James Berardinelli, Internet Critic  Full Review
Above Average "..however good the book may be, the movie conversion cannot be considered better than mediocre. There are problems with pacing and tone, but the biggest flaw is the script. Robert Nelson Jacobs' adaptation is far from seamless - even a casual viewer will recognize that there's more going on with these characters than what we see on screen. It's as if significant chunks of their lives are being hidden from us, resulting in a frustrating desire to see more than what the movie gives us.''

Roger Ebert  Full Review
Average "The movie makes good use of the magnificent locations and abundant use of water; even the movie itself seems damp a lot of the time. I liked the feeling of community in the town, the palpable sense of place. But, lord, the characters are tireless in their peculiarities; it's as if the movie took the most colorful folks in Lake Wobegon, dehydrated them, concentrated the granules, shipped them to Newfoundland, reconstituted them with Molson's and issued them Canadian passports.''

USA TODAY  Full Review
Average "The Shipping News moves at a glacial pace, much like the icy land it's set in. And even a top-notch cast can't warm up the atmosphere.  The remote Canadian island seems more alive than any character, with its severe, desolate beauty effectively captured by cinematographer Oliver Stapleton (who last teamed up with Hallstrom on The Cider House Rules)''

TV Guide Online  Full Review
Average "Though generally well acted, this film has all the unfortunate earmarks of a "quality" adaptation of an acclaimed novel. It's crammed with characters who never quite amount to more than the sum of their eccentricities, embellished with exotic detail, flashbacks and harshly beautiful vistas, the eye-candy equivalents of literary language. But everything has a fusty, embalmed quality: Whatever gave the novel its vitality has been smothered.''

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
When Quoyle, a hapless, lonely upstate New Yorker, loses his estranged wife (Gate Blanchett) in a car accident, his life changes forever. Stricken with grief and longing, he retreats with his aunt (Judi Dench) and young daughter (Alyssa, Kaitlyn and Lauren Gainer) to Newfoundland, the mysterious home of his ancestors.

In the small fishing outport of Killick-Claw, Quoyle secures a job as a reporter at the local newspaper, The Gammy Bird. With each article he writes, Quoyle's sense of this quirky community sharpens, along with his sense of himself. Gradually, a romance develops with Wavey (Julianne Moore), a woman who lives with her own personal demons. As his new life unfolds in Newfoundland — a place of magic, uncompromising beauty and hardship— his past melds with his present and Quoyle is transformed.
