"An ordeal of excruciating contrived nonsense..."

The GuardianThe Guardian


Slant MagazineSlant Magazine

"A terrible movie."

The Washington PostThe Washington Post

"A near-great movie."

San Francisco ChronicleSan Francisco Chronicle



"An excellent Florence Pugh can’t save this melodramatic mess."

Seattle TimesSeattle Times

"The intentions of the movie are clear and admirable, but the execution... misses the mark."

Slash FilmSlash Film

"Much of the film reads as a crassly manufactured setup for the arc of redemption and healing that follows."

The New York TimesThe New York Times

"Florence Pugh and Morgan Freeman lift Zach Braff’s laboured trauma drama."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"The latest torrent of miscalculated uplift from cineaste Zach Braff..."

Little White LiesLittle White Lies

"Braff's third film as a writer/director shows steps towards maturation, and features two solid lead performances."


"In due course, Braff’s toughest, messiest movie spins out of his control."


"A bad movie about unreal people."

Chicago Sun-TimesChicago Sun-Times

"The drama is a cluster of scenes with bad dialogue and platitudes instead of actual pathos. The comedy comes in when it’s uncalled for, breaking whatever genuine emotion the actors worked hard to craft."

A.V. ClubA.V. Club

"(Braff) achieves something accomplished by no other filmmaker to date: he extracts a bad performance from Florence Pugh."

The TelegraphThe Telegraph

"An otherwise average melodrama is elevated by two movie stars on top form."

We Got This CoveredWe Got This Covered

"Lord knows, Braff is no social realist."

Financial TimesFinancial Times

"Braff anchors the film with tender-hearted, touching performances..."


"(Braff) continues to be an aggravatingly unsubtle filmmaker..."

Austin ChronicleAustin Chronicle

"A Good Person highlights the director’s inability to deal with heavier material."

Boston GlobeBoston Globe

"A haunting slice of real life..."

Los Angeles TimesLos Angeles Times

"(Pugh) plays a young woman dealing with PTSD, a dependency on pills, and personal demons. You know the drill."

Rolling StoneRolling Stone

"It's got its moments, but a very frustrating film overall."


"The tone is jarring throughout, mostly preachy and po-faced, and built upon several awkwardly overperformed scenes..."
