Inattentive film critics


“Audrey Rouget” in “Metropolitan” (1990)

From here.

The Kids Stay In The Picture: Whit Stillman

Not a bad review but it has the usual silly errors.

“Audrey Rouget … begins the movie in tears after her brother insults her brand-new dress …”

(No. He makes fun of her “huge” bottom.)

“They … compare private educations …”

(No. They don’t.)

“Nick Smith … doesn’t take it all too seriously …”

(Yes. He does.)

“Unlike the rest, Tom is middle-class …”

(No. He is upper class too. His father has left his mother and his circumstances are reduced.)
