Critic Reviews of "Running with Scissors"Ebert & RoeperOctober 31, 2006
In the real world, mental illness is a serious problem. In this film, it gives everyone a license to run around like characters in a Lewis Carroll story -- all of it set to predictable pop hits from the 1970s.ReelViewsOctober 29, 2006
As dysfunctional family movies go, this is one skip. It doesn't just run with the scissors, it falls on them.Seattle TimesOctober 27, 2006
Running with Scissors looks great, and works fine when Bening is on screen; otherwise, it's off-balance, teetering where it should hold steady.Philadelphia InquirerOctober 27, 2006
If the book was deadpan, the movie is more -- or less -- dead.Orlando SentinelOctober 27, 2006
This is an Igby Goes Down without the laughs, a morbid miscalculation of The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou size.Minneapolis Star TribuneOctober 27, 2006
The film trips over its willy-nilly story line and falls on its own blade.CinePassionAugust 28, 2009
Strictly for the Anderson-Baumbach crowd of privileged idiotsColeSmithey.comApril 24, 2009
Based on Augusten Burrough's memoir, "Running With Scissors" traverses the '70's American zeitgeist in eccentric personal terms when the American dream plummeted into horror with the aid of prescription drugs.BrandonFibbs.comFebruary 28, 2008
Running With Scissors is a schizophrenic film. It simply doesn't know what it wants to be %u2014 a witty and wacky satire, or a serious and heartfelt drama.Urban CinefileMarch 23, 2007
For every aspect that is depressing, there something that is fresh and uplifting, and it is credit to writer director Ryan Murphy for capturing the mood of Burroughs' book so faithfully.The Coast (Halifax, Nova Scotia)March 15, 2007
The excruciating display of bohemian spoils wears the word "delightful" in quotation marks, with a theatre accent.thelondonpaperFebruary 02, 2007
The first half rolls along like an excitable child hoping to entertain with each new stunt. But it loses the book's dark humour. Running with Scissors? More like a stumble.
