Critic Reviews for Helicopter Mom

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (1)

A forced comedy that mines uneasy humor from stale stereotypes.

Apr 23, 2015 | Full Review…

Comedy about overly involved mom has a little edge.

May 1, 2015 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

With such an onslaught of misunderstanding of what being queer means and what the gay lifestyle is, the film flounders.

Apr 24, 2015 | Rating: 2/10 | Full Review…

Director Salome Breziner is too permissive with her star, but "Helicopter Mom" retains some heart and meaning as it struggles to breathe.

Apr 23, 2015 | Rating: C | Full Review…

Breziner's disjointed film is rife with storylines that go nowhere and characters that briefly appear and disappear without explanation.

Apr 23, 2015 | Rating: 2.4/10 | Full Review…

An alternately humorous and sobering cautionary tale chronicling the woes of an exasperated kid smothered by a well-meaning mom in an era of omnipresent parenting.
