Assured handling and an appealing cast make this a deserving crowd-pleaser.

There's food for thought in 'Naming Number Two,' but staginess in conception and acting, bad pacing, and triteness are together too much to overcome.

An involving story, even if the story structure betrays its stage roots.

A dull and utterly routine ensemble dramedy.

it works because Ruby Dee has willed it so

[A] generally torpid movie.

As usual, it's always up to the small budget indies to act as a corrective to Hollywood misperceptions and misconceptions, in this case the longstanding stereotypical depiction of elders.

Suffering from a formulaic story, ridden with clichés, the film has enough remarkable performances to make up for where it lacks. Not entirely, though.

Dee turns in a fine performance as Nana Maria.
