  • Critic Reviews of "The Front Page"

    Time Out
    January 26, 2006

    It relies too much on foul language, inappropriate slapstick, and superficial cynicism.

    New York Times
    January 01, 2000

    Even though the mechanics and demands of movie-making slow what should be the furious tempo, this Front Page displays a giddy bitterness that is rare in any films except those of Mr. Wilder. It is also, much of the time, extremely funny.

    February 22, 2012

    This third version of the 1928 smash play is only mildly entertaining; Billy Wilder has no new take on the text and his stars may be too old.

    Full of wonderful comedic business, throw-away lines and some effortless ensemble set pieces, The Front Page bristles with its collection of talents on both sides of the camera.... It's that Billy Wilder touch of hurtful grains of truth inside every com

    August 14, 2007

    This slick remake of the ebullient original falls short of being the film it could have been, despite the presence of master filmmaker Wilder and his engaging costars.

    March 16, 2007

    Too much of it seemed stretched thin and unfunny.
    March 17, 2006

    Funny retelling with Lemmon and Matthau guided by Billy Wilder.
    July 09, 2005

    not up to the original

    May 24, 2003

    Matthau and Lemmon put in their usual faultless turns, but cannot lift a pervading air of pointlessness.

    It bombed then. It looks better now, but it's still a distant third in films of the play
    July 25, 2002

    Not the finest adaptation of the oft-visited source material, but hey, it's Wilder, Lemmon, and Matthau!
    January 01, 2000

    It drags in the middle, but a good first act and a stellar finale make the movie completely worthwhile.
