Critic Reviews for Mighty Fine

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (10) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (12)

A well-meaning but unstable hand at the tiller, and a propensity for charting plot points, rather than a clear narrative destination.

Top Critic

If you can overlook Andie MacDowell's Mitteleuropa accent as a Jewish Holocaust survivor (I know: big if), the cinematic roman a clef "Mighty Fine" has some quiet charms.

"Mighty Fine," unfortunately, isn't.

Top Critic

Mighty Fine is an incisive portrait of an insecure, manic-depressive tyrant that Mr. Palminteri makes entirely believable.

Too many directions can be as much of a liability for a movie as too few, and "Mighty Fine" heads in all of them.

Boston Globe
Top Critic

Director Debbie Goodstein-Rosenfeld wraps so much narrative string around this slight ball it unravels messily, despite nice work from the reliable Palminteri.

New York Daily News
Top Critic

A somewhat drab and unimaginative telling further dents this dull melodrama of already rather limited psychological insights, and pat conclusions and catharses.

Shared Darkness

We're left with something akin to a Lifetime movie, as there are a number of interesting possibilities, which could have added complexity and depth to the film, that are never fleshed out.

Mighty bad.

Film Journal International

Debbie Goodstein-Rosenfeld's film seems oddly anemic when it deals with anyone but Chazz Palminteri's Joe.

Slant Magazine

A semi-autobiographical story of a man's over-reaching, which leads him to consider violent options in dealing with himself and his family.
