Jared Cowan’s review:
THE PEOPLE VS. LARRY FLYNT is another superb bio pic from Milos Forman, the director of AMADEUS. The writers of ED WOOD, Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski, create a wonderfully rich story, which depicts the life of the porn giant to be full of humor, tragedy, and passion. Forman has a knack for directing this excellent ensemble cast, much like he did with ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST. Woody Harrelson and Edward Norton are excellent in their roles, which really is no surprise. However, the surprise comes form the stand-out performance by Courtney Love as Flynt's wife, Althea. The great ensemble cast also includes Crispin Glover, James Cromwell, James Carville, Vincent Schiavelli, and a cameo by Flynt himself. A way to describe THE PEOPLE VS. LARRY FLYNT is BOOGIE NIGHTS meets AMADEUS. Just a fantastic film that I could watch over and over.
