The Cider House Rules

This is an unabashedly sentimental movie that wants to pluck our heart strings, and now and then its tone (and its quiet but incessant soundtrack by Rachel Portman) turns cloyingly sweet. Caine's portrayal of a Maine doctor (he has a perfect American accent and clipped New England delivery) is a coup for an actor who had seemed too often trapped in the roles of snake-eyed British lotharios, con men and other sleazeballs.
Stephen Holden, New York Times, December 10, 1999
