Critic Reviews for The Year Dolly Parton Was My Mom

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (2) | Rotten (3)

  • An ingratiating but overly contrived Canadian coming-of-age tale.

    March 18, 2011 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • The Year My Mom Was Dolly Parton relies on a good but not great script, well-drawn characters and performances and a pleasant, fuzzy sense of a simpler time.

    March 17, 2011 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • A wonderfully low-key but engaging movie about identity.

    March 18, 2011 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • There are a few good moments in The Year Dolly Parton Was My Mom, but you have to get past a lot of distractions to appreciate them.
