The Press Reviews

  • It's not that Johnson isn't a compelling dramatic figure, but [Rob] Reiner's film is too broad and simplistic to capture why that is. Full Review

  • "LBJ" is a frustratingly underdeveloped vehicle for Mr. Harrelson's talents as well as an unfortunate missed opportunity. Full Review

  • An attentively presented but oddly unrewarding viewing experience despite a persuasive Woody Harrelson lead performance as Lyndon Baines Johnson. Full Review

  • This is definitely the wrong Commander In Chief to portray as an overgrown grumpy toddler, but that's how Joey Hartstone's simplistic script often characterizes him. Full Review
