Consensus: A transfixing central performance by Kristen Wiig performance holds Welcome to Me together and compensates for its uneven stretches.

James Berardinelli
ReelViews

There's not much plot here and very little in the way of character development. Alice is defined by her disorder and the screenplay isn't interested in delving into her life and relationships.

It's a tricky business playing someone who is mentally ill and perhaps should be confined for observation, especially in a dark comedy. Wiig manages to make Alice funny as hell, endearing, sad and sometimes a little frightening.

No dramatic actor could have had as much fun with the principle "crazy in the head, crazy in bed" as Wiig does here. If she were a man, she'd be getting the reviews Bradley Cooper got in Silver Linings Playbook.

Welcome to Me is an unsettling comedy, and I mean that in the best possible way.

There's dark comedy, and then there's take-no-prisoners, dare-you-to-keep-looking dark comedy. Kristen Wiig's "Welcome to Me" falls decidedly in the latter category, making us laugh but feel deeply unsettled about doing so.

It's a crying shame (not a hysterical, mentally unwell crying shame), but a crying shame nevertheless that the movie falls short. Especially given Wiig's stellar performance.

"Welcome to Me" has its charming, funny and sensitive moments, but it also suffers from its own form of instability.

Chicago Reader

Screenwriter Eliot Laurence and director Shira Piven... [have] got the ideal star in Wiig, whose vacant gaze, frozen smile, and preternatural calm have always suggested a vast reservoir of madness.

If you go for Wiig, you'll get your money's worth.
