O que se diz lá fora acerca de THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON:
«Given the resources and talent here, quite a movie might have resulted. But it's so hard to care about this story. There is no lesson to be learned. No catharsis is possible.»
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times.
«An extravagantly ambitious movie that's easy to admire but a challenge to love.»
Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly.
«Many may see this as a more grown-up version of FORREST GUMP, but it feels to me like something from the pen of Charlie Kaufman, who enjoys playing with time and conventions in much the way Fincher and Roth do here.»
James Berardinelli, ReelViews.
«Though Hollywood suits have been trying to make it for decades, "THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON" is not a project that cries out to be filmed. Now that it's finally been turned into a major motion picture, complete with megawatt stars Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett, you have to wonder why everyone bothered.»
Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times.
«THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON [...], is a slender piece of whimsy, a charming fantasy about a man who ages in reverse, descending through the years from newborn senescence to terminal infancy.»
A.O. Scott, New York Times.
