Los Angeles Times
Weirdly clueless. Full Review
Derek Elley
Rather dark, decidedly English and exceedingly well played, Keeping Mum is a neatly crafted black comedy with more than a nod in tone toward the Ealing classic "The Ladykillers." Full Review
Desson Thomson
Washington Post
A British black comedy, saves its best for last -- and God bless Maggie Smith for, well, being Maggie Smith -- but that requires sitting through a frustrating, uneven hour of sluggish preamble. Full Review
Jack Mathews
New York Daily News
A giddy black comedy about a homicidal housekeeper in rural England, is a hilarious reminder of that 1944 Frank Capra classic about two old maids whose cellar is cluttered with the bodies of would-be suitors. Full Review
Kirk Honeycutt
The Hollywood Reporter
Amusing dark English comedy produces its share of chuckles. Full Review
