The Bronze Reviews

The Bronze earns its title spot - nothing more but certainly nothing less. A spot on the podium is a spot on the podium.

The Bronze, and its anti-hero you love to hate, brings home the gold!

"The Bronze" tries so very hard to pull off funny with its one-liners, but the hateful and vicious attitude that follows the lead character around everywhere isn't cause for our sympathy.

Unfortunately, director Bryan Buckley's toothless and raunchy comedy does not quite land on its feet smoothly enough to earn a decent score from the sideline judges.
November 3, 2018
Relegates adolescent rage and insecurity to a steady stream of curse words and sexual innuendo. It mistakes vulgarity for vision.
October 14, 2017
Generally its humor built on the premise that if one f-bomb is funny, 20 of them in a row are 20 times funnier.

The Bronze is an unfunny, overlong parade of squandered potential. It's extremely frustrating.

The Bronze is an uninspired creation that feels like Tina Fey's Sarah Palin impression in a 'Little Britain' sketch.

Rauch's Greggory is a brash, foul-mouthed creation who bends the will of the proceedings away from outright satire of celebrity to something surprisingly more engaging.

The Bronze is a mutant baby of a movie that shouldn't work as well as it does.

[Melissa] Rauch shows that when The Big Bang Theory finally runs its course, she might be the one cast member with a movie future.
August 14, 2017
Be prepared for a level of vulgarity that hugs the film like a warm blanket, firmly rooting it in a state of suspended adolescence in which it dares you to find something endearing in our antiheroine, and often succeeds.

Dark comedy doesn't play with everyone, and the overall tone hops around too much. But did I have a blast watching it? Yup.

Rauch's character could easily be too cutesy, too cruel, or just too annoying if played by another actress. But audiences will love her particular brand of arrested development.
July 11, 2016
Relentlessly mean-spirited, but also very, very funny.
June 28, 2016
[The Bronze has] a tendency not to create a universe and drama, but to impose events, however unlikely and incongruous they may be, to fulfill a pre-determined arc.
April 19, 2016
Falling short in every way, The Bronze places last in the game of film comedy.
April 7, 2016
If there are a few sweet moments between Rauch and Middleditch here, they're all but erased by an ineffectual story... and an admittedly impressive void of genuine laughs.
April 5, 2016
No wonder 'Bronze' didn't bring home the gold.
April 4, 2016
The movie rises to its highest energy levels in scenes where Rauch has strong foils - and strong actors - to play off. Otherwise, it can be a bit of a slog.
