Metacritic Score

  • 60

    The New York Times Stephen Holden

    It feels mostly authentic until a contrived ending that leaves a saccharine taste.

  • 50

    Los Angeles Times Robert Abele

    Janie Jones is ultimately its own uneven tune, a mixture of discordant notes and way-too-familiar chords.

  • 50

    Variety Dennis Harvey

    There's never any doubt where the picture is headed. If it finally achieves a modicum of poignancy, the impact surely would have been greater if the whole felt fresher.
