Washington Post
Provides some wry chuckles, but much of it is as dark as a Glasgow winter. Full Review
Ann Hornaday
Washington Post
What makes Wilbur worth watching are its smaller bits: Mads Mikkelsen's hilarious performance as a taciturn psychiatrist and Julia Davis's equally funny portrayal of a needy group therapy counselor. Full Review
Dana Stevens
The New York Times
Like its humor, the film's sentiment sneaks up on you, and so does the dramatic reversal that makes it something more than a collection of wry anecdotes. Full Review
Joe Morgenstern
Wall Street Journal
Full of life -- which is a very good thing to say about a story that turns on death -- wonderfully odd, and a gallery of perfect performances. Full Review
Kenneth Turan
Los Angeles Times
Call this a brooding comedy or a darkly whimsical drama, "Wilbur's" willingness to mix gallows humor and real sadness make it something on which labels do not easily fit. Full Review
