Another case where snobby movie critics have it all wrong. Wicker Park is a great movie. I loved it. Rose Byrne's character and she herself was amazing in this film

This movie would have been more believable had it occurred 10 years prior when cell phones weren't as common. Most of the conflicts and misunderstandings could have been cleared up by a simple phone call. This movie really wasn't believable for that reason.

Given the number of negative reviews this received, you'd be forgiven for thinking that this has no positives to speak of. That is just not the case. Yes, it's convoluted and confusing, with its jumps in time and perspective, and there are implausible coincidences to try and force the story to in the direction it needs to go, but it's full of innovative visuals and charismatic performances that make it watchable if not riveting.

I saw this movie was on HBO or something of the sort and had never heard of it. It's kind of like some Kevin Costner movies- you never heard anything about it, but when you watch it, it's surprisingly good. It gets a little confusing, because there are flashbacks involved. I liked it a lot and thought it was a solid suspense movie...

Al principio es lenta, pero cuando se empieza a destapar la trama se vuelve interesante, las actuaciones con casuales, lo que más llama la atención es la historia.

I like the leads, but the story is too far-fetched and sappy for my tastes.

The love story at the center of this film is earnest and convincing. In the end, Wicker Park delivers on its promise despite stumbling a bit along the way.

Remake du film L'Appartement (1996)

The surplus number of flashbacks is the last thing this movie needed, right next to it's lack of plot.

Dire Drivel. It's so bad, I kept asking myself there must be a huge twist coming up Nope, it really was that dire. What a waste of John Hartnett.

I agree with the critics consensus. It was until almost the end that the storyline started to make any sense. The constant flashbacks added nothing but confusion. Filming it must have been atrocious and needlessly difficult.

Now to get to a further difficulty. Why must facebook be used as a log in. If I wanted to post on facebook, I'd do that. I probably won't be back to rotten tomatoes, because it's a rotten tomato for expecting commentators to only use facebook.

Demasiado mala. La original es una obra de arte. Ac las actuaciones son demasiado unidimensionales y planas... smele que el final es hollywoodesco. Una prueba de como hacer un psimo remake.

Those who expect a psychological mystery set in the backdrop of a romance will be most definitely disappointed as it's a romantic film with a non-linear narrative. I can't believe how dumb these critics complaining that this is convoluted, even a teenage kid can easily follow this. There are not many coincidences, but one or two may seem over the top. What makes Wicker Park is the emotional involvement of it's actors especially Josh Hartnett and Rose Byrne with both giving performances of intensity superior than what the film actually deserves. Wicker Park may feel to be on the down slope at times, but director Paul McGuigan manages to keep it afloat by it's non-linear narrative.

Wicker Park isn't trying to be a perfect film on the level of plot. Yes there are many holes, and yes the entire scenario could be resolved with a simple phone call on the part of its characters. But thematically, the film invites contemplation into important aspects of life: perspective, memory, obsession, love, and illusion. The how and to extent which people perceive and remember the world is fascinating, because it is always different. The extent to which our lives are dictated by coincidence and luck is disconcerting when we like to believe control is our ally. Perspective and memory shape the film as well as the character's lives: perspectives ricochet off one another and land in disparate parts of the world, while memory manifests non-linearly and often only in fleeting images, all of which the film beautifully captures.

The ubiquity of cameras and transparent surfaces (and materials) invites skepticism into the idea of reality. Mediated through all of these elements, as well as fantasy, the film denies tangibility and permanence, and points to the impermanence and intangibility of life and love. Nothing is what it seems. Everything is a projection, like an image onto a screen, like a fantasy onto a person. For all of these reasons, I return to Wicker Park yearly. I absolutely love it. (and so would Baudrillard I think:)

There is so many coincidences in this movie but as long as you pay attention to 'Wicker Park,' you'll understand it. This movie kept me interested throughout its run time because I wanted to know what was going to happen. At points it seemed confusing but in the end it all makes sense. 'Wicker Park' is a decent suspenseful drama that could be worth your time only if you're willing to be 100% attentive to all of it's twists and turns.

A story of obsessive love at first sight. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Fun Watch.

Hartnett is asked to do a lot here but he didn't write the script and that is the #1 thing wrong with this movie.
