It must be said that as a whole movie, Judy only works in parts. The tone can get a bit tacky and the structure too flash-backy to truly impress for too long. Nevertheless, Zellweger's immaculate work saves the day repeatedly.

The way it acknowledges Garland's status as the original gay icon then pays it off in the final moments is a thing of beauty, a move that lifts Judy up from the doldrums of the typical biopic and elevates it to something altogether sublime.
October 20, 2019
Ultimately, Zellweger elevates this movie to a new level. It's not a perfect film, but her performance carries it across the finish line.

This is a movie that showcases Zellweger's considerable talents, and for that alone, Judy is worth the price of entry.
October 19, 2019
Garland must have been exasperating to work with, but Zellweger's performance goes right to the heart of what made her a superstar.

Although it follows the conventional tropes of the biopic, Judy shines thanks to Renee Zellweger's astonishing portrayal as one of Hollywood's most beloved legends. [Full Review in Spanish]
October 18, 2019
[T]he tragedy that plagued Garland's cruelly short life, the enormity of her talent and the devotion of her fans all leave a lasting impression in a film that clearly seeks to honour its subject.
October 17, 2019
This is the same old cautionary tale of a woman whose appetite for love exceeds what custom decrees she should settle for, and with the same conclusion: her hunger is its own inevitable punishment.
October 17, 2019
There's enough emotion and sheer tragedy to propel it to the finish, and its central performance lingers for the awful emotional trauma and humanity that it conveys.
October 17, 2019
!t's the actor's command of Garland's flickeringly complex emotions -- shame, fear and frustration mixed with enormous pride and self-possession -- that make this more than a good impersonation but a fascinating and hugely empathetic performance.
October 17, 2019
Judy is a beautiful homage to the woman being celebrated, powered by an astonishing central performance.
October 17, 2019
All you will remember of Judy is Zellweger, hoofing, howling, heartbroken and heartbreaking in a performance for the ages. Everything else is just setting.
October 17, 2019
Garland was a complicated mess and Zellweger truly captures her contradictory cocktail of confidence, desperation, ebullience, despair & stage fright. She's a has-been with a crinkled face and a defiant manner eager to reclaim her share of the spotlight.

Who its intended audience is supposed to be eludes me.

Zellweger delivers Oscar-worthy performance in "Judy."
October 16, 2019
There's nothing particularly groundbreaking or exciting about the film itself, but Zellweger's performance alone is well worth the price of admission.
October 15, 2019
Renee Zellweger's dedicated turn as a tragic Judy Garland elevates a film working with a tried and true formula to something of genuine wonder.
October 15, 2019
At once a celebration of an iconic star's courageous last stand and a cautionary tale about a brilliantly talented young girl whose childhood was stolen by an industry that eventually abandoned her.
October 14, 2019
The last big scene of 'Judy' probably cinches an Oscar for Zellweger, which would be ironic because the real Judy Garland failed to win one for her amazing performance in 'A Star Is Born.'
