Joseph Jon Lanthier
Slant Magazine
September 6, 2010
A film that meditates upon post-9/11 psychology without an urgent sense of purpose or even an empathetic voice to guide us through the event's gnarl of grief isn't simply mediocre, it's dishonorable.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
Avi Offer
NYC Movie Guru
September 5, 2010
Often stilted and uninvolving amalgamation of drama, tragedy, romance and awkward musical numbers. Jan O'Dell steals the show with her genuinely heartfelt performance.
Full Review | Original Score: 5.0/10
Matthew Nestel
Boxoffice Magazine
September 4, 2010
Though naive in execution, the story gingerly bypasses loaded drama to pluck bushels of hope from obvious blight.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

The film's tepid songs are emblematic of its tepid characterizations.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

Earnest and well meaning and, while dangerously sentimental at times, never quite crosses the line into maudlin.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

Want to experience the worst sort of theater without the bother or expense of heading to New York?
Frank Lovece
Film Journal International
September 2, 2010
Theatre-inspired and cast-workshopped musical about several New Yorkers' lives in the wake of 9/11 is well-intentioned but off-off-off-off-Broadway.

Time Out
September 1, 2010
An overcrowded, emotionally erratic anthem of NYC endurance.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

Pretentious profiles in post-9/11 grief and confusion, Clear Blue Tuesday manages the not-inconsiderable feat of insulting both the memory of the World Trade Center attacks and the musical genre.

Preoccupation with tragedy does not a narrative make.
