Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This Story doesn't really deliver it."
‑ Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune
"The whole has a skittish quality."
‑ Susan Stark, Detroit News
"A collection of performances that are more than the creaky material deserves."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"A film that disappoints on every level."
‑ Sandra Ramani, Citysearch

"This one gets stuck in a rut pretty early on and has difficulty rising out of it."
‑ Jay Carr, Boston Globe
"Lightheartedly conveys that the sources of marital love can be renewed even after a period of spiritual dryness."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"I like what the film tries to do with this theme but shuddered as it was reduced to repetitious confrontations and hollow wisecracks."
‑ Mark Halverson, Sacramento News & Review
"Reasonably well-acted but executed without much grace or style."
‑ Philip Booth, Orlando Weekly
"The Story of Us is 100-percent predictable."
‑ Rob Blackwelder, SPLICEDWire
"Pungent, funny, and surprisingly forceful."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"There is no need to run right out. See a Matinee."
‑ Kamal 'The Diva' Larsuel, 3BlackChicks Review
"Watching these two attractive actors verbally slug it out is about as much fun as experiencing your own divorce."
‑ Steve Rhodes, Internet Reviews
"You can get all of this free on television any week, so why pay for it?"
‑ Lawrence Toppman, Charlotte Observer
"Too many long faces, too many too-big smiles, too many over-fought fights, too many cheap reconciliations -- and none of the resonant insight to justify any of it."
‑ Wesley Morris, San Francisco Examiner
