Critic Reviews for Mr. Chibbs

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3)

Never proves compelling.

May 6, 2017 | Full Review…

Campbell's film commiserates with a rudderless man who is reconciling his gifts with his burdens, responsibilities and excuses.

May 3, 2017 | Full Review…

The film, like its subject, frustrates in its inability to focus; there is no deep inquiry into what makes Anderson tick. It's like skimming a stone across a lake.

while "Mr. Chibbs" never manages to transcend its formulaic approach, it remains a minor key delight, a thoughtful, resonant look at what it means to be Kenny Anderson.

May 25, 2017 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

In almost every instance the film moves on at the exact moment where it seems it's about to get interesting, never pushing beyond that point.

May 11, 2017 | Rating: 5.5/10 | Full Review…

A sobering, if less than comprehensive, portrait of a would-be NBA legend's rocky post-basketball life.
