Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It offers shallow pleasures and the satisfaction of seeing two actors in performances better than the film deserves."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"In a performance that is much deeper than the rest of the movie, Mr. Hurt allows Adam's anger and fear to leak out of his electric blue eyes, which are frequently on the brink of tears."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"Late Bloomers has its moments but mostly feels like an uncomfortable romp into old age."
‑ Rebecca Barry,
"Getting old ain't fun in this dreary comedy drama."
‑ Don Groves,
"I'm not sure the social prejudices Gavras tries to mine for laughs here quite exist anymore."
‑ Andrew O'Hehir,
"Ultimately, it's not distinctive enough to draw viewers who haven't given much thought to aging. But that still leaves a substantial audience for the film's gentle laughs and modest insights."
‑ Mark Jenkins, NPR
"A comedy about the changes and the challenges faced by a couple entering the far country of old age."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"It's a delight to see William Hurt and Isabella Rossellini given an age-appropriate showcase that doesn't involve heavy artillery."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
""Late Bloomers" could have been a much better movie, if only director and co-writer Julie Gavras were as sensible as her actors."
‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"Late Bloomers is a first rate rom-com about first world problems, with two great veteran actors delivering on a witty and poignant script."
‑ Matthew Pejkovic, Matt's Movie Reviews
