Variety - Amy Nicholson
Gaudet and Pullapilly argue, cheekily and convincingly, that the real crooks are the unseen conglomerates who’ve created a society that devalues products and their consumers.

The Playlist - Lauren J. Coates
While it’s hardly the funniest film of the year, the based-on-a-true-story couponing antics and thoughtful look at motherhood and grief make Queenpins worth the watch.

Arizona Republic - Bill Goodykoontz
Writers and directors Aron Gaudet and Gita Pullapilly can’t seem to decided whether to make an offbeat comedy about two under-appreciated women turning to crime or a mismatched buddy cop comedy. So they made both. It’s not a seamless fit.

Slashfilm - Josh Spiegel
Queenpins boasts a cast of talented ringers, who elevate the muddled material far more than it deserves, without actually resulting in an all-around good movie.

Movie Nation - Roger Moore
The first act of “Queenpins” makes you giddy at the comic possibilities, but the finale is the final straw in the letdown it too-quickly becomes.
