Critic Reviews for Aardvark

All Critics (26) | Top Critics (10) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (23)

  • Cobbled together using clichs and contrivances, Brian Shoaf's feature debut perceives mental illness more as a personality quirk than a sickness and treats it almost as a kind of magical realism.

  • Aardvark doesn't know how to do what it wants to do. It's not that the tone is uneven or uncertain, it's that the film doesn't have a tone at all.

  • Three thoughtful performances and a couple of intriguing interactions, but it is ultimately undermined by an underwritten script. The parts are greater than the whole.

  • Despite a strong lead cast and good intentions, "Aardvark" is a drag.

    April 12, 2018 | Full Review…
  • "Aardvark," while it has its moments, never lives up to the potential the cast would suggest.

    April 12, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • "Aardvark" appears to be about coping with mental illness and the toll it takes on families, and another filmmaker might have had something of consequence to say about both.

  • Shoaf builds to an odd crescendo and then mocks his audience for finally taking the leap with him. It's an audacious move that brings the third act to a grinding halt and really had me wondering what the director was attempting to accomplish.

  • Zachary Quinto as the amiable, aimless and psychologically-troubled Josh who deals with hallucinations in a small town America and Jenny Slate as his new therapist Emily are begging for better material to work with.
