Being Frank

Critics Consensus

Being Frank suggests Jim Gaffigan may have a real future as a dramatic actor -- if only he's offered projects that don't suffer from so much wasted potential.

Critic Reviews for Being Frank

All Critics (40) | Top Critics (12) | Fresh (13) | Rotten (27)

  • Sure there are some laughs in this dark comedy, but frankly it's a story about an ordinary man who lies to the people he loves and teaches his son to do the same.

  • What a jerk. But what an interesting jerk to be at the center of a quirky and entertaining deadpan comedy/drama.

    June 21, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Unfortunately, in the filmmaker's narrative-feature debut, she takes the theme of betrayal and turns it into fodder for a sitcom, and not a particularly funny one at that.

    June 18, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • It adopts a tonally dissonant and thematically confused approach to what is, in essence, little more than a Lifetime movie writ large.

    June 17, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • The setup (script by Glen Lakin) is full of wacko screwball potential, some of which is mined, some of which misses the boat.

    June 14, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Gaffigan deals in exaggerated grimaces that shift back and forth from panic to guarded sincerity, which make for most of the movie's humor aside from some cutting lines by the supporting cast.
