Critic Reviews for Big News From Grand Rock

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3)

  • Big News from Grand Rock is a fictional romp with a poignant core.

    Feb 27, 2015 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • A straight-faced but screwball comedy that's a little dated - rotary-dial phones? - yet absolutely pleasing.

    Feb 27, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Writer/director Daniel Perlmutter presents a sweet little comedy satirizing life in a small town that is more likely to produce gentle smiles than laugh-out-loud guffaws.

    Feb 26, 2015 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Big News from Grand Rock is a very modest film, one that can only get by on its modest charms.

    Jun 6, 2019 | Rating: 6.5/10 | Full Review…
  • An overlong (even at 87 min.), ho-hum affair. The premise is fairly broad and remains fairly silly. It's not that Big News from Grand Rock lacks bigness or grandness--its problem is there's no new-ness or bite or grit to its merely amiable comedy.

    May 25, 2015 | Full Review…
  • What might power a fun 22 minutes of TV proves unworkably naive at an hour and a half.
