"...FLAWLESS is a personal and meaningful work that takes Schumacher back to his New York roots of the '60's & 70's..."
Entertainment Weekly - 12/03/1999
"...Schumacher does his most jovial and humane work in years....As long as Hoffman and De Niro are acting out, it's a light-fingered charmer..." -- Rating: B+
Box Office - 02/01/2000
"...De Niro confirms his talent....[Hoffman] proves a powerful peer for his macho co-star, even in stiletto heels..."
Los Angeles Times - 11/24/1999
"...De Niro and Hoffman are at once amusing and moving, and the result is a lively entertainment that manages some deft consciousness-raising..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 11/24/1999
"...De Niro is a great technical actor....[Hoffman] shows he's one of the best new character actors, able to take a flamboyant role and find the quiet details in it..."
The story of Walt Koontz (De Niro), a bitter, homophobic security guard who suffers a stroke that leaves him partially paralyzed. Depressed and suicidal over his slurred speech and awkward limp, he eventually breaks down and asks a neighbor for singing lessons. The neighbor, an unglamorous drag artist named Rusty (Hoffman), is as uncomfortable and disgusted with Koontz's bitter demeanor as Koontz is with Rusty's lifestyle. Hoffman proves that he is one of the finest character actors currently working in films. FLAWLESS is a nice change of pace for Schumacher (BATMAN FOREVER, THE LOST BOYS).
