Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Earnest and well meaning and, while dangerously sentimental at times, never quite crosses the line into maudlin."
‑ Mike Hale, New York Times
"Pretentious profiles in post-9/11 grief and confusion, Clear Blue Tuesday manages the not-inconsiderable feat of insulting both the memory of the World Trade Center attacks and the musical genre."
‑ Nick Schager, Village Voice
"Often stilted and uninvolving amalgamation of drama, tragedy, romance and awkward musical numbers. Jan O'Dell steals the show with her genuinely heartfelt performance."
‑ Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru
"Theatre-inspired and cast-workshopped musical about several New Yorkers' lives in the wake of 9/11 is well-intentioned but off-off-off-off-Broadway."
‑ Frank Lovece, Film Journal International
"Want to experience the worst sort of theater without the bother or expense of heading to New York?"
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"Preoccupation with tragedy does not a narrative make."
‑ John Anderson, Variety
"Though naive in execution, the story gingerly bypasses loaded drama to pluck bushels of hope from obvious blight."
‑ Matthew Nestel, Boxoffice Magazine
"An overcrowded, emotionally erratic anthem of NYC endurance."
‑ S. James Snyder, Time Out New York
"A film that meditates upon post-9/11 psychology without an urgent sense of purpose or even an empathetic voice to guide us through the event's gnarl of grief isn't simply mediocre, it's dishonorable."
‑ Joseph Jon Lanthier, Slant Magazine
"The film's tepid songs are emblematic of its tepid characterizations."
‑ Ethan Alter, NYC Film Critic
