IndieWire - David Ehrlich
Palmer isn’t exactly high art, but it’s no small feat for something so predictable to avoid feeling dishonest.

Movie Nation - Roger Moore
If Palmer isn’t that demanding of star and audience, it’s a perfectly serviceable story for at least reminding the film world that you’re out there, available and perfectly capable of delivering the dramatic goods.

The Associated Press - Lindsey Bahr
Compelling performances make Palmer watchable and fairly affecting despite the fact that we’ve seen this kind of thing so many times before.

The Hollywood Reporter - John DeFore
A capable cast helps the pic rise above its formulaic nature (take out a drunken hookup and some language, and this is a thoroughly mainstream family film, at least for families of non-homophobes), but doesn’t make it a must-watch by any means.

TheWrap - Elizabeth Weitzman
What Palmer is, in every sense of the word, is decent. It’s familiar, and predictable, and a little bit hokey. But it’s also genuinely moving and surprisingly memorable, thanks to its two leads.
