Critic Reviews for Trixie

All Critics (50) | Top Critics (15)

Despite a star cast (Nick Nolte, Emily Watson), Rudolph's comedy-mystery is a minor, trivial film that tries to be whimsical but lacks humor or fresh angle on the Hollywood's cherished genres of noir and screwball.

The script is ridiculous and the direction inept.

January 1, 2000

It's not a success, but it's a closed mist, and kind of fun in its own ways and means.

January 1, 2000 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

In a strange sort of way, this is Dumb and Dumber for the art-house crowd.

January 1, 2000 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

A handsome, well-designed film typical of Rudolph.

January 1, 2000 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

The movie is as overlong and undermotivated as it is absentmindedly incoherent.

Audience Reviews for Trixie


What were they thinking when they made this movie? There's not enough action in this to make it an action movie, not enough character development to make it a character movie, not enough fun to make it a comedy. It's barely got enough plot to make it a movie at all, but only barely. The dialogues are mostly tedious, the malapropisms are not funny, and the red herrings are fishy. Emily Watson gets a couple of points for cuteness, but cuteness doesn't make a movie. A major disappointment. Alan Rudolph has done much better than this.
