Critic Reviews for These Foolish Things

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (2)

For much of the way, These Foolish Things not only drips with catty dialogue, it fairly overflows, so much so that you half wonder if it's meant to be a satire. Alas, no.

Tiresome. Even those who relish a good backstage drama may have trouble caring.
