Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Fine Line is trying to lure the same female viewers that embraced Enchanted April to htis mediocre comedy-mystery, starring Mia Farrow in her first non-Wood Allen picture; Joan Plowright as a domineering widow steals the show--again."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"A diverting and well-acted English film with just the right mix of comedy and mystery."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice

‑ Christopher Null, Filmcritic.com
"a low-key character comedy that's worth a look"
‑ James Sanford, Kalamazoo Gazette
