Reviews

Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
As a well-crafted, well-written and well-acted entertainment, it drew me in and got its job done.

Philadelphia Inquirer - Carrie Rickey
English wrangles her talent like a virtuoso. Best is Murphy Brown herself, Candice Bergen.

New York Magazine (Vulture) - David Edelstein
It's fascinating trying to separate the thirties material from the mostly maladroit additions.
50
The Hollywood Reporter - Unnamed
The film repeatedly sacrifices dramatic punch for political correctness.

Entertainment Weekly - Owen Gleiberman
The movie is a feminist lesson instead of what it should have been (and once was): a tough, synthetic, high-gloss entertainment that wears its heart on its lacquered fingernails.
