Never stooping to sentimentality or schmaltz, Anderson and cowriter Owen Wilson have fashioned a wickedly intelligent and wildly funny tale of young adulthood that hits all the right notes in its mix of melancholy and optimism. As played by Schwartzman, Max is both immediately endearing and ferociously irritating: smarter than all the adults around him, with little sense of his shortcomings, he's an unstoppable dynamo who commands grudging respect despite his outlandish projects (including a school play about Vietnam). Murray, as the tycoon who determinedly wages war with Max for the affections of Miss Cross, is a revelation of middle-aged resignation. Disgusted with his family, his life, and himself, he's turned around by both Max's antagonism and Miss Cross's love. Williams is equally affecting as the teacher who still carries a torch for her dead husband, and the superb supporting cast also includes Seymour Cassel as Max's barber father, Brian Cox as the frustrated headmaster of Rushmore, and a hilarious Mason Gamble as Max's young charge. Put this one on your shelf of modern masterpieces. --Mark Englehart
Rushmore, the sophomore effort of brilliant writer/director Wes Anderson is a really good film.
The best thing I can say about this movie is that most people will see a bit of themselves and the people they know in the characters.
Wes Anderson makes beautifully funny movies, with great characters and cinematography, and perfect soundtracks.
Brilliant!! My favorite Wes Anderson movie and fav Bill Murray performance. The soundtrack is great too.Published 1 hour ago by BathtubWhale

A bit offbeat but good for all but the most rigid movie goers. It was a great movie the first time I saw it and continues feel fresh despite its age as all of the Anderson films... Read morePublished 2 months ago by Michael J Borger
