Critic Reviews

  • C’mon C’mon is the kind of movie that invites reflection. It’s not building towards a larger cinematic event or full of explosions. It’s a sincere drama about relationships, told from the perspectives of different members of one family.

    Rating: 100/100
  • The character complexities grow out of Mills’ divinely extraordinary writing.

    Rating: 95/100
  • C’mon C’mon is a tender and turbulent melodrama that amplifies its power with a documentary current. The result is a film of an extraordinary amplitude; it’s both poised and frenetic, contemplative and active, heartily sentimental and astringently contentious, intensively intimate and expansively world-embracing, exactingly composed and wildly spontaneous.

    Rating: 90/100
    The New Yorker
  • Even if C’mon C’mon occasionally feels like navel-gazing, it’s too open-hearted and generous of spirit to miss.

    Rating: 83/100
  • Mike Mills delivers a naturalistic and unconventional homage to the bond between children and adults.

    Rating: 80/100
    Time Out
  • It’s a wispy yet insightful and emotionally satisfying film.

  • C’mon C’mon is a nice movie about characters who are so nice that I almost feel bad for not being nicely disposed toward them or this movie, even with Joaquin Phoenix as the guy and Gaby Hoffmann as the sister.
