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

James Berardinelli

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.

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

Total Film

Veering suddenly and wildly between sharp comedy and sharper tragedy, Shira Piven's bold indie rests almost entirely on Wiig, who offers up a fearless performance.

No shortage of talent here. Pity they're all underused.

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.

Chris Newbould
The National (UAE)

Wiig delivers a standout performance that manages to make Alice at once interesting, humorous, irritating and infuriating, but always successfully stops just short of making her an object of ridicule.

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

A funny and touching Kristen Wiig walks an acting tightrope in this dark comedy.
