Critic Reviews for Fonzy

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

What distinguishes "Fonzy" is its attention to Diego's Galician roots.

Top Critic

The comic plot of Fonzy is outrageous, but to writer-director Isabelle Doval, it's just an armature that supports its gently funny characters and its themes of emotional and filial connections.

Top Critic

There's a sweetness to the proceedings that makes you sort of glad it wasn't strangled at birth.

This is London

Apparently there is an Indian version in the works; perhaps eventually, by UN decree, there will be one from every country in the world.

Yet another local spin on Ken Scott's (not very good to start with) 2011 comic sperm doner parable.

Little White Lies

Doval's relentlessly upbeat take is warm and fluffy, but leaves the sugary sentiments for the tear-jerking final reel.
