Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Very Good ...there's no denying the film's power of compulsion and the sense that, when it's all over, it means something. Most viewers will be entertained and moved, and some will find their intellect aroused.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Above Average 'The Curious Case of Benjamin Button' is a splendidly made film based on a profoundly mistaken premise.

USA Today Full Review
Good The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is worth seeing just for the superb prosthetic makeup and seamless computer-generated effects in which Pitt's head is digitally imposed onto older bodies.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
"I was born under unusual circumstances.”

And so begins "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” adapted from the 1920s story by F. Scott Fitzgerald about a man who is born in his eighties and ages backwards: A man, like any of us, who is unable to stop time. From New Orleans at the end of World War I in 1918, into the 21st century, on a journey as unusual as any man's life can be, the film tells the grand tale of a not so ordinary man and the people and places he discovers along the way, the loves he finds and loses, the joys of life and the sadness of death, and what lasts beyond time.
