Rottentomatoes tomatometer
Tomatometer quote iconDaisy Edgar-Jones gives it her all, but Where the Crawdads Sing is ultimately unable to distill its source material into a tonally coherent drama.

CommonSenseMedia
Sandie Angulo Chen quote iconStandout performances in uneven, trauma-filled adaptation.
10
ScreenIt
Jim Judy quote iconIn the end, I liked it enough to give Where the Crawdads Sing a slight recommendation and a score of 5.5 out of 10.
