Los Angeles Times - Gary Goldstein
Anchored by a nicely understated performance by Seann William Scott, Just Before I Go effectively juggles a wealth of genuine, at times profound, emotion with quite a bit of nutty-raunchy humor.
40
The Hollywood Reporter - Frank Scheck
The film falters when it ham-fistedly attempts to detour into sensitive drama.
38
New York Post - Kyle Smith
Just Before I Go is a “Garden State” retread in which filthy jokes gradually cede ground to sentimental slush.
20
New York Daily News - Joe Neumaier
The former “Friends” star clearly wanted something special, but sadly the result is ... this.

The New York Times - Stephen Holden
Just Before I Go, the directorial debut of Courteney Cox, lurches along a wobbly line between salacious comic nastiness and nauseating sentimentality. The two strains are so poorly integrated that the screenplay (by David Flebotte) feels like pieces from two different projects mashed together with little oversight.
