Entertainment Reviews:

Total Film - 11/01/2006
3 stars out of 5 -- "THE HISTORY BOYS is at its most moving in the quieter, more reflective moments..."
Premiere - 12/01/2006
3 stars out of 5 -- "THE HISTORY BOYS is a pretty grand and juicy entertainment....There's no one today writing English dialogue as sharp as Bennett's..."
Rolling Stone - 11/30/2006
3 stars out of 5 -- "Bennett's dialogue sparkles and skewers with killer wit. Dig in."
Box Office - 12/01/2006
"[G]iven flesh and substance by veteran dramatist Alan Bennett's witty and muscular way with dialogue."
New York Times - 11/21/2006
"[F]erociously engaging....The acting is wonderful. Mr. Moore's avid Irwin and Mr. Griffiths shambling Hector are matched by the extraordinary Frances de la Tour as Dorothy Lintott..."
Entertainment Weekly - 12/01/2006
"The movie adaptation has been lifted from the theater with original cast and director Nicholas Hytner intact; the actors interact as cozily as chums on a playing field..." -- Grade: B
Movieline's Hollywood Life - 11/01/2006
"THE HISTORY BOYS preserves some of the best writing to grace the theater in many years....The movie is highly entertaining."
Ultimate DVD - 03/01/2007
4 stars out of 5 -- "THE HISTORY BOYS is an exhilarating experience; one that delivers the vivid pyrotechnics of language, and challenges the intellect..."
