Who Do You Love

Critics Consensus

It boasts an interesting cast, and the music remains unimpeachable, but this Chess Records biopic suffers from a workmanlike script -- as well as comparisons to its recent predecessor, Cadillac Records.

Critic Reviews for Who Do You Love?

All Critics (26) | Top Critics (11) | Fresh (10) | Rotten (16)

  • It was muscled out of the marketplace by Cadillac Records, Sony's glossy, star-studded movie about Leonard. But it's clearly the better movie, earthier, wittier, and more intimate in its treatment of America's racial divide in the 1950s.

    April 30, 2010 | Full Review…
  • I think more edge is needed, more reality about the racial situation at the time, more insight into how and why R&B and rock 'n' roll actually did forever transform societies in America and the world.

    April 29, 2010 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • In the end, the most striking thing about Leonard is that he never seems to stop smoking.

    April 23, 2010 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
  • It's the terrific music and amusing array of characters that keep the picture afloat.

    April 15, 2010 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • If you're really interested in Chess Records, why go to this film at all when you could be at home actually listening to Chess records?

    April 15, 2010 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Has neither the star power nor the epic sense of itself that infused Cadillac Records, the 2008 film on the same subject.

    April 9, 2010 | Rating: 2.5/5
