Critic Reviews for Palm Beach
A less likeable group of actors could easily have been upstaged by the conspicuous perfection of the setting and the décor. This bunch hold their own, but a sharper script would have made them shine even brighter.
What makes the whole thing work is Ward's facility with performers, and the wrinkles that are threaded into plot points we've seen a million times before.
There's nothing conceptually wrong with dramas about affluence or affluent people of course, but boy does it take a while to feel even vaguely sympathetic to the troubles confronting Ward's characters.
This isn't so much a movie as a Venn diagram of working talent, cashing in their chips to have a good time together creating accessible entertainment.
Embarrassingly vapid ... a film that asks its audience to show "unfunded empathy" for the travails of ageing, bourgeois husbands and wives looks less like escapist fun and more like oblivious contempt.
