Chicago Tribune - Michael Phillips
"Relief" is the word for it. It's a relief to see Robert De Niro giving an honest, effective starring performance in a project that does not stink and that, in fact, rises to a respectable level of filmmaking proficiency. How long has it been?

Chicago Reader - J.R. Jones
This is sentimental but dramatically solid, its placid themes fortified by De Niro.
63
St. Louis Post-Dispatch - Joe Williams
What's finest about Everybody's Fine is to watch a good fella groping hopefully toward old age.

Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
All that could redeem this thoroughly foreseeable unfolding would be colorful characters and good acting. Everybody's Fine comes close, but not close enough.

Variety - Unnamed
Though a bit too artful to merit the pejorative "tearjerker" label, the film is rigorously streamlined to deliver a good emotional uppercut by the end, and purely on the strength of its craft, it connects.
