The Kindness of Strangers

Critics Consensus

A talented onscreen ensemble is done no favors by The Kindness of Strangers, which searches for meaning and comes up empty.

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (11) | Fresh (4) | Rotten (21)

  • A syrupy brew thick with twee and an abundance of cringe-inducing moments pulling at heartstrings.

    February 14, 2020 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • The movie functions like one of those star-studded Garry Marshall ensemble movies but made terribly sad until the last few minutes, when a tacked-on happy ending arrives in time for the credits.

  • [D]ear lord, I've been searching high and low for something nice to say about this mess, and I have come up nearly empty.

    December 3, 2019 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
  • The movie, so determined to celebrate small acts of kindness among those who have least, feels a little too calculated and emphatic - a tearjerker that doesn't quite draw tears.

    February 10, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • I think they've probably hit bottom with this howler, a criss-crossing ensemble piece set in New York and featuring a rogues' gallery of non-characters slowly learning to appreciate the transformative power of (sick bucket please) "forgiveness".

  • Even Home Alone 2 is far more indelible than The Kindness of Strangers.
