Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A well-executed scene can be followed by another where Clark shows no sense of the tone of which he'd just been in such tight control."
‑ Jeff Millar, Houston Chronicle
"It's hard for Another Day in Paradise to bring anything new to the well-worn road traveled by thugs on the run. But director Larry Clark and an energetic cast keep things jumping in this morality tale about the down and dirty."
‑ Jeff Strickler, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"Director Larry Clark has served up another gritty look at lowlife scum, but the results this time aren't nearly as fascinating."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"With talent like James Woods involved on both sides of the camera, I expect more quality."
‑ Robin Clifford, Reeling Reviews
"James Woods proves yet again why he is consistently one of the best actors working today."
‑ J.D. Lafrance, Film Threat
‑ Rick Groen, Globe and Mail
"As contradictory as it is energetic, the film takes as many risks as its people do and as a result strikes a highly contemporary nerve."
‑ Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"This is a strong, powerful movie."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Another Day In Paradise is so generally overwrought that the willing suspension of disbelief is not really an option. On the other hand, you may find yourself caring about the characters."
‑ Liz Braun, Jam! Movies
"For a base, downtrodden ordeal Clark's film is one compelling trip of a movie."
‑ Tom Meek, Film Threat
"A routine genre film."
‑ Manohla Dargis, L.A. Weekly
"There's not much new here, but then there's so rarely something new at the movies that we're sometimes grateful to see the familiar done well."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"As close to 'mainstream' as Clarks' ever going to get ... which isn't much."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
"Woods is great as usual."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, San Francisco Examiner
"I never walk out in the middle of a film, but with Another Day in Paradise, I came pretty darn close."
‑ Margaret A. McGurk, Cincinnati Enquirer
