indieWIRE - Kate Erbland
The charm of The Meddler isn't the kind that benefits from big pushes forward in narrative or massive plot movements, but it revels in heart-warming humor, vibrant characters and what's clearly a deep affection for its story.
Time Out New York - David Ehrlich
With a plot that plays like a string of incidental encounters, The Meddler could easily have felt like a glorified sitcom. But its heroine's grief, her goodness and her complicated relationship with her daughter all feel so lived-in and true that the film stays grounded.
The A.V. Club - Jesse Hassenger
Here Scafaria makes nice use of her widescreen frame, and cuts the movie together crisply-a lot of the jokes actually come from the cuts, and the way they punctuate the often pitch-perfect dialogue.
Entertainment Weekly - Leah Greenblatt
Her character, reportedly based on writer-director Lorene Scafaria's own mother, isn't drawn with any particular depth or nuance (and the broad New Yawk accent Sarandon tries on is about as authentically Brooklyn as a Sara Lee bagel).
