Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"As with all banner-head stories, there comes a point when you tire of being screamed at."
‑ Melissa Anderson, Time Out New York
"Far too readily tends to play this pathetic story for laughs."
‑ Manohla Dargis, New York Times
"The in-your-face documentary recalls the sensational tabloid story from the 1950s."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Stranger than fiction: This decades-long amour fou is so astonishing in its twists and turns that it's hard to believe it's factual. While contextualizing the tale in the pre-feminist era, Klores leaves some mysteries open, thus allowing for speculation"
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"Quite brilliant."
‑ Kim Voynar, Cinematical
"A Bronx tale full of jaw-dropping behavior and jaw-dropping hairdos."
‑ Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
"Particularly because many viewers have already seen the TV-news version, almost any other genre would have been even more compelling -- a fictionalized drama, perhaps, or Truman Capote-style narrative non-fiction."
‑ Kerry Lengel, Arizona Republic
"Crazy Love...sidles up to us, thrills and surprises us, seduces us with the pop flavor of its mid-century paperback aesthetic and its titillating tabloid tale. Crazy Love is chummy."
‑ Nick Davis, Nick's Flick Picks
"There hasn't been a documentary this sick since Kirby Dick's Sick!"
‑ David N. Butterworth,
"The film lassoes you in with "ya gotta hear this" prurience."
‑ Phil Villarreal, Arizona Daily Star
"It's too easy to feel superior to these two people and their marriage in hell for the sake of some easy (or even uneasy) laughter."
‑ Andrew Sarris, New York Observer
"You can't make this stuff up."
‑ Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
"Apresenta, mesmo que de forma convencional, uma história de amor fascinante em suas insanas reviravoltas."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"Directors Dan Klores and Fisher Stevens treat this as a straight-up documentary and it is fascinating in a terribly sad sort of way. But it's difficult not to wonder why we need to hear this story."
‑ Jean Lowerison, San Diego Metropolitan
"Offers little save morbid titillation."
‑ Shawn Levy, Oregonian
