Gerard Depardieu
Actor, 102 Dalmatians (2000)
Adults should be aware that the increasingly bulky Depardieu is first seen in leopardskin shorts, not a sight for those of a nervous disposition.
(Chris Tookey, Daily Mail)
Gerard Depardieu’s gurning turn as her [Cruella De Vil’s] evil helpmeet will require every cinema owner to hire a priest to stand in the foyer and say a requiem mass for his career.
(Peter Bradshaw, Guardian)
Actor, The Man In the Iron Mask (1998)
Embarrassing Peter Sellers impersonator Gerard Depardieu.
(Alan Frank, Video Home Entertainment)
Actor, Last Holiday (2006)
The film is chiefly notable for a bizarre appearance by poor Gérard Depardieu, whose mind is clearly elsewhere, as he plays the hotel chef. Gérard is frankly not on the ball. He does not know what the ball looks like. In each scene he looks as if, just before the cameras started rolling, someone has hit him very hard over the head with one of his frying pans. It was obviously all he could do to totter down to the bank with his cheque.
(Peter Bradshaw, Guardian)
