Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A superlative, juicy mother-daughter melodrama with top notch performance from Bette Davis, at the top of her form, and the rest of the cast."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"It's all far more complicated than it needs to be, but then again, what would you cut?"
‑ David Cornelius,
"Now, Voyager remains a highly narcotic, swoon-inducing romance in the Bette Davis canon."
‑ Jeremiah Kipp, Slant Magazine
"Classic Davis soaper with Henreid doing the double cigarette bit."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Now, Voyager (1942) is the quintessential, soap-opera or "woman's picture" ('weepie') and one of Bette Davis' best-acted and remembered films, coming shortly"
‑ Tim Dirks, Tim Dirks' The Greatest Films
"Lots of appeal for highly romantic teens."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"Compulsively watchable four-hankie weepie."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"...romantic and romanticized, sudsy and sentimental...a throwback to an earlier age in Hollywood when movies didn't have to be loud or vulgar to sell a point."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"The melodrama to end all melodramas."
‑ Gabriel Shanks, Mixed Reviews
"If you can resist Bette Davis in fat suit, hideous dress, and monobrow, you're not as gay as you think you are. I guess I kind of liked it."
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"Classic to the max, and with Davis, Henried, and those two cigarettes."
‑ Steve Crum,
"Consummate Warner Bros. melodrama, with Bette excellent as misfit and even better as reborn glamour-puss."
‑ Nick Davis, Nick's Flick Picks
"Wholly unbelievable."
‑ Christopher Null,
