What to know

critics consensus

Kevin Spacey's performance is almost sharp enough to save this Hollywood dramedy from itself, but in the end, he's dragged down by a cliched script and indifferent direction. Read critic reviews

Audience Reviews for Shrink

  • Mar 31, 2012
    The film was so so. The film has the same style as Crash did. The acting performances are really good. Spacey shines as usual. Keke Palmer gets better in every role I see her in. On the negative, I thought some of the scenes were not lit really well. Some scenes were too dark, lighting wise. Also the pacing was off. Some scenes were too slow. Despite the flaws that the film has, I still recommend the film, especially for the performances by the cast.

    This was pretty good. I watched it over a year ago, and I can't remember it too much.

    kevin spacey is okay in his role as a therapist, but story is dull, and interweening stories of related charactors doesent come across well, although there are some good performances

    Shrink is a valiant attempt at a meaningful drama, but in the end, the film is truly only worth the two average performances from Spacey and Palmer. See Shrink solely for an exemplary display of Kevin Spacey’s range and uncanny ability to remain relevant …
