Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The movie has its flaws, but they are few and forgivable."
‑ Stephen Garrett, Time Out New York
"A weird, unpleasant little movie."
‑ Jami Bernard, New York Daily News
"It'd be nice if Tarantino would go back to making his own films (which are usually pretty doggoned good) rather than helping out young filmmakers to produce garbage."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"Unusual and in places refreshing, Daltry Calhoun is a good natured independent comedy drama independent film fans will endorse."
‑ Jonathan W. Hickman, Entertainment Insiders
"There's no reason to see this film, not even on cable. None!"
‑ Eric Lurio, Greenwich Village Gazette
"Southern whimsy, when handled delicately, can produce a precious jewel a la Junebug. In less skillful hands, it can be merely precious."
‑ Jan Stuart, Newsday
"Although the film starts off somewhat amusingly, the first-time feature director Katrina Holden Bronson seems to have spent more energy assembling the overbearing soundtrack than expanding on her characters' fractured relationships."
‑ Laura Kern, New York Times
"For all its good intentions, Daltry Calhoun is a predictable, derivative film."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"It seems everyone involved meant well, but this one moves like an empty boat in a pond."
‑ Kevin Allison, Film Journal International
"The old 'Bachelor Father' formula is resurrected with a killer dose of whimsy in this pointedly quirky, almost unbearably dilatory feature."
‑ Frank Swietek, One Guy's Opinion
"Knoxville tries hard and exudes a certain likability, but can't really handle big dramatic moments at this point in his career."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"Anyone looking for a paean to the unnatural allure of a sprinklered lawn can see that the grass is greener in Blue Velvet."
‑ Benjamin Strong, Village Voice
"Contains a couple of lovely scenes that are all but smothered by a shambling mess of self-conscious eccentricity."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Boasts Quentin Tarantino as co-executive producer but falls about as far from that particular tree as one can imagine."
‑ Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle
"Newcomer Sophie Traub is a natural charmer who hovers above the confusion like an angel even as her co-stars are sucked into the muck."
‑ John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
