I agree totally with goingpublic4u2. I couldn't describe it any better if I tried.

I liked some of the movie like the ending, but the rest of the movie was slow and boring.

Jason Reitman's simplistic but poetic offering of a Labor Day holiday weekend in middle America is noteworthy as much for its well-written script as it is for its stellar performances by Winslet and Brolin who capture and captivate through sense and touch. Momentary lulls are forgiven.

A better film would have had the gumption to maintain the poetic bleakness, rather than steer toward what ultimately feels like safe compromise. Full Review

You can love the look of the movie and still not believe a single word of it. To be fair, the climax is surprisingly touching; somehow, the residents of this cooked-up tale manage to earn our pity and support. Full Review

Los Angeles Times
The film finds its footing as the weekend progresses and the temperature and tension — outside and in — rise. Full Review

Labor Day may be filled with autumn's falling leaves, but it makes sense that they're bringing it out as a prelude to spring, for the sap — and I do mean sap — is rising. Full Review
Catherine Shoard
The Guardian
With its frank approach to the basics of human desire, its steady, intense focus on a small-town story which could have come straight from Douglas Sirk, Reitman's fifth feature appears to bear little resemblance the four that went before. Full Review
