Critic Reviews of "Nobody's Fool"New YorkerOctober 29, 2013
The movie is both a star vehicle and an ensemble piece; the other actors revolve around Newman yet give off more than just his reflected light.Chicago TribuneOctober 29, 2013
We love to see our movie gods play flawed souls, especially a god with a face that looks like one on a Roman coin.Los Angeles TimesOctober 29, 2013
Moviegoing holds few pleasures greater than watching an established star completely inhabit a role that exactly suits his personality and abilities. And seeing Paul Newman in Nobody's Fool defines that pleasure.Orlando SentinelOctober 29, 2013
Nobody's Fool is funny at times and as cuddly as an old teddy bear. But this movie is being taken far too seriously in some circles.Seattle TimesOctober 29, 2013
While watching Robert Benton's sublime adaptation of Richard Russo's novel, it's hard to avoid the realization that movies like this have become an endangered species.Philadelphia InquirerOctober 29, 2013
The principal pleasure of this film directed by Robert Benton is that its characters are carefully drawn and developed rather than applied like so many decals on a two- dimensional wintry landscape.Christian Science MonitorOctober 29, 2013
Robert Benton has made Nobody's Fool, a return to the finely humanistic spirit that made his Places in the Heart and Kramer vs. Kramer' so popular.Empire MagazineOctober 29, 2013
Nobody's Fool is an unprecedented treat, populated with charming, believable characters and a parting shot so beautiful even the hardest of hearts will melt helplessly at its sight.Philadelphia Daily NewsOctober 29, 2013
Director Robert Benton captures the droll eccentricity of small-town life without any of the usual phony preciousness.People MagazineOctober 29, 2013
Over time, the rhythms of small-town life and the eccentricities of its residents can grow on you. That's exactly what happens as you watch this sharply observant movie.Radio TimesOctober 29, 2013
An old hand at this kind of heart-warming fare, Benton doesn't swamp it with sentimentality, allowing the crumpled charisma of Newman to effortlessly carry the drama.South Florida Sun-SentinelOctober 29, 2013
Newman clearly owns the part of Sully, but there is nary a false or uncertain note struck by anyone in this ensemble cast.
