Critic Reviews for C'mon C'mon

All Critics (168) | Top Critics (46)

C'mon C'mon is awash with regret-over badly tended sibling relationships, undealt-with mommy issues, but also the satisfaction of everyday caretaking, the hope implicit in all those lunches made and dishes done.

What we have here is basically a 2020s riff on 'Kramer vs. Kramer,' the modern man, unexpectedly pressed into child-rearing, and finding something of himself in the process.

C'mon C'mon is a great big bear hug wrapped in celluloid.

December 6, 2021 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

This is a movie about listening - really listening - to what other people have to say.

December 4, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The chemistry of Mills's cast is so compelling that it carries the film above the weight of its more navel-gazing moments.

December 3, 2021 | Full Review…

A film, heartfelt yet deeply considered, that in almost every scene is trying to make sense of that happy, sad, full, empty and always shifting life that we are in.
