Notes: 
Storyline Heading
A faded television actor and his stunt double strive to achieve fame and success in the film industry during the final years of Hollywood's Golden Age in 1969 Los Angeles.
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy Drama - This is a long, slow, talky '60s-set buddy comedy that will please fans of stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt and writer/director Quentin Tarantino. Other familiar faces in the cast have much smaller roles, including Margot Robbie. Those looking for historical accuracy with some of the real life figures depicted in the film will not find it here, for there is a major bit of deliberate deviation. Constant language and scenes of brutal, bloody violence make the film not for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Very Good ...might be too long and a little self-indulgent. But it's also chock-full of brilliant moments, great performances, and a sense of '60s Hollywood infused with a mix of fairy tale nostalgia and clear-eyed realism.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Excellent I can't wait to see this film again. It's so layered and ambitious, the product of a confident filmmaker working with collaborators completely in tune with his vision. Every piece fits. Every choice is carefully considered. Whether it all adds up to something is now up for audiences to decide...

NY Post Full Review
Average ...Tarantino's film is slow and sprawling. ...the movie is oddly wishy-washy... Like the grimy grandeur of its shots, the actors of "Once” are uniformly excellent. It's a shame all that goodness is undone by the film's gonzo ending, an ultra-violent coup de theater...

Rolling Stone Full Review
Very Good All the actors, in roles large and small, bring their A games to the film. Two hours and 40 minutes can feel long for some. I wouldn't change a frame. What is most shocking about the film is its open heart toward innocence, Sharon in particular. Robbie plays her like a point of light undimmed by cynicism.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 38 moviegoers:
Wow! Out of four showings, our opinion collectors were only able to collect these 38 reviews. This is likely due to the fact that quite a large percentage actually disliked this movie and weren't willing to provide a review.
TEENS: The lone male didn't enjoy "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood." Of the three females, two loved it but one disliked this movie.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: The three males all loved it as did one of the four females. One other female enjoyed "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" very much. The remaining two females disliked it.
ADULTS: Forty-percent of the males and about a quarter of the ladies loved "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood." For the star power in this movie, that's decent, but certainly not great. Only another 10% of the males and close to 20% of the females rated it a movie they enjoyed very much, but didn't love. What's not good is the high number of reviews lower than "good/average." Approximately 10% actually disliked this movie, which is highly unusual considering the stars and director. Proceed with caution!
