Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The coincidences are almost all supremely transparent and the characters gratingly quirky, two faults that committed acting almost redeems. But not quite."
‑ Matt Weitz, Dallas Morning News
"You can see what's coming five minutes into the movie, but capable acting lends it a certain superficial charm."
‑ Ella Taylor, L.A. Weekly
"It's moving, poignant, funny, and charming. Best of all, the characters get the closure they need and when they find renewed hope, it lifts your spirits."
‑ Cherryl Dawson and Leigh Ann Palone, TheMovieChicks.com
"Despite its flaws, Mind the Gap comes together as a beautiful portrait of seemingly unrelated ties that lead to important shifts in the lives of total strangers."
‑ Rachel Gordon, Filmcritic.com
"The performances are solid, even when the roles are aggressively whimsical."
‑ Colin Covert, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"Warm-hearted but clear-eyed indie effort richly repays audience patience during deliberately paced and provocatively allusive early scenes with a cumulative emotional impact that is immensely satisfying."
‑ Joe Leydon, Variety
"Because the performances are so true, we believe in these people, even when they're doing unbearably wacky things."
‑ Chris Hewitt (St. Paul), St. Paul Pioneer Press
"Schaeffer's voice represents the Average Joe in a bar who thinks he has all the answers about the human condition but has nothing interesting to say. Yet, he keeps talking."
‑ Erik Childress, eFilmCritic.com
"There are a couple of affecting moments here and there, but they are lost amid more than two snail-paced hours of often maudlin tedium."
‑ , Los Angeles Times
"An overly ambitious, overly complex and overly long opus that bites off more than it can chew."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"Formulaic but surprisingly affecting."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"This is a solid under-the-radar sleeper."
‑ Merle Bertrand, Film Threat
