Critic Reviews for Labor Day

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (1) | Rotten (7)

  • Director Glenn Silber's look at how window washers, public employees, janitors and other working men and women played a role in 2008's political events is heartening, and yet, a year after being filmed, unintentionally aggravating.

  • Rather than capturing the profound excitement so many people felt during the 2008 campaign, it just seems to be patting itself on the back.

    October 30, 2009 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • The film never finds drama, focus or any greater purpose other than some dubious horn-blowing about the SEIU being singularly responsible for electing President Obama.

  • I'd call Glenn Silber's Labor Day a well-intentioned but dull, video-ugly documentary if it weren't partly financed by its subject, the Service Employees International Union (SEIU); that just makes it a crappy infomercial.

  • A promotional film best suited for broadcast in an office lobby.

  • There's only so much rah-rah-sis-boom-ba you can take about a President elected on the premise of ending the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, who has merely followed in his predecessor's footsteps of starving the U.S. into dirt.

  • Mildly engaging, but lacks sufficient insight, intrigue and provocativeness to rise above the kind of footage you'd typically find in an infomercial or, worse, in propaganda.
