Critic Reviews for Funny Cow

All Critics (41) | Top Critics (15) | Fresh (32) | Rotten (9)

  • Peake is excellent as this tough yet at times amazingly tender woman, and the film tells her story without pulling any punches.

    July 27, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Funny Cow is unusual enough to hold attention, but nonetheless a misfire: incoherent, arty in the wrong ways and often bizarrely misjudged.

    July 20, 2018 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…
  • This film is interested in the point where hate and humour meet. Its protagonist is a real cow. I loved her to bits.

    April 25, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • It's...honest about the cesspools of knee-jerk racism and other forms of bigotry that passed for humour in the bad old days - some of which even the heroine dredges up to make her mark.

    April 22, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Funny Cow may prove as hard to embrace as its spiky subject, but Peake's performance and Hawley's music help to carry us across the threshold.

    April 22, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • It's a tough, passionate and compassionate account of survival at all costs...and a troubling portrait of an unsavoury element of national character that still very much exists.
