Reviews


50
The A.V. Club - Caroline Siede
Hall has taken away the brittle wit of Coward’s source material and replaced it with little other than some fun performances in search of a better movie.
40
Empire - Unnamed
This Blithe Spirit dilutes the original’s heady cocktail, serving up a sugary punch rather than a dry martini.
40
The Observer (UK) - Simran Hans
The impish Leslie Mann is well cast as his dead wife, Elvira, who provides a jolt of creative inspiration. Judi Dench’s screechy caricature of psychic Madame Arcati is less winning.
40
Los Angeles Times - Katie Walsh
Any trenchant observations to be found in this Blithe Spirit only pop and fizz into thin air like Champagne bubbles. Though effervescent, it’s a bit too ethereal for its own good.
30
Screen Daily - Wendy Ide
Coward’s brand of urbane casual elitism is rather past its sell-by date. But the problems run deeper in this energetic but scattershot version of a property which might have been best left to rest in peace.
