The Hollywood Reporter
Captivating drama delivers literary flair and Louisiana music and great roles for a grizzled John Travolta and lovely Scarlett Johansson. Full Review
Ann Hornaday
Washington Post
Traffics in nearly every trite cliche of the "colorful" South one can think of, from its pseudo-Gothic aesthetic to its overripe dialogue. Full Review
Carina Chocano
Los Angeles Times
Among other things, the characters in A Love Song for Bobby Long really know how to turn a phrase, in itself a pleasure so rare it all but demands any flaws be forgiven. Full Review
Carla Meyer
San Francisco Chronicle
It's engaging and transparent at once. Full Review
David Rooney
A pedigree cast elevates old-fashioned material and lackluster screenwriting. Full Review
