IndieWire - Kate Erbland
While the film attempts to thread a tricky needle between absolute drama and wacky comedy — dramedy! — Harris’ script is actually at its best when leaning more into the story’s tougher stuff.

The Playlist - Marya E. Gates
It’s nice to see McCarthy and O’Dowd in roles that showcase their emotional range; one just wishes it were in a project worthy of their talents.

TheWrap - Elizabeth Weitzman
The smooth professionalism of so many outstanding participants can’t help but elevate a very ordinary film a little bit higher. Despite the best efforts of both McCarthy and O’Dowd, though, there’s never a moment where it truly takes flight.

Screen Daily - Tim Grierson
The actors lend sincerity to the proceedings, but the film keeps cheating to achieve its dramatic payoffs.

Variety - Guy Lodge
Suffice it to say that The Starling’s emotional arcs are as narratively complete as they are psychologically dashed-off.
