Critic Reviews for Filly Brown

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (5) | Rotten (7)

  • A routine music business cautionary tale, the film shuffles its decks ever so slightly by casting a Latino actress as its lead, but doesn't do enough to shed the exasperating confines of the star-is-born genre.

    April 26, 2013 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • More heartfelt, humanistic, and entertaining than such a clichéd showbiz cautionary tale has any right to be.

    April 23, 2013 | Full Review…
  • Almost despite our will, the cast keeps us invested in Filly's furious resurrection.

    April 18, 2013 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Unfortunately, the film is marred by a story, situations and stereotypical characters that strike all-too-familiar chords.

    April 18, 2013 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

    USA Today
    Top Critic
  • A trite piece of storytelling, with character development and plot points that feel not so much lived in as borrowed from other movies.

    January 24, 2012

    Robert Koehler

    Variety
    Top Critic
  • Gina Rodriguez's magnetic star turn keeps this often overwrought film engaging, even when the script lets her down.
