Movie Info

Veteran comedy writer Charlie Burnz (Billy Crystal) forms an unlikely yet hilarious and touching friendship with New York singer Emma Payge (Tiffany Haddish) in the new comedy-drama Here Today. Emma -- the unlikely recipient of a prize to have lunch with the comedy legend, despite not knowing who he is -- gets off to a rocky start with Charlie (think seafood allergy, a hospital visit, and an epi pen). Before long, each finds in the other a sort of soul mate, forging a deep bond that kicks the generation gap aside and redefines the meaning of friendship, love, and trust.

Critic Reviews for Here Today

All Critics (96) | Top Critics (26)

This is more indulgent, and the more it goes on the more mawkish it unfortunately becomes. It's clearly a very personal project, but it just loses its way very badly.

September 21, 2021 | Full Review…

A film with a big heart and more zingers than actual laughs.

September 8, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

A glossily disingenuous piece of work.

September 5, 2021 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

A very heavy and indigestible meal of emotional correctness.

September 2, 2021 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Sure, there is a fair bit of whimsy and jarring dialogue, but Crystal is able to bring his usual self-deprecating style to an otherwise unoriginal story. Haddish is hugely likeable.

September 2, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The handling is soggy and often tone-deaf, the kernel of mournful humanity the closest thing to a saving grace.
