Director: Ridley Scott
Writer: Marc Klein
A Good Year is a fine example of a top-notch director and actor out of their elements, in a sappy romantic comedy lacking in charm and humor.
On a rainy day, A Good Year may be welcome fantasy; the question is whether anyone will remember it after the clouds have parted.
Crowe, a superb dramatic actor, is congenitally incapable of humour, especially when he tries slapstick.
Russell Crowe has many talents, but a gift for light comedy is not one of them.
Tagline: Sometimes it takes a change of scenery to have a change of heart.
