Movie Info

Claire Goldstein (Alicia Witt) is a 23-year old classical pianist and student in San Francisco who gets dumped by a boyfriend, is evicted from her home following an earthquake and rejected by a major music competition, and becomes romantically involved with a charming two-timer (Ivan Sergei). But her troubles are just starting: she's forced to move back in with her parents (Elliott Gould and Marlo Thomas) while she attempts to make an emotional recovery from all the sudden turmoil. But the spiral continues downward, and before long she's even disappointed her faithful teacher, Bennett (Harvey Fierstein). Can Claire be redeemed?

Critic Reviews for Playing Mona Lisa

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (2)

Funny movie for older teens.

January 1, 2011 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

A lesson in remedial Chick-Flick 101 ... Every tired convention is readily evident in the first and last five minutes of this film - and in every minute in-between

June 16, 2003 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review… due mostly to Alicia Witt's winning lead performance.

February 24, 2003 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Icky, unfunny comedy.

December 8, 2002 | Rating: 1.5/5

Devoid of almost any comedic energy.
