Critic Reviews for Hello Again

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (5)

Shelley Long wanders through a script she can't carry by herself while heading a cast handled with less than a Midas touch by director Frank Perry, who seems to think he's staging a high school play.

Top Critic

Merely the excuse for a parade of expensive clothes and opulent locations, with Shelley Long milking her role for any drop of pathos, this is good for a giggle at best.

Time Out
Top Critic

A high-concept comedy with a terminally low laugh content.

Full Review… | May 20, 2003
New York Times
Top Critic

All of this is presented with a broad-stroked, sitcom raucousness that's pretty tough to stomach.

Washington Post
Top Critic

There are the makings of a great comedy here, but you will not find more than scattered hints of it.

Chicago Sun-Times
Top Critic

As predictable as the sun rising.

Audience Reviews for Hello Again

A really good dark comedy with a good cast, it's very funny, if you like movies where dead people come back with funny results, you'll like this movie.

Aj V

Super Reviewer

A funny movie about life, love, and friendship. Quirky, at first but one cannot help but fall in love with it.

Leo L

Super Reviewer

This is a cute funny movie from the 80's. Although Shelly Long is not a spectacular actress, this part suits her well. It is definetely worth checking out.
