...a parable on the outsider, with a lot of healthy rumination of disability in the mix, but like the best efforts, it doesn't make a big show of 'daring to talk about it'.

Writer-directors Tyler Nilson and Michael Schwartz have crafted a very pleasing movie that is funny, touching and somewhat uplifting. Too often, we forget there are a lot of good people in the world. This is a movie that celebrates good people.

Representation for people with genetic disorders still has a long way to go, but this is the rare film that seems to be moving the needle instead of placating the masses.

LeBeouf's casting was inspired, because his chemistry with Gottsagen lights up the screen and LeBeouf, who has always been a good actor who made bad choices, gets the chance to really show what he can do.

If you are looking for a feel-good film that lauds the overdue representation of humankind in all its shapes and forms, The Peanut Butter Falcon is the way to go.

The Peanut Butter Falcon is a rambling, ramshackle comedy-drama that like the makeshift boat at the centre of the film, should not float, but does so anyway.

One of those almost tactile films where you can nearly touch and smell and feel everything on screen - the courageous intimacy feeds an understated narrative, giving room for the performances to drive home the emotion.

The Peanut Butter Falcon is an absolute gem.

An undeniably cheerful feature. [Full review in Spanish]

You have to be made out of stone to be unmoved by The Peanut Butter Falcon.

It succeeds despite its flaws, at least, in being zany, lightweight and crowd-pleasing entertainment.

[The] pitch-perfect casting and rustic setting lend its familiar tale an edginess that somehow both offsets and enhances its inherent sweetness.

There's a lot of subtlety where backstory is concerned and plenty of heart for the present. A lot of this is due to the genuine rapport between LaBeouf and Gottsagen.

Talk about a feel good movie! The Peanut Butter Falcon will warm your heart, time and time again.

...a mostly compelling little drama...

The whimsy lapses into sentimentality in places, and Dakota Johnson is sold somewhat short as Zak's compassionate carer. But her rapport with Gottsagen is as effective as LaBeouf's, while Nigel Bluck's widescreen waterscapes are sublime.

You know where you are, you can feel the location...really atmospheric with a lovely story.
October 21, 2019
The Peanut Butter Falcon is a charming movie, filled with humanity and heart, even if it doesn't always make narrative sense.
October 20, 2019
Slightly overcooked but very sweet.

[LaBeouf's] harmonious connection with Gottsagen pretty much comprises the entire film, but such is the relaxed timbre established by Nilson and Schwartz, you're happy to hang out with them.
