It's depressing to see a deluxe cast wasted on such by-the-numbers material.

The story just doesn't do enough to pull the heartstrings.

Unfortunately, it's as flimsy as tissue, and the actresses, all 50+, really do more with the material...than it deserves.

Thank heavens for the practical presence and humour of Bates, and the quiet conservatism of Allen's performance as a pious woman scared of too much freedom.

The Age (Australia)

A film full of emotional false notes, bad dialogue and cardboard characters...

For a film about discovering your own journey, it sure sticks to the main roads.

While the premise of this roadtrip come buddy movie may be based on loss, the journey we take is a vibrant one

What happens when you take 3 of the best dramatic actresses of all time and put them together in a road movie? Pretty much a movie that should have wound up on Lifetime.

Bonneville gets by - barely - on the strength of its three leading ladies.

Bonneville is scarcely original and in no way earthshaking, but its notable cast is a pleasure to behold.

Clearly, this fatiguing femme drama is Lifetime, Oxygen or straight-to-DVD grade level. To put it in theatres is a gross overreach.

The characters, situations and resolutions all are predictable and fit like a warm, stretched-out sweater with holes in the elbows.

Kim Voynar

... to see all that potential wasted on what's little more than a washed-out, milquetoast road trip comedy for the soon-to-be senior set is just a travesty.

When you've got three of the nation's best actresses in leading roles, it doesn't matter if your script is only adequate and the audience really has to squint here and there to believe what's happening on the screen.

Patronizing an underserved audience with this kind of half-baked fare is a cinematic crime not easily forgiven.

A heartfelt drama about a grieving woman who embarks with her two best friends on a pilgrimage across the West seeking meaning and closure.

... sticks to a soothingly familiar itinerary, providing a welcome showcase for Jessica Lang, Kathy Bates and Joan Allen. As expected, they prove mighty good company along the way %u2014 which is fortunate, because there's nothing much else that qualifies

TV Guide's Movie Guide

It's a shame that it's such predictable pablum, full of easy lessons and obvious sentiment. The prodigiously talented Allen, Bates and Lange give it their all, but there's a limit to what even they can do with platitudes and prefabricated homilies.

Chris Hewitt (St. Paul)
St. Paul Pioneer Press

It's just great to see these three in sizable roles instead of being stuck in Hollywood movies where they pop up briefly to wash the dishes and dispense advice to the hot actress who's the star of the thing.

There are zero surprises in the road comedy Bonneville, sadly including the fact that three middle-age actresses with three Oscars and nine nominations among them couldn't find anything more challenging to do.
