What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Nils van der Linden For all its scope, emotion and unusual narrative, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button has no more lasting impact than your average romantic drama.
Natalie Bosman The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button is not to be missed, even if only to see Pitt and Blanchett at their absolute best.
Ivan Sadler Rarely has such an assemblage of talent produced such a tedious, lacklustre disappointment.
|Chicago Sunday Times|

James Berardinelli Despite some minor flaws, it is undeniably engrossing and one of the more intriguing and emotionally resonant features of the 2008 holiday season.
C. Fuchs Interesting and captivating tale that's well-told and will likely earn its fair share of award nominations.
