Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"A modest drama most notable for its heartfelt performances."
‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"Director and co-screenwriter Lisa Albright uses Peters to lend some needed verve to a pretty standard, down-market milieu."
‑ Farran Smith Nehme, New York Post
"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."
‑ Marsha McCreadie, Village Voice
"This first feature from Ms. Albright does not augur a brilliant future."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"An escalating melodrama in which drug deals, suicide attempts and sexual predation evoke playtime fabrication rather than world-weary experience."
‑ Eric Hynes, Time Out New York
