Critic Consensus: Enthusiastically unpleasant and mostly unfunny, The Bronze fails to stick the landing -- or much else along the way.

Critic Reviews for The Bronze
There are some decent laughs here (especially for a well choreographed sex scene) and even an amusing soundtrack, but there's just not enough story to go around.
The plot is beyond basic and the dialogue so crude it almost feels like an R-rated cartoon. Still, The Bronze has a loony Napoleon Dynamite-meets-Talladega Nights-on-the-balance-beam charm.
This ostensibly edgy comedy didn't wring a single laugh out of me until maybe fifteen minutes before the finale.
I wouldn't want to live next to Hope, but it is fascinating to watch her. And every so often it's refreshing to have a movie that dares to say - you know, no matter what all the screenwriting gurus tell you, some characters never change.
Audience Reviews for The Bronze
If you were to put a horny, immature 13 yr old, a lust for cruelty psychopath and an aging, bitter gymnast in a room and asked them to write a script, this is what you'd end up with. This movie is too cruel to be funny, too crass to be a drama, and too immature to be taken seriously as a real movie. The creators of this crap need to seriously grow up if they intend on trying to write a real script. Rauch's Big Bang Theory fame can't save this garbage. She's one messed up lady if she thinks this movie is entertaining.
Not sure one could label this movie a comedy, though I was amused by the antics of the principle character. I thought Raunch carried that character's personality perfectly. Would I recommend this to a friend: absolutely, but only if he/she were pretty broad-minded. One thing about the 'Tomatometer' (Critic's evaluations), you can discount it completely. These guys couldn't possibly make a living in any other venue, they're so out of touch with the audience. If you don't like crude and lewd or you're a prude, don't watch this movie. If you appreciate a bit of shock value, enjoy.
The amount of sexual content and nudity is offensive. The Bronze is unfunny, unlikable, and simply unwatchable. There's hardly any humorous material in the script and the acting is mediocre.
