Wall Street Journal
Sympathetic, engaging documentary. Full Review
Claudia Puig
USA Today
While there is a vague hint of a vanity project in a few extraneous scenes, directors Barbara Kopple and Cecilia Peck have fashioned a compelling and rousing film that will not only appeal to Chicks fans, but make fans of those who weren't before. Full Review
Joanne Kaufman
Wall Street Journal
Sympathetic, engaging documentary. Full Review
Joel Selvin
San Francisco Chronicle
Documentary filmmakers pray for something to happen to their subjects when the cameras are rolling, and two-time Academy Award-winning documentarian Kopple struck gold when Maines told a crowd on the opening night of the band's first European tour that she was "ashamed" that President Bush was from Texas.

Nathan Rabin
The Onion (A.V. Club)
Maines' big mouth and winning candor got her into trouble, but Shut Up & Sing suffers from filmmakers who are intent on playing it safe. Full Review
