  1. Philippe P. Marchetti's rating of the film The Paperboy

  2. FISCHER's rating of the film The Paperboy

    On peut affirmer, sans trop se tromper, que la plantureuse Nicole Kidman a dû fort s'amuser dans l'interprétation de son étonnant rôle de femelle lascive et grivoise, aux démonstratives performances buccales et aux humides remèdes contre les piqures de méduses, dans une oeuvre fort bancale qui s'enlise souvent, avec constance et redondance, dans les marécages de la vulgarité facile... www.cinefiches.com

  7. J. O.'s rating of the film The Paperboy

    It's possible I'll give it a second chance some day, but I couldn't make it through more than a half hour.

  9. Mitch's rating of the film The Paperboy

    Black people and white people share violent orgasms in the abyss.

  10. Scienceofphantoms's rating of the film The Paperboy

    Girls, we've been sitting on this for far too long. Every scene drips with sex and sweat. And ensemble acting doesn't get much better than this. If this failed to click with critics when it arrived, it's because people didn't vibe with camp being delivered side by side with the grotesque. Welcome to the Southern Gothic, baby.

  11. athens.ka's rating of the film The Paperboy

    really bad..i felt there was no continuity..

  12. Mtume Gant's rating of the film The Paperboy

    Strange film by Lee Daniels that in some ways works and gives the impression he may not be a total fool but same time is stitched with his odd perversions. Nicole Kidman is quite good in this though, but Im not surprised she can often give solid acting performances

  13. mjgildea's rating of the film The Paperboy

    1 1/2 out of 5 stars. I can give The Paperboy credit for some great (a mesmerizing Kidman) and even over-the-top (Cusack) performances but the storytelling was pure, disjointed shit. Macy Gray's lazy, deadbeat narration was as distracting as it was annoying and the movie tried to be disturbing and skeevy just for its own sake. While The Paperboy looked great its still nothing short of a fucking mess.

  14. Lorna Singh's rating of the film The Paperboy

    A waste of a talented cast.For such actors to sign on,the script must have been promising. But it fails as suspense,character study and drama. A violent mess.

  15. Carlos Filipe Freitas's rating of the film The Paperboy

    “The Paperboy” was too ambitious and contrived, never reaching a sufficient level of stability. Full Review and Rating: http://alwayswatchgoodmovies.blogspot.com/2013/01/the-paperboy-2012.html

  16. dschank's rating of the film The Paperboy

    having just watched "precious" i thought i'd give this a go. and now i'm confused... is lee daniels an admirable, sadistic eccentric or an opportunist who just made a john waters movie by accident?

  17. Ben 94's rating of the film The Paperboy

    In Competition, Cannes ??? The next Antichrist, Brown Bunny, Kinatay, Southland Tales, L'avventura...

  18. lilmissdella's rating of the film The Paperboy

    Its visuals and cinematography were striking and stylishly gritty; Kidman, McCounaghey and Cusack were exceptional- yet the plot were uneven and blotchy here and there to make it a really satisfying movie.

  19. Johnny's rating of the film The Paperboy

    God damn, I can't stop thinking about Nicole Kidman's performance. She rocked this movie.

  20. Algitya's rating of the film The Paperboy

    Is this that necessary ?

  21. jimmymarkum's rating of the film The Paperboy

    A butt-naked Matthew McConaughey. John Cusack's hairstyle and everything. Trashie-blondie-groupie Nicole Kidman and whatever happens to Zack Efron after being bitten by jellyfish. With the cult movies days now over, at least this should become a camp classic

  22. Matt Richards's rating of the film The Paperboy

    What it lacks in story-telling panache, it makes up for with visceral production design, lewd and wonderfully flawed characters and a nice final twist. Kidman and Cusack's first scene together is immediately arresting and fresh. Macy also puts in a fine performance yet the use of voice-over is distracting and unnecessary. 3 stars

  23. Justin Vicari's rating of the film The Paperboy

    Fresh and inspired. Macy Gray is ace, Kidman is generous, Cusack is nasty as heck, Efron is a feast for my eyes anyway. It's so well made it slips its bitter kernel down your throat like honey. The whites are perverse and doomed; the blacks are biding their time. Any move Daniels made after this was bound to be too safe, and The Butler has "safe" written all over it. Maybe his next one will be edgy again.

  24. melimoi's rating of the film The Paperboy

    For a film entitled The Paperboy, it isn't giving much depth to said "paperboy"... Great cast though.
