Critic Reviews for Scenes from a Mall

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (8)

Paul Mazursky's 14th film as director is a cozy, insular middle-aged marital comedy that's about as deep and rewarding as a day of mall-cruising.

March 23, 2009 | Full Review…

Mazursky has returned with a vengeance to his special universe where the upper middle class is the only thing that exists, and this time he has absolutely nothing to say about it.

March 23, 2009 | Full Review…

Allen's admittedly funny lines get lost in the mess, and Midler, in relatively restrained mode, fades away altogether.

June 24, 2006 | Full Review…

Scenes From a Mall is a peculiar but, finally, very engaging comedy.

May 20, 2003 | Rating: 3/5

A close-up look at a couple's painful catharsis so well wedded to marital discord it's like going through a divorce with yourself.

January 1, 2000 | Full Review…

When a movie seems overflowing with interesting, colorful details, that is often a sign of desperation -- a way of saying, if the picture's no good, get a gaudier frame.

Audience Reviews for Scenes from a Mall


I may have had some fun watching it (I did laugh a few times), but not even a day later I realized I was incapable of remembering most of what I had seen (including the ending), which is a clear indication of how forgettable, lackluster and harmless this little comedy is.
