An original and very enjoyable film full of imagination. Bill Murray really makes the movie, but Wes Anderson's excellent direction gave the movie its style. Not recommended for everyone, but I can say that I liked it quite a bit.
A very good and well made film. Probably not to everyone,s liking but that just makes it even better.
Terrible movie would not recommend but well that's my through
Has to be close to the top of the list of the worst movies I have ever seen. Kept falling asleep waiting for something to happen. If anything did happen, I didn't understand it.
Pity, cause I usually love Bill Murray.
Despite a good cast, this movie was so bad I didn't watch it all. Save yourself the agony and give it a miss.
My only disappointment in this film is that i watched it alone. Film making that pleases all the required senses.
One of those movies that tries to be different and wacky but ends up being just tedious. What was the director thinking? 2.5 stars
Well thought out, gorgeous soundtrack, and some fantastic acting from all involved.
The lo-fi special effects add to the charming nature of the movie, and Bill Murray's performance in the title role is in a similar vein, quality wise, as his outstanding Lost In Translation performance.
I just could not get into this movie. I thought was boring and completely devoid of any humor.
I kept falling asleep, but everyone else had mixed emotions about it; either thought it was funny or was borring.
I really liked this film, Wes Anderson is a very interesting filmaker. A smart, subtle, funny and warm drama with a terrific cast. if you have ever watched a Jacques Costou doco you will get a laugh and if you like warm, quirky drama you will like this. It is lovely to look at, the underwater scenes are beautiful and the relationships between the characters are a little left of centre but very believable. Bill Murray is wonderful as Steve Zissou, the patriarch of a dysfunctional crew, no other actor could pull this part off. The cast is great, special mention to the classy Anjelica Huston. But the strength of the film is Wes Anderson's vision, his great understanding of human nature and what makes a family. It also has an awesome soundtrack of Bowie covers by Seu George
Who wrote this script? Horrible!
what a waste of time for such a well known cast.
If you want to be bored this is the movie for you. I watched it all the way through waiting for it to start.
A unique little film that (while slightly odd) manages to be quite enjoyable.
This is a strange and unusual film but worth watching if you want something different. You will go through a variety of emotions when you watch this one, it is not what you would expect from a Bill Murray film.
not a bad movie but not my taste
really stupid movie. Big name cast in a big looser of a movie
Loved the entire cast and the way they interacted. A total enjoyable movie.
Bill Murray seemed out of place and unsuited to this type of role. Would not recommend this movie because of that fact plus the story jumped, and wasn't credible.
An absolute waste of time. Boring, unfunny and a big yawn. And I spent the first 45 minutes of this film WANTING to like it.
My husband went to sleep in the first 30 mins and I thought it was garbage.What a waste of some good actors!
Initially engaging, but ultimately directionless. Nice cinematography.
I fell asleep. Partner FFWD through to see if it got any better. It didn't.
Absolutely inspired. Practically perfect in all ways, including the David Bowie covers on acoustic guitar. Has to be one of my favourite films of all time,
Sorry, but this movie is an insult to Bill Murray. Imbecilic plot and unfunny laugh lines. Boring, boring, boring.
If there was a category for stoner movies, this one would definitly be up there. Otherwise, this movie was a bit too quirky for its own good . I dont recommend watching it if you have something more important to do at the time.
Very strange. Anyone considering should think Royal Tenenbaums but much odder and with almost no character chemistry. Definitely not Groundhog Day! Owen Wilson acts terribly in this. Very cute but does he have any acting range at all?
All style, no heart, terrible.
I was disappointed with this. It was not a bad movie, quite the opposite, but great it was not. I guess I expected more after all the hype.
If you liked Rushmore, you'll love it.
Not whimsical, just awful.
Brilliant film. Quirky beautiful and touching, the Life Aquatic is a master piece. If you aren't familiar with Wes Andersons work, or have been put off by some of his other films, this is a great bit of cinema that shows just how brilliant he is as a director.
