Merely being different doesn't always equal good.

August 11, 2005
A dreary, stagnant story about people who make no effort to think or grow.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

Junebug is a textbook case of filmmakers who can't make up their minds about their characters; it's a failure of nerve disguised as dramatic ambiguity.

A quirky, moderately entertaining, mildly depressing, altogether frustrating work...Too artsy by half.

The many well-drawn characters, make Junebug a pleasure to watch, but the plotting is dull, and the script leaves too many questions.

You can call Junebug an unwanted, but much needed homecoming, mostly celebrated by the hearty welcome of George's sister-in-law Ashley Johnsten, played by Amy Adams.
