Unexpectedly sharp, light and appealing; a testament to Hunt's skills behind the camera.

Heart 106.2

It's not going to cause too much of a stir but it left me wanting to see what else she can do, so I am already looking forward to her next film.

Hunt's film does soften the heart, not least because of its honesty and its sensitivity to some unfashionable dilemmas.

Empire Magazine

There's food for thought in the pregnancy plot, although the narrative drags its heels towards a misty-eyed conclusion.

Shadows on the Wall

A bittersweet combination of comedy and drama, this sensitive film has enough strong material in it to make it worth seeing, even if it sometimes feels under-developed and a little too heart-tugging

Helen Hunt makes an impressive directorial debut and gives a defiantly vanity-free performance in this engaging drama that also features strong support from Colin Firth and Bette Midler.

Film4

What at first seems a morose if witty romantic comedy for adults ends up being an altogether more serious piece about a woman acquiring children but leaving behind childish things.

Groucho Reviews

A highly satisfying old-fashioned comedy-drama...[with] a strong undercurrent of religion and philosophy that helps Hunt make her film profound in a way that sneaks up on you. [Blu-ray]

One of the best, most intelligent movies out there right now.

The Age (Australia)

The overt stylistic flourishes are so few that they have a special impact, particularly the moment when the camera slowly tracks towards April after she receives a piece of devastating news.

Charlotte Observer

Both role and movie fit [Hunt] as comfortable as a favorite bathrobe, and she wins us over long before the final tiny twist of the ending.

David Stratton
The Australian

To its credit, this is a romantic comedy with a more serious side than most. But in her seriousness, Hunt loses sight of the need for laughter.

NewsBlaze

Other than perhaps being a little long in the tooth to have Colin Firth's character convincingly going gaga over her, Helen Hunt has done a decent job of directing a 'chick flick' which ought to be a hit with the distaff demographic.

Helen Hunt stars in, directed and co-wrote Then She Found Me, and she handles each chore beautifully.

Richard Knight
Windy City Times

As Then She Found Me moves along it takes on some of the same sweet, loopy tone of Waitress and the story has a similar arc. It doesn't have the lush, dreamy look of Waitress (or its sounds) but it felt just as satisfying.

Mature dramedy interesting, but meanders too much.

Rob Thomas
Capital Times (Madison, WI)

It's a romantic "dramedy" that treads some familiar ground, but does so smartly and thoughtfully.

Salt Lake Tribune

Helen Hunt, as she allows herself to age authentically, may have a good second career as a director, based on the surefooted handling of this comedy-drama.
