Disappointing - Mona Lisa Smile review by Swambi

Spoiler Alert
28/07/2005

I was disappointed - there seemed to be a big budget, and Julia Roberts acted her heart out. However, this was a film where I never felt convinced or involved - possibly the whole exagerated caricature of 1950's aspirations was partly responsible for this.

A poor clone of Dead Poets Society - Mona Lisa Smile review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
03/12/2005

There isn't much original about 'Mona Lisa Smile' at all. The story of 'a good hearted yet radical and initially misunderstood teacher trying to make a difference to the lives of troubled students, all the while battling the conservative school establishment' has been done many a time before, and it's pretty obvious that 'Mona Lisa Smile' is not much more than a feminist version of 'Dead Poets Society'. But everything that made 'Dead Poets Society' a great film, the agony of being a teenager and living with parental expectations, is sadly lacking in this film. What you are left with is a rather pedestrian, by the numbers film that thinks it has a powerful message to tell, but in the end fails miserably.
