  • Critic Reviews of "The Rainmaker"


    June 09, 2008

    Coppola has never been particularly known for his comic touch, but here he seems bent on leavening the melodrama with as many laughs as possible, and they are generally honest and well-earned.

    Time Out

    February 09, 2006

    This competent, anonymous legal drama (scripted by Michael Herr) is the best John Grisham adaptation yet.

    San Francisco Chronicle

    June 18, 2002

    Coppola adapted the novel himself, and he's done a good job of paring it down.

    Los Angeles Times

    February 14, 2001

    Coppola has infused The Rainmaker with enough humor, character, honest emotion and storytelling style to make it one of the year's most entertaining movies.

    Chicago Sun-Times

    January 01, 2000

    Francis Ford Coppola, who wrote and directed the film, has made the most of Grisham's ground-level realism.


    January 01, 2000

    Satisfactory mainstream entertainment, with a handful of major actors in juicy minor roles tossed in for good measure.

    Combustible Celluloid

    The Rainmaker is easily the best of the Grisham movies so far, and it has touches of excellence, but it's a routine work.

    Reeling Reviews

    April 09, 2005

    It's an intelligent film that doesn't cater to the usual eye-candy we face during the holiday season and is one of the best adaptations of a Grisham novel.

    Looking Closer

    December 06, 2004

    The overbearing soundtrack, unimaginative cinematography, and indulgently tear-jerking ending ... this all adds up to a surprisingly derivative movie from Coppola.


    May 07, 2004

    A good example of a talented filmmaker making a small miracle out of a film that was destined for drowning in mediocrity.

    Ozus' World Movie Reviews

    February 06, 2004

    The Rainmaker aside from being competently made is not something that stands out for being fresh.

    Grisham and Coppola (who also adapted the story for the screen) attempt to show us a piece of life, and though the lesson is a bit heavy-handed at times, it does capture the fact that things just don't always work out perfectly in the end.
