    It's repugnant for its dehumanizing view (however unintentionally so) of a black man, and repugnant for its emptying-out of one of the great black performers of the time into a sanitized symbol of acceptable blackness.

    After helming this, an episode of Roots and Best Picture-winner Driving Miss Daisy, Beresford should be forced to join 'Subservient Cinematic Negroes Anonymous.'

    Murphy's low-key but affecting performance is filled with loaded and loving glances. And the restraint becomes the 55-year-old star. If only the film were better.

    Washington Post

    Murphy is fine as the title character, although his performance consists mostly of suppressing all of his usual shtick. He certainly doesn't endow Mr. Church with any unexpected depths. But then neither does the script.

    Los Angeles Times

    Somehow Murphy manages to lift his dignified, all-knowing servant character off the page, giving a meticulously composed performance in a vehicle that can't help but feel superficially repackaged.

    Get out your handkerchiefs, but don't expect to believe a minute of this vastly improbable tale.

    Man, this type of role is really out of pocket for Eddie Murphy. He isn't funny, and he isn't particularly interesting.

    Very hokey and old-fashioned in its sensibilities, but Eddie Murphy's performance is excellent.
    September 23, 2016

    Murphy's understated portrayal is a highlight in an otherwise heavy-handed examination of the way in which troubled souls come together to form surrogate families.

    "Mr. Church" serves up comfort food in an era when every food truck and most indie films offer more interesting fare.

    Cliched drama has sad moments, drinking, stereotypes.

    Deseret News, Salt Lake City
    September 16, 2016

    There are several things to like about a quiet drama like Mr. Church. But the thing that feels most notable about director Bruce Beresford's story of a young woman and her unique father figure is the presence of Eddie Murphy in the title role.
