Why was this so critically derided?
Has a 65% on RT, and I think Siskel and Ebert gave it a thumbs down. Yet the audience score on RT is 87%, has a 7.5 on IMDB, as well as winning the PalmD'or and getting a best picture NOM. So what gives, were these critics just following standard protocol of praising a director's previously acclaimed work, and then lambasting their next picture no matter the quality?
