More redundant than offensive.

At least it doesn't lack in big moments where people cry and scream.

Los Angeles Times
Top Critic

It barely tries to offer insight into its much-debated subject, content to rip the scab off an ever-fresh wound for the sake of controversy.

Time Out
Top Critic

The dialogue is all surface: Emotions are laid out on the autopsy table for the audience to dissect and analyze, but rarely feel.

Top Critic

Hello Herman suffers not so much from its boldly stated anti-bullying agenda but from its failure to come to any conclusions.

Eye for Film

... a messy, blunt movie that manages to push a lot of buttons. Surely one of them does something.

Audience Reviews for Hello Herman

I recently attended a screening of Hello Herman, by Michelle Danner who Directed and Produced the Film. This film deals with the realty of what can happen when bullying at schools and universities are not taken seriously in America. Michelle Danner captures the truth and moments of a bullied student. She also tells this story though the eyes of both sides of the coin, the victims and victors.

Martha Tatter

Hello Herman is a film that leads the audience thru an emotional roller coaster,
Director Michelle Danner has done a wonderful job at portraying not only suspense but 2 opposing arguments.
