All Critics (146) | Top Critics (54)

While Fading Gigolo has potential, the delivery makes it a wholly frustrating watch.

September 1, 2017 | Rating: D+ | Full Review…

If you can get beyond the implausibility of Sharon Stone paying John Turturro to join her in a ménage à trois - and, frankly, I couldn't - then there are lightweight pleasures to be had amid the wry, angsty middle-aged male fantasy.

May 26, 2014 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It would be misleading to suggest that the film falls into the so-bad-it's-good category. But a degree of obscure pleasure can be derived from the wrong-headedness of everything about it.

May 23, 2014 | Full Review…

Taken as a whimsical but fiery romantic comedy, it has easily enough charm to get away with its own idiosyncrasies.

The script rings false from the off.

May 23, 2014 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

The preposterousness of this plot marks Fading Gigolo as a vanity project, but it's hard to take Turturro too much to task when he hits so many other grace notes in between blowing his own horn.

Audience Reviews for Fading Gigolo

Despite its good moments - and there really are a handful of them, largely thanks to the presence of Woody Allen -, this average comedy is so harmless in many ways that even its sweet message about loneliness and connection gets diluted by how perfunctory the plot is.

The writing and tone of Fading Gigolo is too uneven to make for a coherent, admirable film. The plot awkwardly shifts from melodrama to sexual comedy with no real justification. There are elements of the film that could have worked if the filmmakers had chosen one specific tone or message as opposed to several very different ones.

A wonderfully compelling an enjoyable comedy with a great cast. John Turturro truly embraces his material he conceived with a heartfelt performance and solid direction. Woody Allen is excellent.
