Collateral Beauty is the worst kind of pandering pap. It is garbage psycho-babble masquerading as pop-philosophy, set in a Pottery Barn.
Full Review | Original Score: 0.5/5
February 13, 2019
Collateral Beauty plays like a parody of Oscar bait, with overwrought one-note performances wrapped around an earnest, yet stupid central narrative.
Full Review | Original Score: 0/5

From start to finish, Collateral Beauty is a jaw-dropping piece of cinema, one that is astoundingly inept in every facet of its being.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
November 3, 2018
It's an overbearing, wannabe tear-jerker that wastes its cast with a story so nasty and mean-spirited it's a mystery how it was green lighted in the first place.
Full Review | Original Score: F
November 6, 2018
The "Christmas spirit" in this one is a little damp and flat.
August 30, 2018
Way too sentimental with a mean-spirited premise and a ridiculous conclusion.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
July 22, 2018
Collateral Beauty seemingly aspires to be blatant grief voyeurism, the kind to which, if a film is lucky, finds a cult following from teenagers who find it beautifully deep as the rest of us do our best not to sleep, seethe, or vomit.

... I don't know if the movie is worth saying "hey yeah total I gotta go out and watch this one"...
August 23, 2018
Contrived, annoying silly, and featuring some ripe acting from Smith, this is a Christmas movie turkey with all the starry trimmings.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
November 19, 2017 is one of the worst movies that I've seen this year...
November 6, 2017
The play on the term 'collateral damage' fails to hit home as the movie takes a long-winded route to get there.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
September 20, 2017
The film's concept of coping with death is applaudable, but the execution is at the other extreme. It is such a waste of talent.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
October 11, 2017
Collateral Beauty is just bad in the bad way.
August 24, 2017
The Hollywood tearjerker is an art form of pure privilege.
March 30, 2018
A domino construction that collapses between irrelevant subplots and underused actors. [Full review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
April 11, 2018
It is very difficult to suggest to fiercely avoid a film, but just imagine that this film is a dangerous creature. Get close at your own risk, that is if you are brave enough. [Full Review in Spanish]
January 10, 2017
Collateral Beauty had the potential to be great, yet even with a stellar cast and a seemingly heartwarming idea, the film failed to deliver what it promised its viewers.
December 14, 2016
With the domino pieces in place, the plot then coasts along rather predictably.
Full Review | Original Score: D
December 22, 2016
There is a gorgeous, existential tearjerker buried somewhere in this ill-conceived holiday offering, but even the combined talents of several well-regarded Hollywood actors couldn't wrench it free.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
January 3, 2017
A disappointing movie, overall, that lacks any self-awareness, Collateral Beauty has no real heart in its shallow depths.
