Critic Reviews for Brigsby Bear

All Critics (41) | Top Critics (14)

The film does have jokes, but Mooney, channeling the spirit of Peter Sellers, delivers them all without even the slightest hint that he knows he's joking.

Top Critic

Mostly it's a sweet and sometimes delightful melancholic story of a lonely man saved by imagination and love.

July 27, 2017 | Full Review…

Scrappy and modest though [the] movie may be, it all coheres beautifully, and with a sweetness that never feels faked.

July 27, 2017 | Full Review…

A slight, handcrafted indie that's sweet, skewed, and feels a bit like a skit stretched out to feature length.

July 27, 2017 | Rating: B | Full Review…

A sweet-natured picture with an undercurrent of prickly energy.

July 27, 2017 | Full Review…

Brigsby Bear offers a glimpse on what makes Mooney and his man-child persona work. There's strength in embracing awkward, childlike wonder.
