Time Out
Top Critic

The film's style is as doggedly ordinary as its story is preposterous.

New York Times
Top Critic

As amazingly bad as it is audacious, film will live forever in the hearts of connoisseurs of Hollywood's most memorably outrageous moments.

Intermittently entertaining and embarrassing.

Ultimately Mike Newell manages to make the film into something worthwhile.

Audience Reviews for Amazing Grace and Chuck

It's message is as subtle as nuking a country you're angry with. That being said, its heart is in the right place, and the performances are respectable. I'm pretty sure I couldn't go one year in grade school, without a teacher showing this in class.
