Rene (Paul Rudd) and Dennis (Paul Giamatti) prove Christmas is the season for a good con. A low-level convict fresh out of prison, misanthropic Dennis is unable to find work because of his shady past.

Metacritic Score

    Film.com Jordan Hoffman

    There are tones of 1970s shaggy realism that are interrupted by moments of character-driven shtick. The wistful scenes aren't rich enough to engross you and the comedy isn't clever...

    Slant Magazine Chris Cabin

    All Is Bright remains engaging, for the most part, but most of the big narrative turns feel both predictable and forced, and at odds with the natural charms of the cast.

    The Playlist Rodrigo Perez

    Semi-flat with only a few jokes and emotional beats that land, the picture is often dull when it should be poignant.
