Reviews

The Hollywood Reporter - David Rooney
An utterly formulaic but sweet movie that does what a crowd-pleaser is meant to do.
70
Los Angeles Times - Annlee Ellingson
Director David Frankel has crafted a sweet, funny, heartfelt film, and while we may know all along how it all turns out, Paul's signature performance still gives us chills.
60
The Guardian - Catherine Shoard
The movie is strongest is when it strips away the facts and focuses on the emotional notes.
60
Empire - Unnamed
A fluffy but fun telling of a rags to riches story.
60
Time Out London - Cath Clarke
The problem with the film is that Potts’s life story has been put through the Hollywood meatgrinder. Awkward details have been changed or erased – they’ve made Potts Welsh (he grew up in Bristol) and eliminated his siblings.
