The Film Stage - Dan Mecca
One hopes this is a smaller film that benefits from this moment. Many are staying in and staying safe, looking for art that will comfort them like a warm blanket. Look no further than The High Note.
The Globe and Mail (Toronto) - Barry Hertz
This is still a light and frothy rom-com, predictable and charming in equal measure, and most comfortable when it fits the efficient mold of genre obligations. But when it wants to, it can really crank that charm up to 11.
The Playlist - Andrew Crump
The pleasures found in The High Note are many and often minor; Ganatra builds the film on casual chemistry between Johnson and Ross, with Harrison Jr., fresh off of his 2019 one-two punch of “Luce” and “Waves,” popping up as Johnson’s alternative foil.
Entertainment Weekly - Leah Greenblatt
The movie has its moments, some of them genuinely delightful. Still, there's a world where The High Note could have struck a stronger, deeper chord, and resonated.
The Hollywood Reporter - David Rooney
It's the kind of plush, pleasurable comfort viewing that goes down as easily as a favorite artist's hits compilation.
