Movie Reviews

  • the film itself is nearly as chaotic as the clan it examines can either be regarded as an admirable artistic correlative or a crippling defect, but the splendidly dexterous cast ensures that this goofy success story
    by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter ]
  • Russell doesn't quite figure out how to tell these stories concurrently, or even consecutively, resulting in a pile-up of characters and incidents and emotions that never satisfyingly coheres
    by Alonso Duralde [The Wrap ]
  • it's a smart, funny, sensitive portrait of the kind of woman whose role in both film and life is often ignored
    3 of 4 by Rafer Guzman [Newsday ]
  • for a film about dormant potential, that seems almost poetically apt, though ultimately unsatisfying
    Review rate : C+ by Ignatiy Vishnevetsky [A.V. Club ]
  • after 'Brooklyn' and 'Carol', here's another film that passes the Bechdel Test for proper female characters with flying colours
    4 of 5 by Cath Clarke [Time Out London ]
  • a over-staged mess of awkward exposition, contrived dialogue, and characters so willfully unreal they feel acrylic
    Review rate : C- by Leah Greenblatt [Entertainment Weekly ]
  • a more constrained and significantly less inspired seriocomic romp cobbled together from the life of Joy Mangano
    by Justin Chang [Variety ]
