Critic Reviews for A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

All Critics (262) | Top Critics (43)

With so much time devoted to Lloyd's world, A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood doesn't have room for any sort of standard arc about Fred Rogers...

November 22, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

This is a movie that's both entertainment and spiritual toolkit-take from it what you need.

It's hard not to wish that the story was as consistently good as the man -- and performance -- at its center... The temptation is nevertheless simply to give in to the movie, which is perhaps as it should be.

Top Critic

A kind of gentle and deeply affecting filmmaking that is completely original and reflective of Rogers himself.

November 22, 2019 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

A celebration of Mr. Rogers and the healing capabilities of his words and doctrine, the movie may not be a splashy as many of the year-end multiplex stocking stuffers but the experience it offers tugs effectively at the heart strings.

Hanks' energy in the role wonderfully gets at what A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood wants to convey.
