November 11, 2002
A simple, sometimes maddeningly slow film that has just enough charm and good acting to make it interesting, but is ultimately pulled under by the pacing and lack of creativity within.

The whole movie consists of talk. The characters talk about what used to happen, what's going to happen, what happened while you were looking the other way and listening to people talk.

It all starts to smack of a Hallmark Hall of Fame, with a few four letter words thrown in that are generally not heard on television.

The torpid tempo only compounds the self-conscious coyness.

A very pretty after-school special. It's an effort to watch this movie, but it eventually pays off and is effective if you stick with it.

November 1, 2002
It's an earnest debut full of heartfelt performances, but is ultimately let down by a story that is all too predictable.

The film is weighed down by supporting characters who are either too goodly, wise and knowing or downright comically evil.

January 24, 2003
There's certainly nothing objectionable about Tully, but there's nothing remarkable either. It resides in that cinematic middle ground of not-bad, not-great, just okay.
November 8, 2002
Pays close and respectful attention to its characters, allowing them time to develop and deepen.

A wonderful film.
January 2, 2003
A small-town movie in a big-city world.

It brims with characters, incidents and dialogue that are alternately sharp and lyrical, and sometimes both at the same time.

Tully is in many ways the perfect festival film: a calm, self-assured portrait of small town regret, love, duty and friendship that appeals to the storytelling instincts of a slightly more literate filmgoing audience.

A beautifully acted and emotionally rich film set in Nebraska about the unfolding of love and the damage done to a family by a long-kept secret.
November 17, 2002
quietly pulls you into its sun drenched style of American Gothic in the Heartland

The revelations... are not in the plot but in the rhythm of life and the pace of days (brought to life perfectly in the crisp, bright, sunlit photography)...

An impressive debut; it looks and feels like life.

The believable young people growing on this plot of soil are never predictable; neither are the unmannered, affecting performances.
