    Joe Neumaier New York Daily News

    Boasting perhaps the most bored-sounding voice-over ever, this unexceptional drama imagines itself - much as its young heroine does - to be far more noteworthy than it actually is. show more

    Has heart to spare, but little new to say. show more

    Kyle Smith New York Post

    If you can overlook Andie MacDowell's Mitteleuropa accent as a Jewish Holocaust survivor (I know: big if), the cinematic roman a clef Mighty Fine has some quiet charms. show more

    Mark Feeney Boston Globe

    Chazz Palminteri's the best thing in the movie. He now has the look of a slightly beefier Steve Buscemi. But where Buscemi is all nerves on edge and something bad waiting to happen, Palminteri has a winning ease. show more

    Debbie Goodstein-Rosenfeld's film seems oddly anemic when it deals with anyone but Chazz Palminteri's Joe. show more

    Despite a committed performance from Palminteri (ripping through scenes like an aged bulldog), Debbie Goodstein's loosely autobiographical drama is as nondescript as made-for-pennies independents come. show more

    Gary Goldstein Los Angeles Times

    It all makes for a family therapist's dream scenario, but an otherwise choppy and predictable memory piece. show more

    Stephen Holden The New York Times

    Mighty Fine chugs along heartily until it abruptly stops on the edge of cliff, leaving you feeling shortchanged. It is a couple of crucial scenes away from feeling complete. show more

    Nick Schager Village Voice

    The mood is generally melodramatic and ends as mushy, aided by the soft-focus cinematography that drenches it all in melancholic nostalgia. show more

    This was a powerful performance by all 4 of the Fine family members. They make you laugh and cry, and they stay with you for a long time. A beautiful, moving poem read by the youngest daughter sumarizes theirs hopes, fears, losses and potential. Throughout everything the great 70s clothes, cars, furniture and music are a fun reminder of a colorful decade. If you want to see a movie base on a well-written story, this is the movie for you.

    Only ok. Andie Mcdowall wasn\'t completely believable at times
