Newark Star-Ledger

There's nothing here to catch our eye, or our interest - just AfterSchool Special plot twists and family battles-and-bonding, spiced up with secrets and revelations that aren't nearly as unexpected, or revealing, as the filmmakers might hope.

A modest drama most notable for its heartfelt performances.

New York Post

Director and co-screenwriter Lisa Albright uses Peters to lend some needed verve to a pretty standard, down-market milieu.

Village Voice

After a hoot of an entrance by Bernadette Peters showboating a tune from the rafters at a church wedding, Coming Up Roses takes a nosedive into despair and stays there.

Eric Hynes
Time Out New York

An escalating melodrama in which drug deals, suicide attempts and sexual predation evoke playtime fabrication rather than world-weary experience.
