Ave Maria Mulligan (Ashley Judd), the town's self-proclaimed spinster, has resigned herself to a quiet life of singlehood and being useful.

Critic Reviews for Big Stone Gap

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (10) | Fresh (8) | Rotten (13)

  • By the time we get to the final, borderline ludicrous moments in Big Stone Gap, I wasn't even surprised by the overwhelming sappiness of it all.

    October 14, 2015 | Rating: 1/4
  • The movie ambles along amiably enough for a while; it's better if you are a fan of one or more members of the cast.

    October 9, 2015 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • That the creaky romantic comedy "Big Stone Gap" attracted such a large ensemble of talented name actors only makes this country-fried turkey feel like an even more notable miss.

    October 8, 2015 | Full Review…
  • It's tempting to say "Big Stone Gap" is greeting-card pretty and sweet, but that doesn't quite fit because these days greeting cards seem to have developed a bit of an edge. "Big Stone Gap" is edge-free.

    October 8, 2015 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • The plot itself has little momentum, and what should feel dramatic instead feels inert.

    October 8, 2015 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Nothing feels believable in "Big Stone Gap," a bungled, charm-free look at small-town life in the South in the late '70s.

    October 8, 2015 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…
