Critic Reviews of "The Hollars"Seattle TimesSeptember 15, 2016
Krasinski, who also directed the film, may have spread himself too thin; there's a desperation about the closing scenes, cluttered as they are with bouncy pop songs on the soundtrack.Philadelphia InquirerSeptember 08, 2016
Opening with a promising first act comprising well-observed, edgy humor, the film ends with an overdose of treacle so syrupy, so pungent, it will unsettle the strongest tummy.Minneapolis Star TribuneSeptember 08, 2016
It is a perfect storm of boredom.Chicago ReaderSeptember 01, 2016
Jenkins and Martindale, both old hands at this sort of "dramedy" material, come through for Krasinski as the story darkens in the second half.Chicago Sun-TimesSeptember 01, 2016
"The Hollars" is an uneven, ineffective and self-conscious dysfunctional family comedy/drama with a Sundance-y vibe, and scene after scene in which the greatly talented and usually quite likable cast members keep stepping in big piles of wrong choices.Boston GlobeSeptember 01, 2016
If Krasinski relates in any significant way to his character's self-doubt, you wouldn't know it from the movie, on which he does confident double duty as director.El Pais (Spain)March 22, 2017
With a certain hint of dark comedy, Jim Strouse's script talks about the economic crisis, small business's problems and the return of the forty-year-old to home. [Full review in Spanish]El Mundo (Spain)March 17, 2017
Fun situations and dialogues are scarce and dramatic moments become trivialized until they're deprived of any capacity to move. [Full review in Spanish]Cinemanía (Spain)March 14, 2017
The director manages to give the film that fair dose of sentimentalism and a cute sense of humor without being cheesy, all thanks to a perfect cast of actors. [Full review in Spanish]SensacineMarch 06, 2017
A film that possesses a certain personality, given that it give its characters a force above the archetype they represent, but in the long run, it's not enough. [Full review in Spanish]Seven DaysJanuary 01, 2017
The Hollars does achieve occasional poignant moments, most of them due to Martindale's warm presence and the goodwill she inspires. But the other actors have little to work with.Capital Times (Madison, WI)October 05, 2016
Maybe there's a longer, more graceful earlier version out there. Maybe there's an earlier version of the screenplay that emphasizes authenticity over punchlines. But what's on screen feels like an overly cautious, watered-down final draft.
