Two 1990’s teenagers find themselves in a 1950’s sitcom where their influence begins to profoundly change that complacent world.
Due to the conceptual scope of the film's premise, it felt like a missed opportunity. However, its ideologically liberal conclusions are progressive enough for one to give it the benefit of the doubt.
Seemed promising but ultimately found it very dull.
I continue to have mixed feelings about this film. I watched it a few years ago and I still can't tell if I liked it or disliked it.
Once you get past the initial 1st act set up, the movie really opens up into something incredible. It's a grand statement about the wonder, complexity, and beauty of the world. A film that make me happy to be alive.
3.5 - First act was pretty bad, but the rest was really entertaining, despite the flaws.
Favorite movie as a kid, couldn't even understand half of it. Really fun.
Although heavy-handed messages bother me, this time it didn't annoy me at all.

7/10, my review: http://lasttimeisawdotcom.wordpress.com/2014/04/25/pleasantville1998/
comparing this to truman show is like comparing a fish to a motorcycle. you can do it but it's silly. okay movie nonetheless.
Good film but The Truman Show is smarter.
Just a fun film. Tried to not put my film student head on and just enjoy it.
The concept has so much potential. Pleasantville delivers, here and there, but fails to convey any real profundity.
Better than Truman Show
ok. i got the message
very strange and fascinating movie. it comes out somewhat quirky and pushes through with much wonder and tenderness. personal favorite
One of my guilty pleasures! Pleasantville is quite an experience; like a movie version of a coloring book.
I've always wanted to watch this when it first came out. Watching it as an adult I thought I wouldnt've liked it, but I did!
Randy Newman is an amazing film composer.
One of my many guilty pleasures :) -this film is basically my life long fantasy.
Let's play the simple Technicolor. :)
The ONLY film I can stand Tobey Maguire in. It's smart, witty & has a lot to say about "perfect" surburbia.
