Miami Herald - Rene Rodriguez
In a larger sense, Adaptation is a movie about the simple act of enjoying life -- of really embracing it -- without constantly worrying about what others think.
Washington Post - Stephen Hunter
Surely the most creative trick of the year and grimly funny throughout.
Rolling Stone - Peter Travers
Screenwriting this smart, inventive, passionate and rip-roaringly funny is a rare species. It's magic.
Entertainment Weekly - Lisa Schwarzbaum
The notion of meta has never been diddled more mega than in this giddy Möbius strip of a movie, a contrivance so whizzy and clever that even when it tangles at the end, murked like swampy southwestern Florida itself, the stumble has quotation marks around it.
Salon - Andrew O'Hehir
A highly enjoyable failure, a quandary that can't resolve itself.
