Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"An agonizingly amateurish WWII rom-com."
‑ Kyle Smith, New York Post
"A movie so unendurably bad it deserves to be put down like a sick dog."
‑ Ty Burr, Boston Globe
"The plot isn't entirely successful in achieving the farcical tone it aims for."
‑ Mike McGranaghan, Aisle Seat
"A better script, stronger direction and a likable star could have made Waiting for Dublin worthy of the best whimsy."
‑ Robin Clifford, Reeling Reviews
"Waiting for Dublin can't end soon enough."
‑ Robert Koehler, Variety
"Its shrill amateurishness makes it feel homemade in all the wrong ways."
‑ Tasha Robinson, AV Club
"[It's] aiming at pleasantly diverting, and can't seem to hit that reasonably located target."

‑ Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
"One more bad choice you can make around St. Patrick's Day."
‑ Matt Pais, Metromix.com
