What bad reviews? Harrison Ford and giddy wife Calista Flockhart laugh off critiques
Harrison Ford and his wife Calista Flockhart were a picture of happiness as he signed autographs for fans in Cannes on Thursday.
The fifth and final installment in the Indiana Jones franchise made its highly anticipated premiere at the 76th Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, France, after which the film’s star, 80, was greeted by adoring fans.
The star, who had a deep tan, and his TV star wife, 58, looked happier than ever, despite the film receiving lukewarm reviews from critics.
A host of critics rushed to review the film after Thursday’s release, but some less than flattering opinions have been published, including The Time branding the film, “A meandering, often enthralling yawn.”
The reviews didn’t seem to faze the couple as they stepped out of the event with beaming smiles and elegant waves for admirers.

Harrison looked sun-kissed as he emerged with his wife of 13, who was dressed in a pretty floral dress with sky-high heels.

Indiana Jones And The Dial Of Destiny, which has a budget of 0 million, is scheduled to hit theaters in the US on June 30, but it doesn’t seem to hold much excitement.
Some of the more cutting reviews include The Telegraph’s two-star stance on the film, reading: ‘It ultimately feels like a forgery of a priceless treasure: its form and gloss may be a little superficially convincing, but its shabbier workmanship becomes the brighter the longer you look.’
With an additional two stars, The Times reviewer wrote, “A meandering, often exhilarating yawn, this fifth and most expensive Indy outing to date (approximately $300 million) is a curious demonstration of how a Hollywood studio spends nearly a third of lay off a billion people. gives money to late 20th century nostalgia and so misunderstands it.”
INDIANA JONES: The ratings
A winding, often thrilling yawn, this fifth and most expensive Indy outing to date (around $300 million) is a curious demonstration of how a Hollywood studio can fire off nearly a third of a billion dollars on nostalgia in the late 20th century. century and got it so wrong.
It ultimately feels like a forgery of a priceless treasure: its shape and sheen may be equally superficially convincing, but its shabbier workmanship becomes all the more striking the longer you look.
An empty cry of a film that only exists to assuage the complaints of stray fans that have splintered the franchise’s audience for the past 15 years, ‘The Dial of Destiny’ is an adventure film that travels the world and is so safe that even The year-old hero never seems to be in any real danger.
Harrison Ford is the hero of the hour. He never loses his frown or his stubbornness. He plays even the weakest scenes with conviction and dry humour. His performance carries the film. Age may not wither him in the slightest, but the franchise itself is looking a bit ragged. Now is a good time to call it a day.
The finale is wildly silly and entertaining, and that Dial of Destiny is used in a bold way that makes light of the whole issue of defying aging and the gravity of time. Indiana Jones still has a certain old-fashioned class about it.
Robbie Collin, the chief film critic at The Daily Telegraph since 2011, was more blunt in his review, writing: “Oh God, sorry y’all, it’s just a bit lifeless and rubbish.”
Collin added to his review in a Rotten Tomatoes Editorialto write: “Ultimately it feels like a counterfeit of a priceless treasure: its shape and sheen may be equally superficially convincing, but its shabbier workmanship becomes all the more striking the longer you look.”
Set in 1969, against the backdrop of the Space Race, Dr. Jones, renowned archaeologist and adventurer, is concerned about the US government’s recruitment of former Nazis to defeat the Soviet Union in the battle for space reach.
Tantastic! Harrison sported a bronzed glow
