We need no further proof that this material is ageless.
Janet Maslin — New York Times
The movie is good fun, boasting a dozen vivid characters and two that moviegoers will take to heart.
Mike Clark — USA Today
Demonstrates how little humankind has evolved in matters of the heart.

The film is packed with pleasing performances by stage-trained actors.

Sense and Sensibility is an enjoyable film, and yet it left me somehow unsatisfied.
Roger Ebert — Chicago Sun-Times
I can't say I remembered this 1995 feature too clearly a couple of days later; but I certainly had a good time as I watched it.
Jonathan Rosenbaum — Chicago Reader
Susan Stark — Detroit News
Thompson's script manages the neat trick of preserving the necessary niceties and decorum of civilized behavior of the time while still cutting to the dramatic quick.
Todd McCarthy — Variety
Sense and Sensibility is funny, expansive, and a delight to spend company with.
Bruce Reid — Film.com
A triumph for Taiwan's most famous director, Ang Lee.
John Hartl — Film.com
Thompson's script hits its peak by keeping Austen's voice yet finding the satirical smirk behind it.
Sean Means — Film.com
Told with deft skill and a pleasantly humorous romantic touch.
James Berardinelli — ReelViews
The sensibility may be a bit off, but there is more than enough sense involved in this mid-Atlantic Austen to make up the difference.
Kenneth Turan — Los Angeles Times
A lush and witty telling of Jane Austen's novel.
Ellen MacKay — Common Sense Media
A stylish, witty and substantial adaptation of Jane Austen's novel.

For once, Thompson turns in a gimmick-free performance, and the rest of the actors range from fine to fabulous.
Dean Essner — TV Guide's Movie Guide
A little funny, a bit sad, an all-around entertaining.
Michael Dequina — Film Threat
Thompson and Winslet give fine performances ably supported by the rest of the ensemble.
