Lee delivers an entertaining light comedy about a real-life person who somewhat inadvertently helped the whole iconic concert to take place.
Hollywood Reporter
May 16, 2009
It's as adventurous a film as Lee has ever made, utilizing split-screens, zoom lenses, kinetic slides in the mud, astonishingly long DeMillian takes featuring hundreds of stalled cars and a cast of thousands...

Rating: 1/4 -- Taking Woodstock simply doesn't capture the spirit of a very spirited time. Full Review
Washington Times

“Lee makes a series of fascinating choices in TAKING WOODSTOCK, starting with the decision not to film Woodstock, the concert....He's managed to make a moving that, for all its sweetness, is surprisingly subversive.”
Washington Post
Aug 28, 2009
3 stars out of 5 -- [A] gentle, anecdotal comedy that has oodles of nostalgic charm, as the locals of the Catskills find themselves swept up in an event whose transformative power changed a generation.
Box Office
May 18, 2009
Taking Woodstock is entertaining, funny but also very slight film. Unlike the real Woodstock, it won't change lives or burn in the memory.

Rating: 2.5/5 -- At no point did I feel like I was at Woodstock and surely that was the whole point. Full Review
