Critic Reviews for Golden Years

All Critics (12)

It's a lovely idea but the execution falls short on every count, hampered by some strange casting, some seriously misfiring comedy and a screenplay -- co-written by Knowles -- that suggests, on this evidence, that he should stick to the day job.

A film too stiff for comedy, too silly for drama and too slow for fun in between.

January 2, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Every member of the cast... deserved a better, less far-fetched, plot than director John Miller and writers Miller, Nick Knowles and Jeremy Sheldon have devised for them.

December 9, 2016 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

...a gentle comedy with something to say...

November 27, 2016 | Rating: 15/20 | Full Review…

Founded on solidly serious themes of ageing, dying, illness and crime, the film does not on the surface offer much hope for fun, but the surface is exactly where the fun is

November 26, 2016 | Full Review…

Substandard jokes about "slap and tickle" and vibrators, and parochial references to Pot Noodles nowhere near sophisticated enough for the intended audience.
