Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Although, at times, the sluggish action of One Week seems to creep by in real time, the film is kept believable by honest, low-key performances and a script that sounds like the way real people talk."
‑ Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
"A rather crude affair that feels like a student film."
‑ Jonathan Foreman, New York Post
"It seems a satire more than a serious exploration, each purported plot twist telegraphed with a hilarious leaden clumsiness."
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"Deserves to be given time for the word to get out on just how good it is."
‑ John Monaghan, Detroit Free Press
"Holds together in spite of its flaws."
‑ A.O. Scott, New York Times
"Mixing comedy and romance with such a grave subject is a dicey proposition, but Seaton gets the balance just right."
‑ Ken Fox, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"The film's important message is delivered without excessive sentimentality or being overly preachy."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"Hits its target and does it the old-fashioned way, not with didacticism but with a solid story and, for the most part, well-crafted, authentic characters that deepen over the course of the film, giving genuine emotional power to the film's resolutions."
‑ Loren King, Chicago Tribune
