Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A well-meaning but unstable hand at the tiller, and a propensity for charting plot points, rather than a clear narrative destination."
‑ John Anderson, Newsday
"Mighty Fine is an incisive portrait of an insecure, manic-depressive tyrant that Mr. Palminteri makes entirely believable."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"A somewhat drab and unimaginative telling further dents this dull melodrama of already rather limited psychological insights, and pat conclusions and catharses."
‑ Brent Simon, Shared Darkness
"Debbie Goodstein-Rosenfeld's film seems oddly anemic when it deals with anyone but Chazz Palminteri's Joe."
‑ Andrew Schenker, Slant Magazine
"If you can overlook Andie MacDowell's Mitteleuropa accent as a Jewish Holocaust survivor (I know: big if), the cinematic roman a clef "Mighty Fine" has some quiet charms."
‑ Kyle Smith, New York Post
"Too many directions can be as much of a liability for a movie as too few, and "Mighty Fine" heads in all of them."
‑ Mark Feeney, Boston Globe
"We're left with something akin to a Lifetime movie, as there are a number of interesting possibilities, which could have added complexity and depth to the film, that are never fleshed out."
‑ Christine N. Ziemba, Paste Magazine
"A semi-autobiographical story of a man's over-reaching, which leads him to consider violent options in dealing with himself and his family."
‑ Harvey S. Karten, Compuserve
""Mighty Fine," unfortunately, isn't."
‑ Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times
"Director Debbie Goodstein-Rosenfeld wraps so much narrative string around this slight ball it unravels messily, despite nice work from the reliable Palminteri."
‑ Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News
"Mighty bad."
‑ David Noh, Film Journal International
