Critic Reviews for Harmontown

All Critics (26) | Top Critics (15) | Fresh (19) | Rotten (7)

  • A film that is far more complicated and entertaining than the fanboy home movie you might anticipate (and dread).

    June 18, 2016 | Full Review…
  • [This] kind of honesty is the difference between sitcoms like Community and 30 Rock, which can be clever and amusing, and a truly brilliant, risk-taking show like Louie, which can be either hilariously funny or mortally depressing.

    October 30, 2014 | Full Review…
  • It's in the exploration of how "Community" fandom formed its own distinctive community of outcasts that the film excels, finally making sense of the show's cult popularity by diving into that cult and crowdsurfing on it.

    October 30, 2014 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • As much a portrait of a community as of its brilliant, de facto mayor, Harmontown is a stirring tribute to the restorative power of finding your people.

    October 23, 2014 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Harmon states at one point in the film that he just wants to be "the guy who makes people happy." This documentary does just that.

    October 16, 2014 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • The final 20 minutes are the strongest, when Harmon comes to some realizations about his behavior. Unless you're the biggest of fans, you may find yourself wishing that the film had reached this point earlier.

  • Those that know little about its subject will feel lost in the commotion.

    July 17, 2020 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…
  • Harmontown may not be a very memorable documentary, but it's funny and entertaining enough to earn a recommendation for Harmon fans (not that they need one).

Audience Reviews for Harmontown

  • Mar 30, 2015
    Dan Harmon may be one of the most eccentric, talented, crazed creators working today, evident from the large and extensive body of work on display in this documentary. The film follows a tour that Harmon embarks on with his co-hosts, from his podcast, Harmontown. Along the way they meet fans, talk out issues, and revel in general merriment.

    Harmontown is a good tale of connections among lonely folks across the States who are linked through the podcast of Dan Harmon. It is touching but one gets the sense that there are better documentary subjects out there.
