Film Threat - Unnamed
This year’s diamond in the rough, a small movie that is big in heart and promises to be big at the box office.

TV Guide Magazine - Maitland McDonagh
A quirky charmer.

USA Today - Claudia Puig
Don't be put off by the title. This is no sequel, but a surprisingly charming British comedy that is only tangentially associated with "Rambo."
70
Village Voice - Unnamed
At its most likable, Son of Rambow evokes the rush of discovery that turns budding cinephiles into lifers--that delight in finding a film that seems to express or coalesce some inchoate yearning, including a yen to share.
70
The New York Times - Manohla Dargis
A likable, lightly sticky valentine to childhood, the 1980s and the dawning of movie love, Son of Rambow was written and directed by Garth Jennings and produced by Nick Goldsmith, the duo behind the underappreciated fantasy "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy."
