A.O. Scott
The New York Times
When you hear his (Robert Kennedy's) patient, meditative speeches, from which every note of demagoguery or pandering has been purged, you glimpse the film Mr. Estevez set out to make -- the one you may wish you were watching. Full Review
Ann Hornaday
Washington Post
Bobby, even if it suffers from a few silly scenes, gets more right than it does wrong. Full Review
Claudia Puig
USA Today
Despite its flaws, its intriguing premise leaves us haunted by thoughts of "What if?" Full Review
Deborah Young
Emilio Estevez's Bobby is a passionate outcry for peace and justice in America that becomes deeply involving by the final climactic scene. Full Review
James Berardinelli
The resulting finished project is a series of skits performed by famous people doing favors for a friend, and it works about as well as one might expect from such an endeavor. Full Review
