Critic Reviews for A Family Man

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (2)

A loathsome redemption tale that rings false on every front.

September 27, 2016 | Full Review…

Never rises above polished plastic, formulaic, and pedestrian.

September 15, 2016 | Full Review…

Gerard Butler is given a rare opportunity to show some dramatic range, but despite his best efforts, A Family Man remains a cliched and painfully by-the-numbers offering.

June 16, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

A film that doesn't know how to go beyond its intentions to manipulate feelings and crush our heart. Butler walks the screen like a zombie without knowing where it comes from and where it goes. [Full review in Spanish]

June 14, 2017 | Full Review…

A Family Man is a predictable story about the quest for redemption. [Full review in Spanish]

June 8, 2017 | Full Review…

As manipulative, tedious and generic as they come.

May 31, 2017 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…
