Critic Reviews for Ellen DeGeneres: Relatable

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (6)

  • In Relatable, Ellen DeGeneres struggles to regain the edge that she has lost in that intervening time...In defending Hart without any sort of thoughtful inquiry, DeGeneres abdicated her responsibility to her audience.

  • I just wish she gave us more of her own visceral humanness and trusted us to receive her with a little more darkness than her brand typically allows for.

  • It also makes her more real to everyone - to her fans and anyone else who has an immutable notion of who she is without taking into account the expectation of who we expect her to be.

  • It's goofy, and if there's an edge underneath DeGeneres's frustration with the complaint that she may no longer be relatable, it's buried deep.

  • Irony wins and Ellen rules. Fury has had nothing to do with DeGeneres' triumph or enduring appeal.

  • After all this time away from the stage, Relatable [is] a promising new beginning for an old pro.
