Rolling Stone "...Mr. Cage and Mr. Jonze share a casual, daredevil sensibility, and the two of them -- or should I say the three of them? -- pull off one of the most amazing technical stunts in recent film history..." New York Times "...Cage gives one of his best performances..."USA Today "...[Featuring] Nicolas Cage in his lightest, loosest, best performance since MOONSTRUCK....ADAPTATION demonstrates that Kaufman, the real Charlie Kaufman, has a rare and really weird talent....The guy is fun..."

"Krasinski's 'baby stroller blow-up' is acted with genuine anarchic spirit, and Rudolph gets a nice monologue under an orange tree toward the film's end."Film Comment "[The] production values have a nice, grassroots texture, including Ellen Kuras' cinematography and John Dunn's costume design..."Hollywood Reporter 3 stars out of 5 -- "[Rudolph] gives a wonderful turn that is certainly the best work of her career."Box Office "Krasinski and Rudolph do their honest best to play it like a shabbier, less symmetrical Wes Anderson.
