Critic Reviews for Same Kind of Different As Me

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (6)

  • It's so sincere and admirable that it seems churlish to voice objections, but the fact remains that it isn't very good.

  • "Same Kind of Different as Me" is a strange, sincere and sometimes clumsy plea for old-fashioned Christian empathy.

    Amy Nicholson

    Variety
    Top Critic
  • A film with a lovely, life-affirming, uplifting message - unfortunately delivered in such a heavy-handed, gooey-sweet manner that audiences will exit the theater in a near-diabetic coma.

    October 21, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • The very horrible complexities of racism and intolerance are simplified in ways inherent to many a Hollywood and faith-based film, all in the aim of glib uplift that may salve the individual spirit but solves absolutely nothing.

    October 20, 2017 | Full Review…
  • A blandly good looking, no frills, reasonably competent and occasionally emotional Message Movie, one whose message favors a color-blind approach to race relations, one designed to work entirely in favor of the desires of white people.

    Top Critic
  • It can be hard to disagree with the heart and events of this true tale, except for when the movie reveals itself to be mighty self-congratulatory.

Audience Reviews for Same Kind of Different As Me

  • Oct 19, 2017
    Same Kind of Different as Me is only worth a watch if you have no other movie to watch and you're left to decide whether to watch more or wait until more movies come out. Otherwise so, every miss of suspense makes its huge lack of fun drama here.
