Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot | Ratings & Reviews

"The crowning achievement of director Gus Van Sant’s biopic of the late American cartoonist and wheelchair user John Callahan, based on his memoir of the same name, is the nuanced exploration of a tough theme: the difference between forgiving yourself and not feeling sorry for yourself."

Flicks, Luke BuckmasterFlicks

"Charting the late John Callahan’s rocky road from alcoholism, through the car crash that left him a quadriplegic, to taking the twelve steps of Alcoholics Anonymous and gaining notoriety for his frank and darkly humorous cartoons, director Gus Van Sant (Good Will Hunting and Milk) employs a no-frills, naturalistic style, in a warts and all, decidedly unheroic portrait of a man battling his demons on the way to recovery."

Flicks, Adam FrescoFlicks

"Phoenix tends to get lost in his parts, which can lead him (along with his films) astray. But when his high-wire emotional arc suits the movie, there are few who can touch him."

VultureVulture

"A life-affirming sweet-and-sour concoction ..."

VarietyVariety

"Hill is good, finding a sincere wavelength for his role which doesn't push Donnie at us too mockingly: he's this film's equivalent of Robin Williams in Good Will Hunting."

The TelegraphThe Telegraph

"Van Sant pays tribute to the restorative power of faith, discipline and perseverance, but he also resists the temptation to follow these themes into an overly pat or complacent groove."

Los Angeles TimesLos Angeles Times

"Mara is an actress who deserves far more than to be arm candy."

IndependentIndependent

"This unwieldy but consistently enjoyable portrait of paraplegic local hero John Callahan is notable for its generosity of spirit and gentleness."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"Despite strong performances from Phoenix and Hill, Don't Worry can't out run its deluge of clichés."
