Roger Ebert quote iconYou won't have a bad time seeing this film. You may get a little frustrated waiting for it to take off. It keeps heading down different runways. There's a movie here somewhere. Not this one.

eye Weekly
Adam Nayman quote iconYou can count the sincere, affecting moments in Sunshine Cleaning on one hand. Start tallying up the obvious metaphors, however, and you might run out of fingers by the end of the second act.

ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconWhile the blood may be off-putting to some, Rose and Norah's company for 90 minutes warrants the concession.

Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconThis funny and touching movie depends on two can-do actresses to scrub past the biohazard of noxious clichés that threaten to intrude. Adams and Blunt get the job done. They come highly recommended.

C. Fuchs quote iconPerhaps not everyone's cup of tea, but for those who don't mind some emotional and visceral mess that needs tending to, Sunshine Cleaning might be just what the janitor and maid ordered.
