Ann Hornaday
Washington Post
It feels like a retread of several better movies, with a nastier, more bitter edge. Full Review
Carina Chocano
Los Angeles Times
A squarely suburban movie with a distinctly bourgeois-shaped window on the world, but it's genuine and exceptionally well observed. Full Review
Claudia Puig
USA Today
The primary upside to The Upside of Anger is the presence of Joan Allen in the lead role. Full Review
Dana Stevens
The New York Times
A seriously flawed movie wrapped around two nearly perfect performances. Full Review
David Edelstein
A climactic twist that's among the stupidest I've ever seen-almost up there with another Costner movie, "No Way Out," and "The Life of David Gale." Full Review
