Critic Reviews for Mind the Gap

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (13) | Fresh (10) | Rotten (7)

The coincidences are almost all supremely transparent and the characters gratingly quirky, two faults that committed acting almost redeems. But not quite.

The performances are solid, even when the roles are aggressively whimsical.

Minneapolis Star Tribune
Top Critic

There are a couple of affecting moments here and there, but they are lost amid more than two snail-paced hours of often maudlin tedium.

Top Critic

You can see what's coming five minutes into the movie, but capable acting lends it a certain superficial charm.

L.A. Weekly
Top Critic

Warm-hearted but clear-eyed indie effort richly repays audience patience during deliberately paced and provocatively allusive early scenes with a cumulative emotional impact that is immensely satisfying.

Top Critic

An overly ambitious, overly complex and overly long opus that bites off more than it can chew.

Hollywood Reporter
Top Critic

It's moving, poignant, funny, and charming. Best of all, the characters get the closure they need and when they find renewed hope, it lifts your spirits.

Full Review… | December 17, 2004

Because the performances are so true, we believe in these people, even when they're doing unbearably wacky things.

St. Paul Pioneer Press

Formulaic but surprisingly affecting.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Despite its flaws, Mind the Gap comes together as a beautiful portrait of seemingly unrelated ties that lead to important shifts in the lives of total strangers.

Full Review… | September 11, 2004

Schaeffer's voice represents the Average Joe in a bar who thinks he has all the answers about the human condition but has nothing interesting to say. Yet, he keeps talking.

Full Review… | April 6, 2004

This is a solid under-the-radar sleeper.
