“..will be disappointed to find that 90 minutes of the film pass without much happening that we didn't already know..”
by Carrie Battan [Pitchfork]
“..the project is mostly just a fleeting glimpse, which is ultimately a disappointment..”
by Hank Stuever [Washington Post]

“..old home videos show that Beyonce always has been a star, but instead of sharing some honest feelings with us, she sticks to hokey platitudes like, "My feelings get hurt like anyone else"..”
by Curt Wagner [RedEye]
“..casual viewers will most likely glean the same sense of the superstar's life as one might from a magazine feature. But for serious fans of the fiercely private superstar, this remains a window into her life..”
by Gerrick D. Kennedy [Los Angeles Times]
“..a film that sells itself as a candid self-portrait ends up revealing not much at all..”
by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter]
