  • Critic Reviews of "The Thing Called Love"

    March 26, 2009

    Perhaps there's not much new to say about the dues and disappointments involved in breaking into the country music scene, but the scenes are fresh and the emotions real in Peter Bogdanovich's tune-laden, mixed-mood drama.

    Time Out
    February 09, 2006

    Bogdanovich's modest staging is occasionally awkward -- his kids still watch John Wayne movies at the drive-in -- but there's a convincing sense of what Nashville's like and how country music works.

    New York Times
    August 30, 2004

    Although well acted, with early scenes that deftly sketch the atmosphere, the movie, written by Carol Heikkinen, never takes off.

    Chicago Reader

    It bears as little relation to the real Nashville as Altman's 1975 feature, but director Peter Bogdanovich, the talented cast, and the credited and uncredited screenwriters are so busy conjuring up a charming world of their own that I didn't mind.

    Chicago Sun-Times
    January 01, 2000

    Perhaps no one could have saved Phoenix, who was not lucky enough to find a higher bottom than death. But this performance in this movie should have been seen by someone as a cry for help.

    A star is born in Nashville.

    Peter Bogdanovich brings conviction but little else to this upbeat response to Robert Altman's Nashville.
    April 08, 2006

    It's good enough to watch, but not good enough to re-watch.

    Combustible Celluloid
    April 06, 2006

    Nothing terribly new happens here, but Bogdanovich plays out his scenes with tenderness and affection, and the honest performances spring to life.

    The Thing Called Love charms and touches.
    January 12, 2006

    It's so sad that Phoenix went out not with a bang but with this whimper.
