What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
The Endependant Appearances are deceptive and the casting id brilliant
Amanda de Lange Komedie maak die hart warm, sonder stroperigheid
David Rooney Delicate strokes, fine acting
Pam Grady With witty and believable dialogue, a situation that's both funny and sad, and a group of actors that sink into their roles, this is McCarthy's best film yet. Once again, he proves that he is a writer with a grasp of character and story, a warm-hearted, generous chronicler of human connection. With his latest, he certainly got the title right.
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Roger Ebert I'm happy I saw Win Win. It would have been possible to be happier.
Adam Nayman If Win Win’s greatest strength is the shapeliness of its script, that same sense of literary roundness is also its most nagging limitation.
Peter Travers This movie wins you over, head and heart, without cheating. It's just about perfect.
C. Fuchs It might not sound like much on paper or a one line summary of the plot, but it's a tremendous examination of the human condition and, so far, the best movie of 2011.
Tomatometer Rich, wonderful characters and strong performances populate Win Win, with writer/director Thomas McCarthy continuing to emerge as a great American humanist.
