Critic Reviews for The Girl in the Picture

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (2)

Mostly, however, the jokes are small and a touch familiar.

This film deserves a place on that list of warmhearted slices of life, but not a place near the top. It is so slight, so rambling, so taken with its own charm that it never really involves us.

...a slight film, but not without pleasures...

There's no chemistry between the mismatched leads. Fortunately there's enough going on around them to keep the picture enjoyable.
