Consensus: Crazy Love's subjects and story are so compelling that they overcome the doc's dry, talking heads format.

As with all banner-head stories, there comes a point when you tire of being screamed at.

Far too readily tends to play this pathetic story for laughs.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

The in-your-face documentary recalls the sensational tabloid story from the 1950s.

Philadelphia Inquirer

A Bronx tale full of jaw-dropping behavior and jaw-dropping hairdos.

Particularly because many viewers have already seen the TV-news version, almost any other genre would have been even more compelling -- a fictionalized drama, perhaps, or Truman Capote-style narrative non-fiction.

Crazy Love...sidles up to us, thrills and surprises us, seduces us with the pop flavor of its mid-century paperback aesthetic and its titillating tabloid tale. Crazy Love is chummy.

New York Observer

It's too easy to feel superior to these two people and their marriage in hell for the sake of some easy (or even uneasy) laughter.

Roger Moore
Orlando Sentinel

You can't make this stuff up.

Pablo Villaça
Cinema em Cena

Apresenta, mesmo que de forma convencional, uma história de amor fascinante em suas insanas reviravoltas.
