Washington Post
The biggest problem, then, is the characters who populate the film. For the most part, they're one-dimensional caricatures. Full Review
Carrie Rickey
Philadelphia Inquirer
Backwards - its title referring to the wisdom that life is lived forward but understood backward - has no forward propulsion. Full Review
Elizabeth Weitzman
New York Daily News

Gary Goldstein
Los Angeles Times

Jeannette Catsoulis
The New York Times
