This one starts out a little dull, but ends on a more positive note with a little more excitement, in the strange fashion of this one of course, but it is entertaining. It could have been a lot better though with... Full review

Everything about Evan Rachel Wood and Michael Douglas' performances were incredible. This is a Michael Douglas we've never seen, and I'm glad we got the chance to. The constant reminders that they were in suburban California made me laugh. While the... Full review

Time has a way of passing us by without us even noticing. Like crackpot Charlie's old house, surrounded on all sides by a new housing development, the world in which we used to live disappears little by little until we finally... Full review

A fantasy that uses realistic circumstances to tell something like an inspirational fairy tale. The father-daughter relationship and presence of contemporary superstore adds an element of believability to what essentially could have been a fairy tale. So, while the movie requires... Full review

Trite, predictable, confusing, disappointing performance of Michael Douglas, this film never came together with any clue about what the director intended. Ending left us wondering what was in the dishwasher! But on the other hand, who cares?... Full review

BETTY FROM LANCASTER IS A MORON. STORY IS PRETTY EASY TO FOLLOW. DONT KNOW WHAT SHES TALKING ABOUT. DOUGLAS PLAYS A SEMI INSANE CHARACTER WHO IS INFACTUATED WITH THE LEGEND OF A SPANISH TREASURE BEING BURRIED NEAR BY. IF YOU WATCH... Full review

The acting was great! Especially the girl, but it surrounded too much on Michael Douglas and the story movied too slow.... Full review
One of the best movies of 2007

This is one of the best movies I saw recently. It has a bit of everything to make it an independent movie classic - goof ball characters, craziness and whole deal of introspection. What makes this movie different from many... Full review

Both Douglas and Wood are fantastic in portraying the complex....The script also successfully juggles a multitude of emotions, playing up both the dramatic and comedic moments with equal deftness.....Douglas is particularly good, making Charlie seem so charismatic, even in his madness.... ...

The film is really at its best when it's dealing with the dysfunctional father-daughter relationship.....MDT Michael Douglas certainly appears to be having fun as a treasure-seeking lunatic in "King of California..... ... Full Review

The Providence Journal
The treasure of the film is the unearthing of the family bond, magically played by Douglas and Wood. This prompts Miranda (Evan Rachel Wood), his supremely self-reliant 16-year-old daughter, to get back on "the bipolar pony," as she calls riding Dad's mood swings. ... Full Review
