Military Wives | Ratings & Reviews

"…superficial and flashy."


"It might be utterly predictable and undemanding, but its bittersweet comedy and rousing singalongs will endear it to many."

New Zealand ListenerNew Zealand Listener

"There's a natural and useful contrast between Scott Thomas, so patrician and brittle, and Horgan, with her unforced comic timing and her Irish vowels. Their performances are the film's best asset."

Sydney Morning HeraldSydney Morning Herald

"A well-enough made dramedy with just enough bite in its backend to stir something that actually felt like an honest emotional response."


"Scott Thomas and Horgan are excellent and together manage to elevate the story beyond the everyday. While there aren't as many laughs as you'd hope for, there are just enough quirky characters to lighten the mood."

New Zealand HeraldNew Zealand Herald

"A cheerfully treacly story of sisterhood, adversity overcome and music healing even the deepest wounds."

Daily TelegraphDaily Telegraph

"Not as good as The Full Monty or Brassed Off but better than Swimming With Men and Fisherman's Friends, Military Wives is a familiar, entertaining hymn to the power of people coming together in adversity."

Empire MagazineEmpire Magazine

"A nice enough time that never really aspires to be anything more, “Military Wives” isn’t just the kind of movie that ends with Sister Sledge’s “We Are Family,” it’s the kind of movie that ends with the entire cast singing along."


"If you’ve seen even one based-on-a-true-story British misfit hobbyists movie, you already know the tune."


"It works for the most part because, when done well, there’s something irresistible about the formula ... But there are also times when Military Wives starts to creak."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"You are well aware of the shameless manipulation and can second-guess exactly where it is going and yet resistance is futile. It tugs at the heartstrings with such determination and sincerity that there may not be a dry eye in the cinema."

Screen DailyScreen Daily

"Sure, it shamelessly panders to our collective sense of duty to support the troops — and, of course, also support the families that support the troops — and maybe it's more than a little manipulative and formulaic. But gosh darn it, it's hard not to warm to a film that features an a cappella version of Yazoo's "Only You...""
