An honest and powerful story following two best friends, Milly and Jess, as they navigate life's highs and lows.

Critic Reviews for Miss You Already

All Critics (113) | Top Critics (29)

  • There's a tough-minded drama struggling to break through the movie's glossy veneer-a contemplation of the black hole of death that, sooner or later, becomes the center of life.

    Nov 16, 2015 | Full Review…
  • Is this really an honest portrait of a beautiful and intense friendship between women? What's intense about it, or beautiful, or honest?

    Nov 12, 2015 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
  • In the march to the end, "Miss You Already" grinds its gears through the late stages of cancer, following a predictable and cliche path. Each scene is a yank on the heartstrings, a poke in the tear ducts, its intents and machinations plainly obvious.

    Nov 6, 2015 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • It observes, rather astutely, that there is a power imbalance in a certain kind of friendship where one half plays the ringleader and scene-stealer while the other is the sidekick and enabler.

    Nov 6, 2015 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Part-"Cake," part-"50/50" and a whole lot of "Beaches" ...

    Nov 6, 2015 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • The film is a soulless parade of movie conventions and rote acting.

    Enjoyed, but wow did I hate Drew's husband in this. So selfish and such a clod, couldn't open his mouth without me wanting to strangle him. I don't think I've screamed "shut up" so much at a fictional character in my life, and I'm sure he is meant to be likeable. The rest of the characters I liked, even though there was definitely flaws on all but Drew's. Her character is kind of too good to be true. It's a well told story of friendship and the devastation of cancer. Yes, I cried a little.

    For the subject matter grittier than My Sisters Keeper, however towards the end it got a bit out of kilter losing some depth in exchange for light fluffy sentimentality. Not too sure about the slot machine catharsis either!

    Miss You Already wrings its tears mostly with honesty and provides great performances from Drew Barrymore and Toni Collette who takes an unsentimental approach to her flawed character. The story is what's lacking here with nothing new to offer for the cancer movie mold. Rating: 66

    Superb performances from Drew Barrymore and the always amazing Toni Collette shine in this emotional tale of life and friendship in the face of life threatening cancer. Emotional, emotive, funny and engaging. A real surprise.
