Reviews

Variety - Dennis Harvey
While the overall feel is a bit derivative and contrived, there are nonetheless plenty of bitingly sharp lines and performance moments to keep this well-cast ensemble piece percolating along.

Observer - Rex Reed
Petunia augurs more titillation than it delivers and only works occasionally.
50
The Hollywood Reporter - Frank Scheck
Features a top-notch cast, a few beautifully observed moments, and some amusingly bitchy dialogue. But its rambling, episodic structure and gallery of troubled characters will ultimately prove too off-putting to attract theatrical audiences.

The New York Times - Neil Genzlinger
It’s possible to make a great movie out of family dysfunction, but this one is too short on insight to rank with the best of the genre.

New York Daily News - Joe Neumaier
Even in shabbily put together dramedies, such as this one, there can be a glimmer of light. Here it’s Christine Lahti’s anguished, nuanced turn as a wife and mother excited to begin a new phase with her husband.
