Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Unfortunately, the juxtaposition of such country-music icons with the story's cringe-worthy treacle has one siding with Michael's bah-humbug attitude."
‑ Annlee Ellingson, Los Angeles Times
"Despite the story's tenuous rigging and too-obvious sentimentalism, the actors give it grounding and warm appeal -- and really, who couldn't fall for the rictus-grinned Lovett playing the wacky Christmas-crazy neighbor?"
‑ Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
"Demonstrating that heavy marijuana use really does impair judgment, Willie Nelson appears in the film."
‑ John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
"There's a sweet message about family and forgiveness at the heart of Angels Sing, but the tune is a bit stale."
‑ Matthew Odam, Austin American-Statesman
"Not sure how it made it off the Hallmark Channel to the big screen."
‑ Matthew Razak,
""Angels Sing" is a music video disguised as a holiday movie, populated by musicians disguised as actors."
‑ Neil Genzlinger, New York Times
""Angels Sing" is a shameless holiday movie, one that will stop at nothing - even killing off characters - to try to wring one last bit of emotion out of the audience."
‑ Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic
"There are enough tunes and sweet moments to make Angels Sing the kind of Christmas movie I can see coming back to in Decembers to come."
‑ Alonso Duralde, Linoleum Knife
"Angels Sing is a heartfelt but less-than-polished piece of work that isn't for everyone...But graded on a Christmas-movie curve, it actually isn't bad."
‑ Jen Chaney, The Dissolve
"There's a lot of onscreen music-making, some of it amazing, the rest Santa-related."
‑ Chris Packham, Village Voice
"Sappy, star-studded holiday flick is clean family fun."
‑ Grace Montgomery, Common Sense Media
"This sugarcoated Christmas tale is reminiscent of an old Roy Rogers movie, a musical Western with a moral message."
‑ Amy Smith, Austin Chronicle
"A musically gifted cast, a couple of cute conceits and decent scenes, but dreadfully obvious and thin."
‑ Roger Moore, McClatchy-Tribune News Service
