Editorial Reviews

From Oscar winner Cameron Crowe comes "a potent blend of rock 'n' roll and classic romantic comedy." Orlando Bloom stars as Drew Baylor, a hot-shot designer whose life becomes completely unraveled when he loses his father and his job on one fateful day. En route to Elizabethtown to visit his family, Drew meets Claire (Kirsten Dunst). She's beautiful, unstoppably positive, and just the gal to guide Drew on his journey back home and to teach him what it means to live and love along the way. Set against the backdrop of an incredible soundtrack, ELIZABETHTOWN is "an amazing trip of love, loss and laughter."

By Jesse on October 31, 2005
Loved this movie! And not just because it was filmed around my home town and state. But because it was everything I didn't expect and more.

Don't go seeing Elizabethtown for the full frontal assault of Jerry Maguire or Almost Famous. This one is subtle in the humor and long on thought. The plot is filled with pure Kentuckyiana that gives an insight into the characters. The characters ARE the plot, moving it along in a sweet, poignant adult "coming of age" story. The "suits" had a serious problem with this one because it can't be categorized. There were moments of touching sorrow but it's not a drama. There were moments of laughter, but it's not really a comedy. It's quirky and different. You'll laugh through your tears and cry through your laughing.

Someone complaining about the "lack of chemistry" between Bloom and Dunst didn't pay a whole lot of attention to things. The whole point of the love story is that it grows. That chemistry was played down until the end, as it should have been. The plot isn't about a man falling in love. It's about a man coming to grips with his past, his present, and his future. The love story is an evolutionary thing and takes a backseat to the real plot.

I truly enjoyed this movie. Cameron Crowe gave a unique perspective into the beauty of Kentucky, choosing NOT to show the usual horse farms and antebellum manses...but showing the mountains and the backroads of the state. Bloom is the right mix of sardonic and lost. Dunst offers the irritatingly perky flight attendant that shows a more rich personality later on. They meshed well together. Sarandon is a bloody hoot as the widow learning to cope with being alone. The tapestry of characters weaves a beautiful story that unfolds in layers. It'll leave you crying, laughing, and part of time well spent. I can't wait for this one to come out on DVD. I'll be first in line to purchase it.

Writer/Director Cameron Crowe's ("Say Anything...", "Singles," "Jerry Maguire", "Almost Famous", "Vanilla Sky") latest film met a painful death when it was released to theaters last fall. For a film that is undeniably non-controversial, it was a strangely polarizing film with one camp showering praise while its' detractors voiced seemingly endless complaints which ranged from performances, character's motivations, the film's meandering tone, to even the use of its' soundtrack. I am proudly placing myself in the first group. I have seen the film twice and while I don't think that this is a great film (or even my favorite Cameron Crowe film), it struck a profound chord with me that has remained months after seeing it. I feel that this film never had the chance it deserved and it was completely undervalued and unappreciated. Thanks to DVD, it has a second chance. I am not only anxious to see it again; I am graciously urging you to give this film a try.

The opening of the film recalls elements of "Jerry Maguire" (and to some extent, the darker tones of "Vanilla Sky") as we meet 27-year-old Drew Baylor (Orlando Bloom), an introverted shoe designer for a Nike-ish corporation. Drew is fired for designing a disastrous athletic shoe entitled the "Spasmotica" (envisioned to give the wearer the feeling of "walking on a cloud") and the failure of his eight years in the making design will potentially cost his company to lose 1 billion dollars. This fiasco additionally costs him his girlfriend and hours later, on the brink of committing suicide, he receives an urgent call from his sister (Judy Greer) informing him of their father's sudden death.

I LOVE the movie Elizabethtown! If you want to see a movie portraying a pie-in-the-sky family don't see this one. If you want to see a fast-paced movie don't see this one.

Some people have said Orlando Bloom's acting is flat, or lethargic. Wrong. Orlando has nailed his character once again proving he is a great actor more than just with costumes, swords, bows and arrows. He has just experienced a shocking, mind-blowing event in his life followed by finding out his Dad has just died. Emotion has not surfaced yet. Anyone who has experienced a similar life event can tell you there may not be emotion showing just yet. All that is seen is quietness and shock. His seemingly perfect life is unraveling. Then enters Claire.

Kirsten Dunst is PERFECT for this role and she performs it with spunk and irresistable charm.

The family portrayed in this movie is not perfect. Far from it. They are painfully real. Fathers and sons who don't see eye to eye. Children who are too busy living far away to make it home to see their relatives. Children who misbehave. Chaos and rocky relationships during family gatherings.

There are some words and phrases that could have been completely left out, one "F" word and one story during the funeral about a neighbor; completely pointless and not funny.

Humor is bountiful, the roadtrip is amazing, the tunes are incredible, it stirs the emotions. It was worth paying to see in the theatre and definitely worth buying. Watch it first or watch it with your kids, but not young ones.

Don't miss 60B! See Elizabethtown.
