Made in Dagenham gamely depicts an interesting bit of history, but its real message is a matter of principle.

Minneapolis Star Tribune

It's an entertaining, humanist slice of social history scored with a soundtrack of upbeat late-'60s radio hits.

Made in Dagenham is exuberant, touching, fashionable, invigorating and simply absolutely delightful to watch.

Amy Biancolli
Houston Chronicle

A spirited look -- well written, beautifully acted, full of uplift -- at lovably cheeky heroines on the march for a little respect.

St. Louis Post-Dispatch

The likable little British import "Made in Dagenham" delivers an overdue valentine to some unsung heroines of the people-power revolution.

Critic's Notebook

Unfortunately, the story is just so predictable that there's little dramatic tension to speak of.

It's a nice breather indeed.

Moira MacDonald
Seattle Times

The real women of the Ford plant - seen briefly and tantalizing in footage played over the credits - surely could tell a more compelling story than this agreeable but overfamiliar effort; perhaps some documentarian, some day, will give them the chance.

Roger Moore
Tribune News Service

A cheeky and uplifting "inspired-by-a-true-story" that overcomes its predictability with sparkling performances, a dash of wit and a lot of heart

An entertaining, but curiously, slightly frustratingly middle class image of working class struggle.
