July 24, 2020
Two hours of . . . lazy filmmaking and tired, harmful stereotypes against women and the mentally ill, all wearing a thin sheen of imposter silk to pass itself off as a cautionary tale.

The movie has enough blinding anger to pull you along, and Perry plays around with one's sympathies by making Henson's character increasingly monstrous, but the pallid dialogue is a constant drag on the story.

Perry doesn't seem particularly concerned with the craft of his film, which is disappointing because he is so clearly capable of better.

As an unintentional comedy, "Acrimony" can be quite hilarious! As a thriller, the characters are so over-the-top you will wonder, "What planet are these people from?!"
March 21, 2019
A movie that gaslights its own characters at the expense of tricking its audience.

I didn't walk away feeling that I wasted my life, but I also would never see this again. Tyler Perry took half a step in the right direction, but it still wasn't good. At least he knows who his audience is.
August 30, 2018
Impressively misconceived and mishandled.

As much as Henson tries to her best, her performance can't overshadow the incompetence of Perry's script and direction.

In Acrimony, Tyler Perry works the female character up to those stereotypical roles, educating the audience on just how they are made. This is not enough to save the film from its own cliché and culturally damaging ending, however.

"Acrimony" is a study in frustrating episodic storytelling and the revolving stages of one's reaction to where it very slowly goes. Ultimately, by the end credits, the only acrimony left is from the bamboozled viewer.

Acrimony is presented with a typical filmmaking choice or an absurd one, it goes with the latter.

From the trailer, the film seems dark, full of deceit, vengeance, and, surely, a twist or two that will explain Melinda's rage. Acrimony, unfortunately, is two hours longer than the trailer, and half as intriguing.
April 5, 2018
It's all very entertaining and dumb, the posh settings pushing the drama further into the realm of escapist fantasy.
April 5, 2018
A little less Acrimony and a lot more time away from Perry might do us all a world of good.
April 5, 2018
[Tyler] Perry implies that not only does she belong there, but she forged every link in her chains.
April 4, 2018
Despite all its Fatal Attraction-style trappings, Acrimony is a bloated drama at odds with itself and its characters. Who exactly are we supposed to root for here?
April 2, 2018
[Tyler] Perry is up to his old (and profitable) tricks, and unfortunately, it's neither inspiring nor relatable.
April 2, 2018
Compared to, say, Boo! A Madea Halloween, Acrimony actually had a bit of promise -- but it's even more of a disappointment because of the fact that it lives up to absolutely none of it.
April 1, 2018
On the whole, it's ridiculous, incredulous and outlandish, but at least Perry knows how to make his practically-trademarked brand of crazy valued clap-back entertainment.

Acrimony is Taraji P. Henson's Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.
