The arrival of dream nanny Tully produces some great insight on what society expects from mothers and women in general, but the story fails to develop into anything satisfying.
January 23, 2019
An extremely well written and acted film.

Tully is a return to form for both director Jason Reitman and writer Diablo Cody. Featuring great performances, an unflinching and engrossing look on motherhood and a witty, acerbic script. Tully is a film worth looking out for.

Theron's portrayal of Marlo and what her baby's arrival does to her is rivetingly brutal. Night nanny Tully understands the mechanics of motherhood but not its realities and is so irritating she gets in the way of a nuanced story of postnatal depression.

Two-thirds of the movie is great and Theron is once again excellent - for a raw, yet offbeat, slice of dramatic comedy, Tully delivers the goods. Mostly.
November 11, 2018
It's awkward, perceptive, real, and smart. Cody and Reitman have a synergy that you just don't see from most moviemaking teams.
November 1, 2018
In its humble 96 minutes, Tully manages more than most films that linger over two hour.

Honestly, I expected the parenting tropes to be far worse ... There simply weren't enough bodily fluids to make this a truly authentic parental experience.
October 25, 2018
A timeless ode to the unappreciated day-to-day tasks of being a mother.
October 16, 2018
What appears to begin as a darkly comical look at the challenges of parenthood eventually blossoms into a profoundly hopeful statement on the importance of self-love...
October 16, 2018
A deeply important and incredibly relevant film which breaks the often verboten subject matter on what parental life is really like behind closed doors.
October 10, 2018
Tully tackles the subject of motherhood by taking a sincere approach, anchored by Charlize Theron's brutally honest portrayal.
September 10, 2018
This comedy drama is blighted by navel gazing but saved by some gritty, insightful acting from Charlize Theron.
August 29, 2018
By avoiding clichés and crafting real personalities [Tully] becomes an enduring portrait, beautifully endearing in its blemishes.
August 27, 2018
It's a story that will speak loudly, and volumes, to many women.
August 27, 2018
Tully is one of the best comedies of the year, fluttering between dark family fair and a Mary Poppins self-help guide
August 25, 2018
The credit may say "directed by Jason Reitman" but you know this is Diablo Cody's movie.
August 24, 2018
Playing opposite ends of a spectrum -- one despairing and worn down, one so hopeful and youthful -- [Davis and Theron] could both have become caricatures of those people and never do.
August 24, 2018
Tully is a genuine portrayal of how overwhelming life can be and is elevated by Charlize Theron's outstanding performance.
August 23, 2018
A bitter, bracing valentine not just to motherhood, but to womanhood, and an exploration of the fact that those are not always the same things.
