Critic Reviews for The Stars Fell on Henrietta

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (4)

We know exactly where this film is headed, but director James Keach tells a slightly darker story than you might expect and delays the inevitable to the point of genuine entertainment.

The film lays meticulous groundwork for a payoff that never takes place. The last 20 minutes, which should deliver a big emotional punch, simply do not work.

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

Depicts the experiences of a down-and-out wildcat oilman who believes in hitching his wagon to a star.
