Critic Reviews for Made in Dagenham

All Critics (124) | Top Critics (31)

Made in Dagenham gamely depicts an interesting bit of history, but its real message is a matter of principle.

A spirited look -- well written, beautifully acted, full of uplift -- at lovably cheeky heroines on the march for a little respect.

It's a nice breather indeed.

Denver Post
Top Critic

It's an entertaining, humanist slice of social history scored with a soundtrack of upbeat late-'60s radio hits.

The likable little British import "Made in Dagenham" delivers an overdue valentine to some unsung heroines of the people-power revolution.

The real women of the Ford plant - seen briefly and tantalizing in footage played over the credits - surely could tell a more compelling story than this agreeable but overfamiliar effort; perhaps some documentarian, some day, will give them the chance.

Audience Reviews for Made in Dagenham

½

An inspirational story for women's rights and good on them, however this movie is just boring. Bob Hoskins is brilliant and the cast is brilliant but not my sort of movie!

An entertaining, but curiously, slightly frustratingly middle class image of working class struggle.

Solid cast - Sally Hawkins and Bob Hoskins - but this film's beginning is brutally boring, and in all it's too didactic, moving slowly and belabouring most plot points. The subject matter is important, and it's not without it's moments, but the dialogue is clunky and poorly written, veering dangerously close to Movie of the Week territory by times.
