Critic Reviews of "Mr. Nice"Los Angeles TimesSeptember 11, 2011
Though the film takes a while to cast its spell, writer-director-cinematographer Bernard Rose's close observation of Marks and those around him becomes increasingly involving and allows Rose to comment on the widespread failure of the war on drugs.Washington PostSeptember 09, 2011
The writer-director tells the story with verve and small-budget ingenuity.Boston GlobeSeptember 08, 2011
Ifans looks 20 years too old for the part, and the problem with the movie is it seems so desperate to be made that it barely cares that he spends half of his time miscast.St. Louis Post-DispatchJuly 29, 2011
[Ifans] captures the character's charisma and cool, and it's fun to ride shotgun with him. But the script isn't pointed enough to drill beneath the surface.San Francisco ChronicleJune 30, 2011
Effortlessly captures the looks, attitudes and the various mentalities of the period from the late 1960s and early 1970s, through the transition from the hippie era into the Studio 54 days, followed by the Just-Say-No retrenchment of the 1980s.Entertainment WeeklyJune 15, 2011
Writer-director Bernard Rose lets the picture bop along a little too loosely, but the vibes are good.St. Paul Pioneer PressSeptember 29, 2011
I'd recommend the similar "Blow" first, and I didn't even like that movie much.Washington City PaperSeptember 12, 2011
Overly relying on narration, Mr. Nice tells much more than it shows.Boston PhoenixSeptember 07, 2011
Ultimately, Mr. Nice doesn't transcend its genre, but the title character is a bright addition to the cinematic rogues' gallery of charmers for whom the real high isn't the drugs or the cash, but the con.OregonianJuly 14, 2011
Marks may be a gas as a storyteller, but there's a long way between a string of anecdotes and an actual narrative film. And "Mr. Nice," for all its energy, doesn't make the transition.East Bay ExpressJuly 01, 2011
We're always ready to accept Ifans as a hedonistic daredevil.Paste MagazineJune 10, 2011
what Mr. Nice offers is a stylish and fascinating biography that, while perhaps playing loose with the facts, knows that it's far more entertaining to watch the highs than the lows.
