Critic Reviews for Fighting with My Family

All Critics (199) | Top Critics (30)

  • It's a ramshackle movie at best, stuffed with cliches, cartoonish yet visually inert, a plea for non-conformity that never veers far from the commercial playbook.

    Mar 20, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Though it's set in the world of wrestling, "Fighting With My Family" can be understood by anyone who has ever wanted anything intensely, which is everybody.

    Mar 8, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Pugh is the film's main weapon. Hauntingly intense in The Falling and Lady Macbeth, the 23-year-old turns out to be an effortlessly nuanced comedian.

    Mar 3, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • The film struggles to dramatize Paige's triumph as anything but preordained.

    Mar 1, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Despite a great real-life background story, and despite comedy master Stephen Merchant being at the helm as writer-director, this movie never really comes off.

    Feb 27, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • A solid cast and Merchant's respectful approach elevates the material to the top rope, but it's rising star Pugh who hits her finisher.
