Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The filmmaker got the raspberries he deserved for trying to outdo Cassavetes's somewhat charming throwaway pic without offering any improvements."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Stone doesn't act in this one."
‑ Victoria Alexander, FilmsInReview.com
"Yes, Miss Stone, you can act. We get it already. Now it's time to start entertaining your audience, something you haven't done in much too long."
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"Gloria is another sad example of what happens to old masters when they become too prolific."
‑ Dragan Antulov, Draxblog Movie Reviews
"Unfortunately, not a good picture."
‑ Ross Anthony, Hollywood Report Card
"Unable to commit to being a thriller or a character study, the movie settles for being an excitement-free drag."
‑ James Sanford, Kalamazoo Gazette
"The original is better."
‑ Nell Minow, Movie Mom at Yahoo! Movies
"The film itself is simply lifeless, with only an occasional laugh popping up here and there so that it isn't completely unbearable to watch."
‑ Dustin Putman, DustinPutman.com
