Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's not easy being Meat Loaf."
‑ Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News
"You can't help but love the Loaf, and that spills over into most anything he does."
‑ Frank Lovece, Film Journal International
"The flick's signature shots are doors closing on Klein's camera. Meat Loaf is busy, he's sick, he's tired, he's in a confidential discussion. The excuses flow forth."
‑ Amy Nicholson, Boxoffice Magazine
"Much takes place offstage in 'Meat Loaf,' so there are few seconds wasted on the de rigueur ecstasy of audiences older than rockumentary adolescents."
‑ Donald J. Levit, ReelTalk Movie Reviews
"In Search of Paradise portrays Meat Loaf as an obsessive, self-punishing performer, striving in vain to put on a live show that matches the visions in his head."
‑ Matt Zoller Seitz, New York Times
"At age 59, Meat Loaf launches a worldwide tour for his album, Bat Out Of Hell III, with new stagings of some of his iconic songs. This fabulous rock doc is a first time look at Meat's grueling artistic process. It's amazing."
‑ Jennifer Merin, About.com
"Meat Loaf: In Search of Paradise never feels egregious or intentionally heart-tugging, but seeing the indomitable performer lying prostrate with physical and emotional exhaustion is not a pretty sight. It is in these moments and Meat Loaf's own wil"
‑ Diva Velez, TheDivaReview.com
"Pure promo fluff."
‑ Nick Schager, Slant Magazine
"At once hagiographic and revealing, backstage docu Meat Loaf: In Search of Paradise follows the never-a-dull-moment rocker during Los Angeles rehearsals and an early 2007 Canadian tour."
‑ Eddie Cockrell, Variety
"Watch this film only if you are a die hard Meatloaf fan and have seen everything else already. Best to watch with the sound off and with his Platinum album playing in the background."
‑ Ron Wilkinson, Monsters and Critics
"A surprisingly unvarnished picture of the performed emerges despite Klein's uncritical approach."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
