Metacritic Score

  • 75

    Entertainment Weekly

    Laughter through tears is director Bill Duke's M.O., and he hits the bull's-eye of that modest target.

    The New York Times A.O. Scott

    Mr. Duke's filmmaking is functional at best, and the extreme shifts in emotional tone -- especially a late and disastrous swerve into tragedy -- are handled clumsily in Brian Bird'...

    Los Angeles Times

    The movie may be preaching to the choir -- and every inch of it feels like a sermon -- but it's a pretty decent homily, heartfelt and strongly delivered by a committed cast.
