Critic Reviews for Miss You Already

All Critics (102) | Top Critics (23)

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.

Is this really an honest portrait of a beautiful and intense friendship between women? What's intense about it, or beautiful, or honest?

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.

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.

Part-"Cake," part-"50/50" and a whole lot of "Beaches" ...

The film is a soulless parade of movie conventions and rote acting.

Audience Reviews for Miss You Already

Putting away the off editing and scrambled plot structure, this is a terribly depressing and unrelenting story.

Nicholas Lewis

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.

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
