence of Allen, who's just the sort of earthy, fast-talking foil the moony Turturro needs.

Brian Orndorf, Blu-ray.com (Fri, Apr. 18)

Always a pleasure to simply stare at, but it leaves much to be desired, with Turturro endeavoring to make the screen's first comedy that intentionally avoids comedy.

Glenn Kenny, RogerEbert.com (Fri, Apr. 18)

It's not really a home run, but as an aging urban dweller it hit some notes both antic and plangent for me. If you're a fan of any of the cast members it might well do the same for you.

Marshall Fine, Hollywood & Fine (Fri, Apr. 18)

A film that has laughs, heart, romance and several other things to recommend its unconventional charms.

Leonard Maltin, Leonard Maltin's Picks (Fri, Apr. 18)

"Fading Gigolo" is a sweet, bracingly original, wholly entertaining film from John Turturro with a plum part for none other than Woody Allen.

JimmyO, JoBlo's Movie Emporium (Thu, Apr. 17)

Not without its charms, this modern day Don Juan tale and his complicated relations fails to live up to promise of what could have been.

Manohla Dargis, New York Times (Thu, Apr. 17)

Mr. Turturro's musical choices in "Fading Gigolo" tend to feel, like so much here, generically applied instead of meaningfully coaxed from some essential, lived-in truth.

Rafer Guzman, Newsday (Thu, Apr. 17)

Turturro has many dots that he never connects here.

Michael Sragow, Orange County Register (Thu, Apr. 17)

This tall-tale New York comedy about a florist and a book dealer who become a prostitute and a pimp is so wispy that it's hit or miss and overlong at 90 minutes.

Claudia Puig, USA Today (Thu, Apr. 17)

A slight, comical and intermittently affecting film about loneliness and desire.

Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal (Thu, Apr. 17)

"Fading Gigolo" is almost retrograde enough to be daring, but the pace is tentative, the comedy is dull ...

Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News (Thu, Apr. 17)

For all its shortcomings, "Gigolo" knows when to turn on the charm.

Tony Medley, Tolucan Times (Thu, Apr. 17)

Woody can be annoying but never more so than here as his constant whining voice becomes as bad as fingernails across a blackboard muttering his way through while Turturro wanders around like he's in a daze.

Mike D'Angelo, The Dissolve (Thu, Apr. 17)

Sex is treated with goofy solemnity [...] and credible human behavior repeatedly gets tossed aside so that people do whatever is necessary to keep the ludicrous plot in motion.
