  • The wackier things get, the more droll [Jay DeVon Johnson] becomes, and he is really, really funny. Once I started rolling with his take on what's going on, the film got a little funny for me.

  • There was actually a surprising amount of substance and depth to the characters, although the tonal shifts didn't always work.

    April 19, 2021 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
  • "Jakob's Wife" proudly embraces its inherent B-ness. But it's the star who makes this a low-down hoot while rooting it in some tart and deserved observations about the battle of the sexes.

    April 17, 2021 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • By turns funny, grisly, tragic and insightful, Jakob's Wife carries the smartness of years.

    April 16, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • An insightful and often very funny commentary on marriage and the limitations placed on women.

    April 16, 2021 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • "Jakob's Wife" is a portrait of a marriage in a rut, saved when the husband stops sucking the life out of his spouse and instead helps her suck the life out of everyone else.
