66 year-old Robert De Niro accomplishes what may be his bravest role of the last two decades by simply choosing to play a real old man in Kirk Jones? Everybody?s Fine.

What makes the unabashedly sentimental package work a lot better than it should is Robert De Niro.

...an unapologetically sentimental drama...

Moving Pictures Magazine

A recently widowed retiree embarks on a cross-country journey to visit each of his children, expecting to find them as happy and successful as their stories painted them.

Guardian

A refreshingly open, untricksy performance from De Niro, and very possibly the harbinger of an excellent late period for him as an actor. As for the film, well "fine" is what can reasonably be said.

Its essential niceness should not be discounted; niceness is a rare commodity in films today.

Rosamund Witcher
Heat Magazine

Despite the title, nobody in this film is fine. But, if youâ(TM)re in the mood for a well-acted drama that will strum obstinately at those heartstrings, youâ(TM)ve got it.

David Edwards
Daily Mirror [UK]

Robert De Niro's latest would-be weepy, Everybody's Fine, may remind you of About Schmidt's less-interesting brother. In fact, the title says it all - it's neither good nor bad, just deeply OK.

Daily Express

Everybody's Fine is unavoidably sentimental. Writer/director Kirk Jones is not ashamed to tug at the heartstrings but he also invests the film with enough truth and insight to elevate it beyond a crass weepy.

A beautifully shot drama that's worth seeing for the performances, but it never quite delivers the required emotional punch.

News of the World

Mushier than a half-chewed rusk. And while that doesn't necessarily make it a bad movie, it DOES make it a syrupy one - with enough hugging and learning to triple your cholesterol during the 100-minute run-time.

De Niro steals the show with a subtle, charismatic and moving performance.

Birmingham Post

The moments of comedy - and the childhood flashbacks - are beautifully crafted. With 66-year-old De Niro giving one of his most subtle performances for years.

If DeNiro was the John Wayne of New Hollywood, then this is his The Quiet Man.

Spectrum (St. George, Utah)

Your stage in life will likely determine your ability to see the truth and subtle power in this gentle and worthwhile film though its certainly not a seasonal spirit lifter.

Robert Roten
Laramie Movie Scope

This bittersweet family road film about a man trying to forge new connections to his children and grandchildren is powered by a strong Robert De Niro performance.

Brent Simon
Shared Darkness

Not a reinvention of the wheel, but this sensitively told remake of Giuseppe Tornatore's same-named 1991 Italian film slots in respectably as the holiday season's obligatory commercial drama of familial reconciliation.

De Niro returns from the cinematic wilderness in "Everybody's Fine."

Linda Cook
Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)

A bittersweet story of family loss and lies by omission, 'Everybody's Fine' isn't so much a laugh fest as a dramedy.
