September 20, 2019
This film may be hard to enjoy, but it sticks with you.
August 2, 2019
It is an average feel-good movie whose bitter scratches come from a feature not entirely provided by the director White. [Full Review in Spanish]

A good cast and an OK script are let down by directorial fumbling and an ending that leaves you wondering just what exactly, if anything, the film was ever trying to say.
February 19, 2019
This is essentially a seriocomic tale of the ridiculous foibles of male ego, and as entertaining as that can be, Brad's Status never quite does enough to transcend its problematic male-centric perspective.
December 21, 2018
One of those films that makes you feel bad when you exit the theater.

Brad's Status is a fashionable, digestible, imitation bootleg of real despair. It's lip service to agony. Why bother?
November 2, 2018
There's little compelling about the drama in regards to Brad's Status. Brad appears to not have any concept of how minor and inconsequential his problems are.
October 31, 2018
Brad's Status is a smart, thoughtful examination of privilege that doesn't endorse the viewpoint of Stiller's disaffected character
October 30, 2018
Brad's Status is more than a little didactic, but it has greater value in the less pre-determined, more emotional fringes of its story.
October 17, 2018
Brad is so tedious that one spends the whole movie waiting for him to get his comeuppance. And sure enough, a secondary character comes in halfway through and reads him for filth.
August 27, 2018
Brad's Status is enjoyable, it's well observed and well acted, surprisingly fresh and not as conventionally predictable as you might imagine.
August 23, 2018
If the writer/director had really worked through these issues artistically, and really synthesized these issues further, the film would have been stronger and more satisfying.
July 19, 2018
The problem with Brad's Status is that Brad's prattling on is never pleasant, and the film knows it.
April 24, 2018
It's a bit navel-gazing, but also important.
March 19, 2018
It doesn't reinvent the wheel, but if you're a fan of Stiller's dramatic work or have a kid heading off to Uni soon, you probably shouldn't miss it.
February 26, 2018
Painful and frustrating but not without solace, Mike White's second film offers an honest look at the midlife crisis, as well as a poignant reminder of how the first step to success in life is to stop worrying about it. [Full review in Spanish]
February 21, 2018
Mike White handles his film with significant sensitivity. [Full Review in Spanish]
January 29, 2018
Great introspective work of the protagonist. [Full Review in Spanish]
January 24, 2018
It's an effectively told narrative, well-paced and worthwhile.
January 24, 2018
Mike White has written some of the most humane and relevant films about living in 2017.
