What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Munya Vumo Gray delivers something special.
Paul Boekkooi Glibberige riller laat min plek vir karakters.
Todd McCarthy A low-down, dirty tale of murder, sex and the legal system.
Peter Travers Director Lee Daniels, Oscar-nominated for Precious, follows his instincts, no matter how pervy, leaving plot, character and logic to catch up.
Tomatometer Trashy and melodramatic, The Paperboy is enlivened by a strong cast and a steamy, sordid plot, but it's uneven and often veers into camp.
