Critic Reviews for Coming Up Roses

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (6)

  • There's nothing here to catch our eye, or our interest - just AfterSchool Special plot twists and family battles-and-bonding, spiced up with secrets and revelations that aren't nearly as unexpected, or revealing, as the filmmakers might hope.

    Nov 9, 2012 | Rating: 2/4
  • Director and co-screenwriter Lisa Albright uses Peters to lend some needed verve to a pretty standard, down-market milieu.

    Nov 9, 2012 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • This first feature from Ms. Albright does not augur a brilliant future.

    Nov 8, 2012 | Rating: 2/5
  • A modest drama most notable for its heartfelt performances.

    Nov 8, 2012 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • After a hoot of an entrance by Bernadette Peters showboating a tune from the rafters at a church wedding, Coming Up Roses takes a nosedive into despair and stays there.

    Nov 7, 2012 | Full Review…
  • An escalating melodrama in which drug deals, suicide attempts and sexual predation evoke playtime fabrication rather than world-weary experience.
