Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"a refreshing examination of the collective male psyche through pure drama"
‑ Anton Bitel, Eye for Film
"The performances are outstanding across the board, which is extraordinary considering that every single shot is a first take."
‑ Trent Griffiths, FILMINK (Australia)
"It's a powerful film that is often as unexpected as life itself."
‑ Louise Keller, Urban Cinefile
"In the end, despite its considerable shortcomings, Men's Group succeeds because it is moving and the problems of these men are addressed with such clarity and understanding."
‑ David Stratton, The Australian
"My first reaction after I saw Men's Group was a deep feeling of awe at the depth and standard of performance in this country."

"The key problem here is that the ensemble never really gels -- the tone of the performances is uneven and the pacing feels off."
‑ Jason Di Rosso, MovieTime, ABC Radio National
"The father/child relationship is at the heart of this extended psychotherapy session for an audience that is sucked into the group's brittle dynamic"
‑ Andrew L. Urban, Urban Cinefile
