Troop Zero Reviews

March 11, 2020
Funny, truthful and touching but never saccharine, this brilliantly cast family movie written by Lucy Alibar (Beasts of the Southern Wild) is one of the most delightful things streaming anywhere.

Cloying, very cutesy, and very exhausting.

As I was enjoying the sweet and simple and warmly funny pleasures of "Troop Zero," I was thinking it had to be based on a popular Young Adult novel.

What we have here is a classic snobs-vs.-slobs type of standoff, an underdog tale slathered in Seventies Southern Gothic quirk.

There is a lot to admire in this movie about girls daring to be proudly, defiantly different, but it never lives up to its otherworldly promise.

A movie that's content to make do with whatever spare parts are lying around, and eventually does so more successfully than one might expect.

Pleasant enough but never quite as emotionally gripping as a coming-of-age story about acceptance can be, Troop Zero scores a handful of memorable moments when it lets its freak flag fly.

"Troop Zero" is bursting with personality and stylistic flourishes; it might be too twee for some, but it's better to let yourself be won over by its sincerity and sweetness, tempered by just enough sadness and quirk.

What "Troop Zero" lacks in complexity, it makes up for in heart.

It's not trying to reinvent the wheel with the story it's telling, but it's made memorable by all the ways it adds stardust to the formula.

Janney can't do much with her garden-variety stick in the mud, though, and Davis' character is saddled with way more lifelong discontent than this otherwise flimsy role can bear.

Troop Zero goes down easy like the best cinematic comfort food.

Gaffigan and Janney offer just what their parts in the story need, but Davis keeps it all on the rails.
