USA Today
The powerful two-person drama gets watered down by documentary-style footage and voice-overs. But it's worth seeing just for Weaver and LaPaglia. Full Review
Dana Stevens
The New York Times
What limits The Guys -- what makes it an exercise in art therapy rather than a work of art -- is its decorous refusal to probe deeply into its characters, or to exploit any of the dramatic potential their accidental relationship might contain. Full Review
Dennis Harvey
An adept if necessarily limited translation of uncinematic material, The Guys retains the potency of its stage original as a poignant, ingeniously simple tribute to firefighters lost in the World Trade Center disaster. Full Review
Desson Thomson
Washington Post
This is a superb theatrical situation, and you have two great performers doing the emoting. Full Review
Jack Mathews
New York Daily News
There's an inherent distance between movies and their audiences that -- combined with the distance between 9/11 and today's opening of the film -- The Guys can't bridge. Full Review
