Critic Reviews for The Year of Spectacular Men

All Critics (31) | Top Critics (9) | Fresh (20) | Rotten (11)

  • Given that the most affecting love stories involve the sisters and their mother, the few scenes with this close-knit trio are the film's highlights.

    June 21, 2018 | Full Review…
  • For a film that marks both a screenwriting debut and a big screen directing debut, "The Year Of Spectacular Men" makes very few rookie mistakes, and the ones it does are easily outweighed by the snap of the dialogue.

    June 15, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Not everything works, but the Deutch sisters are a delight in every scene they share, and Madelyn has an unusual screen presence and a feel for the absurd that marks this 27-year-old as a talent to watch.

    June 15, 2018 | Full Review…
  • A good-looking yet slim and meandering hybrid of a romantic comedy, family drama and coming-of-age story.

    June 15, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Lea Thompson's theatrical directing debut works best as a showcase for daughters Madelyn and Zoey Deutch who bring a real life zing to their fictional sister act

    June 14, 2018 | Rating: C | Full Review…
  • Even in... spotty passages, it is the movie's saving grace that its family acting troupe faces the gobbledygook with openhearted silliness and sincerity.
